November 2-3, 2022 | American Institute of Architects HQ, Washington, D.C.

DSI’s Assured Microelectronics Summit will bring together members of the DoD, US Government, and Industry to focus on the technologies and policies needed to enhance microelectronics capabilities in support of increased supply chain resilience & overall national security efforts. Microelectronics have been rapidly evolving as the demand for inexpensive and lightweight equipment has increased and have been incorporated into countless DoD systems. With modernization abilities being jeopardized by foreign microelectronics (ME) production, actions, and investments, there is an effort by senior leaders across the federal government to develop and deliver next generation microelectronic technologies to enhance lethality, protect against supply chain disruption, and achieve economic competitiveness.

Why You Should Attend This Summit:

Supply chain constraints have critically impacted production of semiconductors and other microelectronic systems. These disruptions have affected the availability of many goods upon which Americans rely including smartphones, computers, and automobiles. At the Assured Microelectronics Summit, attendees will hear from leaders across the DoD, Federal government, industry, and academic communities about how the US can overcome these challenges and reassert strategic dominance in the microelectronics sector.

Senior leaders within the federal government, DoD, and their industry partners have identified microelectronics as one of their top research and engineering modernization priorities, and have recently added billions of dollars of funding through the CHIPS Act to be invested in this technology.

Attendees will hear from leaders and experts across the Federal Government, Industry, and microelectronics research and development communities about current challenges. Additionally, the Summit will also convene a panel of industry leaders to discuss how public-private partnerships can overcome supply chain disruptions and empower American innovation.

DSI’s Summit directly supports these DoD and Federal Government priorities by providing a forum for officials to efficiently reach audiences outside of their respective offices that directly impact their department's mission success, at no charge to the government, and in an efficient expenditure of time.

Exhibit and Sponsorship Opportunities Available!

The Assured Microelectronics Summit provides opportunities including exhibit space, round table discussions, product demonstrations, and networking receptions.

Operating Guidance for Government Attendees:

DSI’s Summit directly supports DoD, Federal Government, and private industry by providing a conduit for officials to efficiently reach audiences outside of their respective offices that directly impact their department's mission success, at no charge to the government, and in an efficient expenditure of time.

DSI’s Summit will provide a forum to address and improve internal and external initiatives, meet with and hear from partner organizations, disseminate vital capability requirements to industry, increase visibility within the larger community, and generally support their mission.

The Summit is open and complimentary to all DoD and Federal Government employees and is considered an educational and training forum.
