The Berkeley Symposium on Energy Efficient Electronic Systems was established in 2009 with the goal of bringing together researchers from around the world working on breakthroughs in next generation low-energy information processing systems. In 2017, the Berkeley Symposium joined forces with the Steep Transistors Workshop with the goal of further expanding its reach and impact. The joint event presented a unique forum for speakers, from academia, industry, and government laboratories, to share their perspectives, discuss issues, and present new approaches.
The biennial programs included keynote presentations, invited and contributed talks, as well as poster sessions and expert panels. This structure enabled attendees to gain a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities in low-energy information processing systems, extending from new low-power nanoelectronic devices, through circuit design, chip-scale architecture, short-range interconnects, long-range interconnect, networks, software, storage systems, servers data centers and supercomputers.

In 2019, the Berkeley Symposium partnered with the IEEE S3S Conference and became a part of this premier event in electronics. More details about the IEEE S3S Conference can be found here.
