ISPSD 2014 Travel Information
As ISPSD is an international conference, the organizers realize that each attendee will have unique travel requirements. Thus, several travel options for attending the conference are outlined below. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact us using the information provided on the contact page.
Traveling from Kona Airport (KOA) to the Hilton
When departing the Kona International Airport, turn left (north) onto Highway 19 for approximately 20 minutes. Continue until you see the Waikoloa Beach Drive turnoff to the left (west) of the highway. Along Waikoloa Beach Drive, you will pass four stop signs. Just after the fourth stop sign, you will see the entrance to Hilton Waikoloa Village on the left.
ISPSD 2014 Hotel Accommodations
ISPSD 2014 will be held at the Hilton Waikoloa Village. The conference venue is a resort hotel, and a block of discounted rooms has been set aside for ISPSD attendees. We encourage every attendee to stay at the resort in order to fully participate in the many technical and social activities available during the conference. The number of rooms in our block is limited, so please book your room as early as possible.
A website has been set up by the Hilton to allow attendees to easily book rooms in our room block and access our excellent room rates. Please use this link to make a hotel room reservation at the Hilton Waikoloa Village.
You may also book a room in our block by calling 1-800-HILTONS and using the group code “ISP”.
ISPSD 2014 Visas
The organization team for ISPSD 2014 recognizes than some attendees and presenters will require visas in order to enter the Unites States. If you have any questions regarding US visas or you would like to request an official invitation letter, please contact the Technical Program Chair (John Shen) at email@example.com.
The International Symposium on Power Semiconductor Devices and ICs (ISPSD) brings together the world's foremost experts on power devices and power integrated circuit technologies and applications. It has become the premier international conference in this field, drawing an annual attendance of about 400 engineers, scientists, students, and professors.
In 2014, ISPSD will return to Hawaii for the first time in nearly 20 years. The conference will be held on the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii, which includes two active volcanoes, the tallest mountain on the planet, beautiful beaches, abundant hiking, snorkeling, and many other outdoor adventures. The Hilton Waikoloa Village Resort, our conference venue, features several on-site restaurants (including European, Japanese, and Chinese cuisine), numerous indoor and outdoor meeting spaces, swimming pools with waterfalls, a private lagoon, and even a live dolphin experience.
ISPSD 2014 will open with an all-day short-course lecture series on June 15, followed by four full days of technical sessions (June 16 - 19). Sessions will run sequentially, with no parallel sessions, enabling participants to listen to, and ask questions of, every presenter. Frequent breaks will be provided and several social events are planned (including a genuine Hawaiian Luau) to allow conference attendees to network and exchange ideas in an informal setting. In addition, exhibitors' booths will provide an opportunity for participants to learn about the equipment and services of companies that support the power electronics industry.
The ISPSD 2014 organizing committee is working hard to insure that this conference will be a success. The most important factors in that success will be the high-quality contributions of prospective authors and the participation of power device enthusiasts from all over the world. Please submit your abstracts, register early, spread the word to your friends and colleagues, and help us to make ISPSD 2014 a valuable and memorable experience for all.
