The 3rd IEEE Student Research Symposium at UCR and IEEE Electron Devices Society Mini-Colloquium on Microelectronics were jointly held on April 1st, 2011, at UCR. ISRS-UCR is a student-run research symposium at UCR which provides an interactive forum for both undergraduate and graduate students to share their research experiences and outcomes. It was jointly sponsored by the IEEE Electron Devices Society and the Bourns College of Engineering. The event was organized by the IEEE Electron Devices Society UCR Student Branch Chapter. The joint events started with the IEEE Mini-Colloquium, which features three technical seminar talks by IEEE Distinguished Lecturers. Prof. Ya-hong Xie from the Dept. of Material Science and Engineering at UCLA discussed about “Critical Assessment of Graphene for FET Applications “, which was followed by a talk by Prof. Stephen Parke, the Engineering Dean at Olivet Nazarene University with a topic of “Quest for the Ultimate Nanoscale Silicon CMOS Transistor”. The third talk was given by Dr. Ravi Todi from IBM who discussed about “Advanced CMOS Process Integration: looking beyond conventional scaling”. The IEEE MQ was well received by more than seventy attendees who enjoyed both the presentations and the Q&A session. Immediately following the IEEE MQ, the 3rd ISRS-UCR was held in as an interactive forum. There were about twenty graduate student papers and forty undergraduate student papers participated in the Forum. The IEEE speakers also served as the judges to select the Best Student Paper winners. The winners were:

Graduate Papers:

1st Place Award: Shermin Arab (Advisor: Dr. Roger Lake), Electrical Engineering
2nd Place Award: Shaahin Amini (Advisor: Dr. Reza Abbaschian), Mechanical Engineering

Undergraduate Papers:

1st Place Award: Cindy Brito (Advisor: Dr. Kawai Tam), Chemical Engineering
2nd Place Award: Pamela Jreij (Advisor: Victor Rodgers), Bioengineering
