The IEEE Electron Devices Malaysia Chapter organized the 10th IEEE Regional Symposium on Micro and Nanoelectronics (IEEE-RSM2013) at the Primula Beach Hotel, Kuala Terengganu, Malaysia from the 19th to 21st August 2015. The conference was locally co-organized by Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin (UNISZA). This conference is organized by the ED Malaysia Chapter biannually as a forum for researchers from Malaysia and different parts of the world to share their research findings. RSM2015 had 97 contributed papers for oral presentation in different parallel sessions of Circuits, VLSI & Microwave, Materials & Process, Nanotechnology, MEMS & Microsensors, Materials & Devices and Photonics. More than 80 researchers from 13 different countries attended the conference. The conference opening ceremony as well as the gala dinner was held on the first day where it was officiated by Prof Dato’ Dr Burhanuddin Yeop Majlis who is the founder Chair of the conference and the Director of the Institute of Microengineering and Nanoelectronics (IMEN), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM).

The first day of the conference had two keynote speakers. Dr. Meyya Meyyapan  from NASA Ames Research Centre who delivered a talk entitled “Nanotechnology: Development of Practical Systems and Nano-Micro-Macro Integration”, which was followed by Prof. Dr. Sahbudin Shaari, from the Institute of Microengineering and Nanoelectronics (IMEN) UKM who delivered a speech entitled “Parallel Injection Current Modulation of Mach-Zehnder Interferometer Modulator on Silicon on Insulator”.

Keynote talks on the second day of the conference started with Prof. Dr. Hirofumi Tanaka, of Kyushu Institute of Technology, Japan delivering the speech entitled “Brain-like Signal Generating Electric Devices made of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotube and Nanoparticle Complex”. The second talk was by Dr. Hin Tze Yang from Lumileds  Malaysia who spoke on “The Future of Optoelectronics Packaging in High Data Rates Application”.
