IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON APPLIED SUPERCONDUCTIVITY, VOL. 24,NO. 4, AUGUST 2014 0002101
THE International Superconductive Electronics Conference
(ISEC) is a biennial meeting whose location has moved
between Japan, Europe, and USA. The original ISEC was held
in Tokyo, Japan, in 1987. Another Tokyo meeting in 1989
was followed by meetings in Glasgow (U.K., 1991), Boulder
(USA, 1993), Nagoya (Japan, 1995), Berlin (Germany, 1997),
Berkeley (USA, 1999), Osaka (Japan, 2001), Sydney (Australia,
2003), Noordwijkerhout (The Netherlands, 2005), Washington,
DC (USA, 2007), and Fukuoka (Japan, 2009). In 2011, ISEC
was an integral part of the Superconductivity Centennial
Conference (SCC 2011) in The Hague (The Netherlands).
The 14th ISEC (ISEC 2013) was held in Cambridge, MA,
USA, from July 7–11, 2013. For the ﬁrst time, ISEC was
held as an IEEE conference, sponsored by the IEEE Council
on Superconductivity. ISEC 2013 covered rapidly developing
areas, including SQUIDs, SQUID array circuits and systems,
mixed-signal circuits, energy-efﬁcient digital electronics, mem-
ory, quantum information processing, detectors, metamaterials,
superconducting spintronics, and novel devices.

Selected presenters at ISEC 2013 were invited to submit
more extensive papers for this Special Issue of the IEE E
TRANSACTIONS ON APPLIED SUPERCONDUCTIVITY.The
16 papers in this volume well-represent the spectrum of topics
covered in the ISEC meeting of July 2013.
