III. Emerging Materials Challenges

Featuring Speakers from the Materials Supply Chain: IC Fab Technologists, Materials
Suppliers, Equipment Suppliers, Market Analysts

The Critical Materials Conference is a 2 day event, April 26-27 in Phoenix, AZ, providing actionable information on materials and supply-chains for current and future semiconductor manufacturing. Business drives the world, but technology enables semiconductor business, so we must understand the dynamics of how materials and technologies enable the scaling of devices in IC fabs. Conference speakers will provide information on critical materials used in HVM fabs, while also looking at manufacturing integration issues associated with new materials needed for future devices. Notable speakers from leading semiconductor fabricators, materials companies, and leading market research firms will provide insights on this ever changing area of semiconductor process materials.

While executive conferences typically focus on the “what” and “why” of materials technologies, this conference will discuss “how” new materials can be controllably, safely, and cost-effectively used in fabs. The Conference will also include market data to validate “when” materials will be needed. Attendees from fabs, OEMs, and materials suppliers will have the opportunity to interact with the presenters and colleagues, to gain insights into best-practices of the entire supply-chain.

Call for papers first consideration deadline is December 31, 2017. Please submit your abstract to Ed Korczynski by clicking here.
