The Critical Materials Council (CMC) Conference is a 2 day event 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, and materials companies, as well as leading market research firms will provide insights on this ever changing area of semiconductor process materials and markets.

Keynote Presentation by

Hans Stork, Senior VP & CTO of ON Semiconductor
