CMC² 2016 Call for Papers & Registration, May 5-6, Hillsboro, Oregon USA

 
CMC² 2016 Call for Papers
The Critical Materials Council (CMC) and TECHCET have issued a call for papers to be presented at the CMC Conference to be held May 5-6, 2016 in Hillsboro, Oregon, USA. Semiconductor manufacturing industry experts from IDMs, OEMS, and materials suppliers will gather to discuss actionable information on critical materials used in HVM fabs surrounding the theme of "Critical Materials for Device Driven Scaling", while also looking at issues associated with new materials needed for future devices. Tim G. Hendry, Vice President, Technology & Manufacturing and Group Director of Fab Materials, Intel Corp., will provide the keynote address.
Following the annual members-only Critical Materials Council meeting to be held May 3-4, the 2016 CMC Conference is open to the public. Business drives our world, but technology enables the profitable business of manufacturing new devices in IC fabs, and new devices need new materials. In addition to panel discussions, presentation sessions will focus on the following topics:
I. Semiconductor Market Briefing: application-specific demands for devices and materials
II. Tracking the Supply Chain down to Earth, Wind, and Fire: manufacturing and supply chain 
III. Emerging Materials Evolutions: alternate logic channels and new memory switches, and
IV. Materials Revolutions: beyond silicon CMOS.

To submit a paper for consideration, please send a 1-page abstract focusing on critical materials supply dynamics by March 4, 2016 to cmcinfo@techcet.com.
