UPDATE : CMC Conference Call for Papers, May 11-12 2017 Dallas, USA

CMC Conference Call for Papers

The Critical Materials Council (CMC) Conference Committee has issued a call for papers for presentations to be given at the CMC Conference to be held May 11-12, 2017 in Dallas, Texas, 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.  
Following the annual members-only Critical Materials Council meeting to be held earlier that week, the 2017 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. Global Issues & the Supply Chain
II. Immediate Challenges of Materials & Manufacturing
III. Emerging Materials Challenges
To submit a paper for consideration, please send a 1-page abstract focusing on critical materials supply dynamics by February 10, 2017 to cmcinfo@techcet.com.
Attendees will include industry experts handling supply-chains, business-development, R&D, and product management, as well as academics and analysts. The early-bird registration fee (before April 15th) for the CMC Conference is $350; the standard registration fee is $425 (after April 16th).  CMC member companies will be attending this meeting, as it is an important part of their membership.
