Submit abstracts by February 15th for May 11-12 event in Dallas, Texas
San Diego, CA, January 09: TECHCET CA—the advisory service firm providing electronics materials information—and the Critical Materials Council (CMC) of semiconductor fabricators announce a Call For Papers (CFP) to be presented at the next CMC Conference to be held May 11-12, 2017 in Dallas, Texas. Building on the success of the first CMC Conference held last May in Portland (), the 2017 event will provide a structured framework to catalyze the flow of actionable technical and supply-chain information related to critical materials.
Following the annual members-only CMC meeting to be held May 9-10, 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:
• Global Issues & the Supply Chain,
• Immediate Challenges of Materials & Manufacturing, and
• Emerging Materials Challenges.
To submit a paper for consideration, please send a 1-page abstract focusing on critical materials supply dynamics by February 15, 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On behalf of the Conference Committee,
Lita Shon-Roy, Jonas Sundqvist, Ed Korczynski
