Critical Materials Business and Technology Information 2019

4th Annual Critical Materials Council (CMC) Conference April 25-26 in Saratoga Springs, New York a must-attend for business and technology professionals concerned with global supply-chains for semiconductor manufacturing.

TECHCET will host the 4th annual Critical Materials Council (CMC) Conference April 25-26 at the Saratoga Hotel and Casino in Saratoga Springs, New York. At the CMC Conference, business visionaries and manufacturing technologists gather to address current and future materials challenges. The latest forecasts on market drivers including trade issues, along with technical issues facing the global materials supply-chain, will be shown. 

The public CMC Conference follows private CMC face-to-face meetings to be held April 23-24, 2019 at GlobalFoundries in Malta, New York. Themes are centered around the needs of the Critical Materials Council and the global IC fabrication industry. 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 CMC Conference this year will feature a keynote presentation on "International Supply-Chain Management Challenges," by Dr. John Pellerin, Deputy CTO and VP of Worldwide R&D of GlobalFoundries.

Other featured presentations include: 
  • Tim Yeakley, ESH Policy Manager, Texas Instruments, on "Global Materials Regulation Issues,"
  • Dr. Karl Robinson, Director of Process Engineering, IMEC, on "Materials Engineering in CMOS and Beyond-CMOS Applications,"
  • Dr. Bryan Rice, VP of Product Integration, Inpria Corp., on "EUV Photolithography Materials Integration,"
  • G. Dan Hutcheson, CEO, VLSI Research, on "Slowdown: When did it start? What drove it? and When will the recovery come?" and
  • Gus Richard, Managing Director, Northland Securities, on "Macroeconomics & Drivers Influencing the Electronics Industry."
Attendees from fabs, OEMs, and materials suppliers alike will have the opportunity to interact with the presenters and colleagues, to gain insights into best-practices of the entire supply-chain.
