March 12, 2014. The 25th Annual SEMI Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing Conference (ASMC 2014) will be held May 19-21 in Saratoga Springs, NY. The conference will feature 37 hours of technical presentations and more than 90 speakers covering all aspects of advanced semiconductor manufacturing.
This year’s event features a panel discussion on “25 Years of Semiconductor Manufacturing: Accomplishments, Current Challenges, Future Directions—From the Internet to the Internet of Things,” with panelists from SEMATECH, Rochester Institute of Technology, GLOBALFOUNDRIES, Qualcomm, and Applied Materials. Also featured will be s tutorial on directed self-assembly taught by Michael A. Guillorn, Ph.D., from the Nanofabrication and Electron Beam Lithography department at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, and a second tutorial, on Silicon Photonics, taught by Dr. Haisheng Rong, Intel.
Celebrating 25 years of manufacturing excellence in 2014, the SEMI Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing Conference provides a venue for industry professionals to network, learn, and share knowledge on new and best-method semiconductor manufacturing practices and concepts. The 2014 conference is co-chaired by Israel Ne'eman, Applied Materials, and Oliver Patterson, IBM Microelectronics. ASMC 2014 offers keynote talks by Dr. Been-Jon Woo from TSMC and Dean Freeman from Gartner.
The topical areas ASMC 2014 speakers and poster presenters will address include
- Advanced Equipment and Materials
- Advanced Metrology
- Advanced Patterning/Design for Manufacturing
- Advanced Process Control (APC)
