Waves of change in advanced electronics materials to be explored at SEMI Strategic Materials Conference 2013

The latest trends, challenges and business opportunities in advanced materials for semiconductors, MEMs, power devices, storage, and other electronic devices will be addressed at the 2013 SEMI Strategic Materials Conference (SMC), to be held on October 16-17 at the Santa Clara Marriott in Silicon Valley, California. Electronic device manufacturers, materials suppliers, market analysts, and other industry experts will speak and participate in the only executive conference in the world dedicated to advanced electronic materials.  Last year’s conference sold out and attendees are encouraged to register early to ensure participation.

Organized by the Chemical and Gas Manufacturers Group (CGMG), a SEMI Special Interest Group comprised of leading manufacturers, producers, packagers and distributors of chemicals and gases used in the microelectronics industry, SMC offers presentations from leading market analysts, device manufacturers, industry consortiums, top suppliers and academic researchers, in combination with an innovative interactive format designed to facilitate business contacts and networking. SMC also provides valuable forecasting information, helps accelerate advanced materials markets, and serves as a forum for collaboration among all sectors of the advanced materials supply chain. Over 94 percent of the attendees at last year’s conference said SMC provided information useful to their jobs and provided valuable business contacts.

Featured topics for the two-day conference will include:

  • New materials and processes for next generation memory
  • Material metrology and characterization challenges at leading-edge nodes
  • Graphene and other carbon-based materials for semiconductor, storage, and industrial applications
  • Materials challenges for MEMS devices
  • Wafer processing and packaging materials outlook
  • The coming revolution in wide bandgap semiconductors
  • Latest advances in printed, large area and flexible electronics

The Strategic Materials Conference has provided valuable information and networking opportunities to materials and electronics industry professionals since 1995. Held this year at the Santa Clara Marriott in the heart of Silicon Valley, the event provides critical forecasting, emerging market, and materials trends for the microelectronics industry.
