IEEE/SEMI Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing Conference Set for July 2010 in San Francisco

The IEEE/SEMI Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing Conference (ASMC) has a new venue. Starting with this year's event, ASMC — which takes place July 11-13 in San Francisco, California — will be held in conjunction with SEMICON West, the flagship annual exposition for the global semiconductor industry.

ASMC is the premier international technical conference serving the semiconductor industry, providing the venue and opportunity for technical managers, engineers, and other industry professionals to learn, network, and share knowledge on the latest best practices and concepts for semiconductor manufacturing. Each year, presentations at ASMC highlights innovations in semiconductor manufacturing processing, connecting technologists with ideas and information that can have an immediate impact in the lab and the fab. Conference details are located at

The co-location with SEMICON West 2010 gives conference attendees additional access to new technologies and products for semiconductor manufacturing, as well as to a growing area of related microelectronics including LEDs/solid state lighting, printed and flexible electronics, MEMS, and photovoltaics. ASMC attendees will have free access to the SEMICON West exhibit halls, including sessions at the TechXPOT, TechSITE, and Extreme Electronics presentation stages on the show floor.
