Here's what attendees said about ASMC 2011:

“I found the experience of attending ASMC 2011 was good, as the presentations were relevant to my area of interest. I have subsequently integrated some of the ideas and knowledge that I obtained from this conference into my work. I enjoyed the fact that there was no trade show associated with the conference, allowing for more networking opportunities. The networking functions were very enjoyable and well managed.”
Heather White, Staff Yield and Defect Engineer, Technical Development Group, International Rectifier
