The ASMC 2018 Call for Papers is now closed. Please refer to the Author Kit for 'Late Breaking' news.

ASMC is the leading international technical conference for exploring solutions to improve the collective micro-electronics manufacturing expertise. The conference, with technical sponsorship from IEEE EDS and CPMT provides an unparalleled platform for semiconductor professionals to network and learn the latest information in the practical application of advanced manufacturing strategies and methodologies.  ASMC 2018 will address the following topics:

  • AM: Advanced Metrology
  • AEPM: Advanced Equipment Processes and Materials
  • AP/DFM: Advanced Patterning / Design for Manufacturability
  • APC: Advanced Process Control
  • CFM: Contamination Free Manufacturing
  • DM: Big Data Management and Mining
  • DI: Defect Inspection and Reduction
  • DP: Discrete and Power Devices
  • ET/ ID: Enabling Technologies and Innovative Devices
  • ER: Equipment Reliability and Productivity Enhancements
  • FA: Factory Automation
  • FE: The Fabless Experience
  • GF: Green Factory
  • IE: Industrial Engineering
  • LM: Lean Manufacturing
  • MJ:  MOL and Junction Interfaces
  • SM: Smart Manufacturing
  • YE: Yield Enhancement/Learning
  • YM: Yield Methodologies
  • 3D/TSV: Packaging and Through Silicon Via









The ASMC 2018 agenda is developed by a technical committee representing a large cross section of the device, equipment/materials industry, and academia. Technical presentations are a result of an industry-wide call for papers, and accepted abstracts reflect manufacturing issues which are significant and current. Select ASMC manuscripts are republished in a Special Section of the IEEE Transactions on Semiconductor Manufacturing.   ASMC 2018 will include the Women in Semiconductors (WiS). Thank you to all who participated in ASMC 2017.
