Advancing Semiconductor Manufacturing Excellence

ASMC is the leading international technical conference for discussing solutions that improve the collective manufacturing expertise of the semiconductor industry. Solving the challenges presented by semiconductor manufacturing is a combined effort by device makers, equipment and materials suppliers, and academics. ASMC provides an unparalleled platform for semiconductor professionals to network and learn the latest in the practical application of advanced manufacturing strategies and methodologies. Technical presentations at ASMC highlight industry innovations with specific results and are published by IEEE, with select manuscripts republished in the ASMC Special Section of IEEE Transactions on Semiconductor Manufacturing.

Author Kit

The ASMC Committee is composed of industry professionals representing the microelectronics supply-chain. All papers presented at the conference are peer-reviewed by the ASMC Technical Committee. ASMC 2021 is co-chaired by Ishtiaq Ahsan, PhD of IBM Research and Alexa Greer of KLA.


ASMC 2020 hosted over 300 attendees which included:

  • Academia
  • Chief Technology Officers
  • Fab Managers

Women in Semiconductors—WiS 2021

We look forward to reuniting with Women in Semiconductors in 2022. In the meantime, join WiS online on May 3, 2021 for an interactive exploration and discussion on strengthening the roles of women in hybrid and remote work environments. Everyone managing teams and/or experiencing the challenges and opportunities will benefit from the fresh thinking and best practices that the Women in Semiconductor program is known for.
