38th Annual Northern California Electronic Materials Symposium

TMS Logo


The Electronic Materials Symposium is an inter-disciplinary conference that presents a broad spectrum of expert views on problems at the intersection of electronic materials and devices. The one-day symposium seeks to inform participants about challenges that excite today's materials scientists through a series of invited talks by experts in their respective fields.

The 38th  Annual Northern California Electronic Materials Symposium, co-sponsored by TMS and IEEE Electron Device Society, Northern California Chapter, will be held at Techmart Network Meeting Center in Santa Clara on Friday, April 16, 2010. The program features presentations on advanced electronic materials processing techniques and devices, and analytical techniques by outstanding speakers who have made significant contributions to their respective fields. Registration will begin at 8:00 am.

The program for 2010 is in preparation. The following speakers have confirmed. Please see the program for more details.
