EMC Logo

Sponsored by the Electronic Materials Committee of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS), the 42nd Electronic Materials Conference (EMC) will be held June 21-23, 2000, at the University of Denver in Denver, Colorado. The EMC is also being coordinated with the Device Research Conference of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), which will be held at the same location, June 19-21, 2000. This coordination recognizes the strong interaction between electronic materials and device research and should provide for a maximum exchange of information between attendees of both conferences.

The EMC will provide a forum for topics of current interest and significance in the areas related to the preparation and characterization of electronic materials. Individuals actively engaged or interested in electronic materials research and development are encouraged to attend this meeting, and papers in this general subject are solicited.


The University of Denver’s campus is located six miles south of down-town Denver and only 45 minutes from Denver International Airport.
