TMS Logo2000 Electronic Materials Conference: Student Information

June 21-23, 2000 · 42ND ELECTRONIC MATERIALS CONFERENCE · Denver, Colorado

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.


Three to five $500 student awards are given annually by the Electronic Materials Committee for the best presentations by students at the conference. Student papers will be judged on both scientific content and presentation at the Electronic Materials Conference.

Awards will be presented to the 1999 student winners during the plenary session on Wednesday, June 21, in the Sturm Auditorium.
