43rd Electronic Materials Conference (EMC) sponsored
by the Electronic Materials Committee of TMS will
be held at the University of Notre
Dame, Notre Dame, Indiana, from Wednesday, June 27 through Friday, June
29, 2001. The conference provides a forum for topics of current interest and
significance on the area of 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 area are solicited.
The EMC is again being coordinated with the Device Research Conference (DRC) of IEEE, which will be held at the same location, Monday, June 25 through Wednesday, June 27, 2001. This coordination is made in recognition of the strong interaction between electronic materials and device research and should provide for maximum exchange of information between attendees of both conferences.
A leading Catholic research university, Notre
Dame stands among the nation’s top 20 universities in terms of both academics
and endowment. The university is organized into four undergraduate colleges—arts
and letters, science, engineering, and business—the Graduate School, the Law
School, and the School of Architecture. The combination of groundbreaking research
and a long tradition of excellence in undergraduate and graduate education has
attracted world-class teachers and scholars to the university’s 729- member
teaching-and-research faculty. The total student population of about 10,700
men and women is drawn from all 50 states and some 88 foreign countries and
includes 1,500 graduate students and 1,150 professional students. Substantial
new investments in a wide range of academic programs, institutes, centers, and
major facilities have marked the past several years at Notre
Dame. Founded in 1842 by a priest of the Congregation of Holy Cross, Notre
Dame is located north of the city of South Bend, Indiana, and about 90 miles
southeast of Chicago. Its 1,250-acre-campus contains two lakes and 104 buildings
with an insured replacement value of more than $875 million. The university’s
Main Building with its famed Golden Dome is among the most widely known university
landmarks in the world.
