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.

The campus is easily accessible from South Bend’s airport by a 10-minute taxi ride. Limousine (motor coach bus) service is provided by United Limo directly to and from the campus and both Chicago’s O’Hare and Midway Airports with ten trips daily. Buses leave the Bus/Shuttle Center at O’Hare and arrive on campus at the main gate on Notre Dame Avenue. Buses run on a schedule, and will not accommodate reservations. Seating is first-come-first-serve basis. On rare occasions, a bus will fill to capacity, but ordinarily this will not be the case. United Limo buses leave from Midway Airport between doors 3 and 4 (via Tri State Coach), from O’Hare International terminal #5 and from the O’Hare Bus Shuttle Center. A bus schedule is available on-line from the United Limo website.
