June 30-July 2, 1999 · 41ST ELECTRONIC MATERIALS CONFERENCE · Santa Barbara, California

EMC Logo
Sponsored by the Electronic Materials Committee of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS), the 41st Electronic Materials Conference (EMC) will be held June 30-July 2, 1999, at the University of California–Santa Barbara.


We are pleased to invite 1999 EMC attendees to reside on the seaside campus of UCSB. Santa Barbara is a summer resort area and accommodations can be difficult to secure. Therefore, early registration and reservations are essential. On-campus accommodations will be available on a first request basis. UCSB residence halls and dining facilities are located within a 5-10 minute walk from the meeting rooms. Residence hall accommodations are either single or double occupancy, with single rooms reserved on a first request basis. Lodging includes beds made on arrival day and daily room service with washcloth and towel change. Restroom and shower facilities are located on each floor. Phone lines are available in the EMC Residence Halls; you may bring your own phone or you can purchase an inexpensive phone at the University Book Store. Also, calling card accessible phones are within the Hall lobby. The Residence Hall cannot provide a wake-up service, so you may wish to bring an alarm clock as well.

Parking: UCSB parking is by permit only and is complimentary for those residing on-campus in the Residence Hall. When you arrive at UCSB you can receive directions and a temporary parking permit from the gate attendant by identifying yourself as a EMC attendee. This temporary permit will need to be replaced with the permit you will receive at the Residence Hall. Attendees residing off-campus may purchase a daily permit from the gate attendant for $5 or purchase a 4-day permit (Tuesday through Friday) for $12 at registration.

Recreation Center: The University has a Recreation Center which is open Monday through Saturday. Equipment includes racquetball and squash courts, weight training rooms, and three swimming pools. The cost of a Recreation Center pass is $3.50 per adult, per day. Passes can be purchased at the campus Conference Service Office or at the Conference Registration Desk. Consult with the Residence Hall desk attendant for hours. Those EMC participants residing on campus may also check out recreational equipment (volleyballs, basketballs, frisbees, billiard, and pingpong equipment) from the service desk by presenting your room key to the Desk Attendant. Goleta public beach is accessible by a short walk from the East Gate of the campus and is open from dawn to dusk. The University beach, east and south of the campus, is directly accessible from the residence halls.
