ISSM 2010 : International Symposium on Semiconductor Manufacturing
Call For Papers
Since its start in 1992 in Japan, ISSM has provided unique opportunities to share semiconductor manufacturing technology "best practices" for the benefit of professionals worldwide. At the symposium, semiconductor manufacturing professionals gather together to seriously discuss presented technologies developed because of the world wide need for semiconductor manufacturing technology advancement. The 18th annual ISSM will be held in Tokyo, Japan.
It is crucial to re-examine semiconductor manufacturing in terms of fundamental principles in order to continue scaling beyond the 32nm/22nm nodes. In addition, manufacturing technologies for preserving the earth's environment have become new challenges.
These manufacturing technology challenges show the need for drastic revolutionary thought and stronger collaborative efforts to find solutions to the pre-competitive challenges.
The ISSM 2010 will feature keynote speeches by world leading speakers, timely and highlighted topics in addition to the ISSM areas of interests, and networking sessions focusing on equipment/materials/software/services with suppliers exhibits. ISSM contributes to the continued growth of the semiconductor industry through its infrastructure for networking, discussion, and information sharing among the world's professionals. We invite you to share your professional experiences at the Eighteenth International Symposium on Semiconductor Manufacturing.
