The Electronic Materials Symposium is an inter-disciplinary conference that presents a broad spectrum of expert views on problems at the intersection of electronic materials and devices. The one-day symposium seeks to inform participants about challenges that excite today's materials scientists through a series of invited talks by experts in their respective fields.

The 45th Annual Northern California Electronic Materials Symposium, co-sponsored by TMS and IEEE Santa Clara Valley Section, will be held at Quadrus Conference Center in Palo Alto on Friday, May 5, 2017. The program features presentations on advanced electronic materials processing techniques and devices, and analytical techniques by outstanding speakers who have made significant contributions to their respective fields. Registration will begin at 8:00 am.

Confirmed speakers:

Prof. Dorian Liepmann, UC Berkeley (Bio-MEMS)

Prof. Mark Brongersma, Stanford University (Plasmonics and Metaphotonics)
