IEMT Symposium Success at Semicon West
The 29th International Electronics Manufacturing Technology
(IEMT) Symposium was
held in San Jose, CA, in July 14-16, 2004, during Semicon West week.
Co-sponsored by IEEE, the Components, Packaging and Manufacturing Technology
(CPMT) Society, and SEMI, the Symposium provided an important venue for
significant work in various areas of electronics manufacturing technologies.
Topics covered this year included: how to meet process challenges for the 90 nm
node, latest trends in final manufacturing, latest development in advanced
packaging, materials, design for test, and reliability.
Hosting the IEMT in conjunction with Semicon West also provided
opportunities for networking in a large trade show environment. Next year,
along with Semicon West, IEMT will move to the Moscone Center in San Francisco,
CA. A Call For Papers will be issued in the near future. Keep those papers
coming! For the Call for Papers, see www.cpmt.org/iemt/
