The Electronic Materials Conference is Going Virtual!

Because the health and safety of our Electronic Materials community are our top priorities, we are pleased to announce that EMC 2020 will be held virtually this year, over the scheduled dates of June 24 to 26, 2020. Instructions for both oral and poster presenters are forthcoming, as we anticipate a combination of live streaming and prerecorded presentations. We are excited to move forward with this year’s Conference despite travel restrictions and social distancing requirements, and hope you’ll plan to join us! We have a strong community, and we thank those volunteers who have stepped forward to make this happen. Please check back to this website for continued updates.

The Electronic Materials Conference (EMC) is the premier annual forum on the preparation, characterization and use of electronic materials. This year’s virtual event will feature a plenary session, topical sessions, a poster session and more.

EMC is coordinated with the Device Research Conference (DRC), which will be held during the same week, from June 21-24. This recognizes the strong interaction between device and electronic materials research and provides fruitful exchange of information between attendees of both Conferences.
