International Conference on Planarization/CMP Technology Draws Global CMP Community, End Users from Chip Industry, Suppliers and Research Institutes
GRENOBLE, France – Oct. 11, 2012 –, Laurent Malier, CEO of CEA-Leti and Daniel Bensahel, silicon technology R&D director at STMicroelectronics, will present keynote addresses on future strategies in Microsystems and microelectronics during ICPT 2012 at the Minatec Conference Center in Grenoble, France, Oct. 15-17.
ICPT, the International Conference on Planarization/CMP Technology, is the annual high-level conference covering all aspects of chemical-mechanical polishing (CMP). It brings together the CMP community, end users from the semiconductor industry, suppliers and research institutes from around the world to exchange information and state-of-the-art research in CMP technology.
Bensahel will address “CMOS Evolutions and New Challenges” at 9:10 a.m. Monday, Oct. 15, and Malier will present “Disruptive Planar & 3D Solutions for Energy Efficiency” in his keynote at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.
In addition, conference sessions will be opened by experts from major semiconductor companies and research institutes, including:
- Mansour Moinpour, Intel Corporation
- Jinok Moon, Samsung Electronics
- Yongsik Moon, GlobalFoundries
- Katia Devriendt and Patrick Ong, Imec
- Keiichi Kimura, Kyushu Institute of Technology, and
- Xin-Ping Qu, Fudan University of Shanghai
The program includes 32 presentations on topics such as front-end CMP processes for 28nm and beyond, challenges in CMP processes for 14nm logic technology, step-height reduction of 28nm ceria-particle slurry depending on pad surface profile, interaction of surface chemistry and adsorption behavior of CMP abrasives, new explanations of the material removal process in CMP, and CMP processes for future materials like Co and Mo.
The conference also will include two poster sessions to accommodate the large number of papers submitted, and exhibits of innovative CMP products available on the market. Founded by CMP user groups in Europe, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and the United States, the conference alternates its venue among members’ countries each year.
