ICPT 2022 Conference Highlights

Industry experts collaborate on new and coming science for CMP

San Diego, CA, October 6, 2022:  TECHCET—the electronic materials advisory firm providing business and technology information— attended The International Conference on Planarization Technology (ICPT) last week, September 27-29, at the historic Benson hotel, in Portland, Oregon. “The conference is a perfect mix of university and industry experts coming together to understand and advance the science and process of CMP,” commented Diane Scott, Ph.D., TECHCET’s CMC Director. For the first time, this conference was a hybrid event with some 300 live attendees and close to 100 online attendees. Each afternoon, poster sessions filled the conference rooms with great scientific insight and conversations. Talks and posters encompassed innovative CMP pads designs, SiC CMP, surface modeling, brushes, particle characterization and more.

This year, ICPT gave out two awards to recognize pioneers in this industry. The ICPT Outstanding Achievement Award was given to Dr. Toshiro Doi Professor Emeritus of Kyleshu University and Saitama University for his development of the Pac-Rim conference back in 2004, which has now evolved into this ICPT. The second achievement award was presented to Dr. Duane Boning, Professor at MIT. Dr. Boning led the research into pattern density sensitivity in CMP. Dr. Robert Rhoades announced the 2023 ICPT will be held in Japan.
