IMAT 2020 @ The Huntington Convention Center
Sep 14 – Sep 17 all-day
IMAT 2020 @ The Huntington Convention Center | Cleveland | Ohio | United States

ASM is the only society that unites different market segments that cross the entire materials world.

Planning is well underway for IMAT 2020, ASM’s re-imagined Annual Meeting. A diverse group of materials experts, including the ASM Programming Committees, AeroMat Committee, and all six of ASM’s Affiliate Societies, are heavily involved in building the technical symposiums, which will have a strong focus on application-oriented, real-world technologies that can be put to use today.

  • No other conference has integrated applied materials technologies and applications with economics, environmental issues and enabling digital technologies
  • The focus on economics and business will draw industry in a way that traditional technical conferences do not
  • Environmental issues have the attention of the new generation of materials engineers, who want to ensure we have a safe and healthy planet to live on
  • Digital technologies, including additive manufacturing, robotics and the digital thread are moving forward, and demanding attention from the chemistry-processing-microstructure-properties paradigm to improve understanding and speed implementation
  • ASM is STRONGER TOGETHER. ASM is the only society that unites different market segments that cross the entire materials world and connects industry, academia and government to solve global materials challenges.

What Can You Expect?

  • Over 3,000 attendees
  • Over 600 technical presentations, keynotes, panel discussions
  • Over 250 exhibitors
  • More than 300 students interested in materials engineering for recruitment program
  • 4 days of technical programming

The Rise of MEMS and 3D Failure Analysis

MEMS (Microelectromechanical Systems) sense physical phenomena and trigger action, and they have enabled a slew of useful, essential, and fun applications—the most common of which are found in smart phones, cars, printers, and wearables—but the application space keeps growing as costs decrease and new MEMS sensors are developed. Advances in packaging technologies, including wafer bonding, 3D (TSV/heterogeneous) integration, and die stacking have been essential in helping MEMS sensors proliferate. Where are MEMS going—new sensors, new applications, new fabrication and packaging processes? What challenges are created for failure analysis in packaging and new applications?
