Sunday Program Reviews

The ICSCRM 2017 organizers were pleased to announce a new session, Sunday Program Reviews, that was held on Sunday, September 17, and highlighted selected collaborative programs advancing silicon carbide technology. 

Sunday Program Reviews ran concurrently with the traditional technical tutorials and featured research and/or manufacturing programs of substantial size, as well as multiple technical focal areas (e.g. materials development as well as devices).  It was anticipated that programs selected for a summary presentation in this session would incorporate performers from several entities, including academic, industry and government organizations, and feature programs that are either in a period of on-going performance or very recently completed at the time of the conference.
