Sunday Program Reviews

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

Sunday Program Reviews will run concurrently with the traditional technical tutorials and feature research and/or manufacturing programs of substantial size, as well as multiple technical focal areas (e.g. materials development as well as devices).  It is anticipated that programs selected for a summary presentation in this session will 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.
