The Electronic Materials Conference (EMC) is the premier annual forum on the preparation, characterization and use of electronic materials. This year’s event will feature a plenary session, topical sessions, a poster session and more.

EMC is coordinated with the Device Research Conference (DRC), which will be held during the same week, from June 20-23. This recognizes the strong interaction between device and electronic materials research and provides fruitful exchange of information between attendees of both Conferences.

EMC leadership recognizes the global pandemic may have long-lasting effects on face-to-face meetings. We anticipate seeing you in Santa Barbara, but be assured we will continue to comply with COVID-19 guidelines in 2021. A virtual or hybrid option will be considered if we find it to be the best—and safest—path forward. In the meantime, please visit this website regularly for the most up-to-date information on EMC 2021.
