ICPT 2024 - International Conference on Planarization/ CMP Technology

The 19th International Conference on Planarization/CMP Technology 2024 - ICPT2024 - will be held in Wiesbaden, Germany. The European CMP User Groups kindly invite you to this amazing health resort city – one of Germany’s hidden champions. Following European venues such as Dresden, Grenoble and Leuven, we are proud to organize the ICPT Conference 2024 again in Europe, and hope that it will be a wonderful event.

Chemical Mechanical Planarization/Polishing (CMP), one of the most important processes in the manufacturing of semiconductor devices, has been developed and improved continuously year after year, it has maintained its position in related industries, and has increased its application areas. From the user’s point of view, technical demand is growing more and more, and fields of application beyond the semiconductor sector are increasing equally.

ICPT as an international symposium for Planarization/CMP offers magnificent opportunities for discussions on technologies including FEOL and BEOL CMP, 3D/TSV, Fundamentals of CMP, Polishing Processes, Consumables, Equipment, Green Devices, New Applications, Metrology, Cleaning, Defect Control, Process Control, CMP Alternatives, SiC, GaN, Sapphire and Diamond. The conference provides a place where researchers and engineers alike meet, discuss and share experiences in their field of knowledge. Enthusiastic presentations and discussions are expected to be on an equal footing, flat like the surface of wafer, no matter from which country or organization presenters come, which position they hold or in which technology area they have gained experience or are experts.

The organizing committee would like the ICPT2024 Conference to offer good opportunities for every attendee to learn something new or expand their networks through discussions or information exchange in the field of CMP.

Welcome to ICPT 2024 in Wiesbaden!
