CALL FOR PAPERS





SEVENTH INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON PARTICLES ON SURFACES: DETECTION, ADHESION AND REMOVAL

To be held June 19-21, 2000; Robert Treat Hotel; Newark, NJ

This will be the seventh event in the series of symposia on particles on surfaces initiated as part of the Fine Particle Society meeting in 1986. Particles are yield detractors in the manufacturing of sophisticated and sensitive electronic components and are very undesirable in many other technologies. Contamination of optical surfaces and shorting of microelectronic circuits by conducting particles, among other concerns, underscore the importance of particle detection, adhesion and removal. On the other hand, however, in certain instances particle adhesion to surfaces is necessary. The purpose of this symposium is to address the vast ramifications of particles on solid surfaces by bringing together specialists in many allied fields to discuss their latest findings and to identify areas for further investigation. Various types of substrates and particles --metals, oxides, glass, and polymers-- will be covered. The technical program will comprise both invited and contributed papers ranging from topical overviews to original research and industrial applications.



The symposium will emphasize the following topics:



This symposium is being organized under the direction of Dr. K. L. Mittal, Editor, Journal of Adhesion Science and Technology by MST Conferences, LLC.
