MASM 2015 Call for Papers
11th International Conference on Modeling and Analysis of Semiconductor Manufacturing (MASM) 2015
Call for Papers
December 6-9, Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa
Huntington Beach, California, USA
The 2015 International Conference on Modeling and Analysis of Semiconductor Manufacturing (MASM) aims to again be a forum for the exchange of ideas and best practices between researchers and practitioners from around the world involved in modeling and analysis of high-tech manufacturing systems. We are convinced of the worth and importance of the continuation of the MASM events held in Tempe, Arizona in 2000 and 2002, Singapore in 2005, Miami, Florida in 2008, Austin, Texas in 2009, Baltimore, Maryland in 2010, Phoenix, Arizona in 2011, Berlin in 2012, Washington, DC in 2013 and Savannah, Georgia in 2014.
The MASM 2015 conference will be fully contained within the Winter Simulation Conference 2015 (WSC 2015), the leading conference in discrete event simulation. WSC 2015 features a comprehensive program ranging from introductory tutorials to state-of-the-art research and practice. WSC 2015 will take place in Huntington Beach, CA, USA. All attendees of the MASM conference will register for WSC 2015 at the same cost. All participants of WSC 2015 can attend MASM 2015 sessions.
We are looking for high-quality research at all levels of semiconductor manufacturing. At the operational level, improved equipment and process control and optimized scheduling and transportation policies must be studied. At the tactical level, better capacity planning and qualification management are expected. At the strategic level, demand planning, factory economics and supply chain efficiency must be improved to support the business. Moreover, better integration of decisions taken at different decisions levels is becoming a must. These various goals will be attained through new advanced control and statistical methods, computing techniques and operations research methods. We invite participants to present on all topics related to modeling and analysis that will help address these challenges. While the MASM conference is mostly focused on the current semiconductor industry state-of-the-art, neither presenters nor attendees need to be in the IC industry to participate. We are interested in any methodologies, research, and/or applications from other related industries such as TFT-LCD, flexible displays, bio-chip, solid state lighting (LED) and photovoltaic (PV) that might also share or want to share common and new practices.
The conference includes tutorials and related software demonstrations within the Winter Simulation Conference 2015. A broad range of papers is sought, including theoretical developments, applied research, and case studies. Interested individuals within academia, government agencies, equipment suppliers, manufacturers, students, contractors, and other interested parties are encouraged to participate.
John Fowler is the MASM Keynote Speaker. Professor Fowler is the Motorola Professor and Chair of the Supply Chain Management department at Arizona State University, Tempe AZ. He has published over 100 journal articles and over 100 conference papers in discrete event simulation, deterministic scheduling, and multi-criteria decision making, among others areas. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE). Professor Fowler was the Founding Chair of the first MASM Conference in 2000.
