CAMP’s Annual Technical Meeting
CAMP’s Annual Technical Meeting was held May 15 - 17, 2013, at the Gideon Putnam Resort in Saratoga Springs, New York. The objective of this meeting was to provide a forum for an exchange of ideas and information between university and industry researchers involved in fine particle processing and nanotechnology and related colloid and surface aspects as well as applications. It included representatives of Industry, University, and New York State Economic Development Organizations.
Wednesday’s keynote speaker was Dr. Vivek Singh (Intel Fellow, Technology & Manufacturing Group Director, Computational Lithography of Intel). His talk was titled “Computational Lithography: Moore Bang for your Buck.” Two speakers were featured on Thursday evening. Deputy Secretary for Economic Development Leecia Eve spoke before dinner about “Igniting New York’s Innovation Economy.” The after dinner keynote speaker was Dr. Gary Patton (IBM Vice President & IEEE Fellow, Semiconductor Research & Development Center, IBM Systems and Technology Group). His talk was titled “Semiconductor Technology: Trends, Challenges, & Opportunities.”
This successful meeting was well attended and had many excellent poster presentations on CAMP research. The posters were judged in three categories: most attractive, most creative, and best overall. Certificates and ribbons were awarded to the first, second, and third place winners of each category. The certificates were presented by Clarkson University President Anthony Collins and the ribbons were presented by Distinguished University Professor and CAMP Director S.V. Babu. Details of the meeting will be included in CAMP’s Annual Report (September 2013) Newsletter.
