Dear All, The SRC/Sematech

Dear All,

The SRC/Sematech Engineering Research Center for Environmentally Benign Semiconductor Manufacturing (ERC) is pleased to announce an exciting new collaborative extension to its biweekly TeleSeminar offering. This capability is made possible through a partnership with SemiNeedle, an online community for semiconductor professionals.

Starting with the July 10, 2008 presentation, everyone interested in our seminars will access the abstract and the presentation material at SemiNeedle. Attendees will also be able to initiate inquiries and discussions, anonymously if so desired, and continue conversations with the presenter and others attending the presentation during and after the event.

This capability greatly complements our TeleSeminar series by providing a much needed platform for continued discussion on presented topics beyond our limited one hour teleconference session. It also extends the reach of the program to those across the globe who cannot easily access the live seminar but would like to review the presentation and ask questions.

While at the SemiNeedle seminar site, you might also want to explore other aspects of the SemiNeedle community. Given its focus on all things semiconductor, you might find value in the community in addition to the TeleSeminar.

I hope that you'll take advantage of our enhancements and will feel free to engage, anonymously if preferred, and let attendees know of your thoughts and perspectives.

Best Regards,

Farhang Shadman
Director, SRC/Sematech ERC
