The AMFA workshop is a forum developed to encourage cross-pollination of ideas across disciplines that use similar techniques and have similar goals — the characterization and resolution of phenomena and problems. We invite high-quality speakers to discuss leading edge topics, in a "Gordon Conference" extended presentation format where we strongly encourage and expect audience participation. The AMFA workshop has a mixture of academic, industry and vendor presentations to generate thoughtful, insightful discussion and discovery. We deliberately craft a broad, material and failure analysis forum so that attendees can come to learn about and exchange ideas on recent developments in the semiconductor, nanomaterial and biological characterization worlds.
