-- Strategic market and business overviews -- Materials advancements for flexible microelectronics -- Manufacturing on flexible substrates (equipment and process technology) -- Display technologies applicable to flexible substrates -- Flexible microelectronic backplane technologies -- Applications and products for flexible microelectronics

New to the conference format is a poster session for university students, which will run all three days during the session breaks, allowing attendees to learn about development activities at leading universities. It also serves as an opportunity for companies to recruit promising students, while also allowing students to identify and pursue potential employment avenues.

The conference will also feature the recent advancements made by the Binghamton University-led Center for Advanced Microelectronics Manufacturing (CAMM), which is looking at speeding microelectronics manufacturing research and development in a roll-to-roll (R2R) format. In addition, the U.S. Army-funded Flexible Display Center (FDC) at Arizona State University will update attendees on the progress it has made on process development and pilot production of flexible backplanes and displays for U.S. Army platforms and, eventually, commercial applications.

The upcoming USDC conference returns to the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort, adjacent to the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. With record attendance anticipated, USDC recommends registering early before space fills up.
