MTL Seminar Series, 2009-2010

MTL hosts a series of talks each semester known as the MTL Seminar Series. Speakers for the series are selected on the basis of their knowledge and competence in the areas of microelectronics research, manufacturing, or policy. The series is held on the MIT Campus during the academic year on Tuesdays at 4:00 pm. The seminar series is open to the public. A listing of recent seminars is also provided here.

Streaming videos of the series are available online exclusively to individuals whose companies are members of the Microsystems Industrial Group at MTL.
