Users Group Meeting  /  November 10, 2022  -  November 11, 2022


The next European CMP and WET users group meeting will be held in Amsterdam on November 10-11, 2022. The meeting will be held in-person, so far we do not consider any hybrid formats. Once we secured the event venue with support of our partner SPS Europe, more details will follow.“

Sponsors who want to support us are very welcome.


Target groups are all individuals who employ CMP and use it for production, who manufacture equipment and materials for CMP or who are active in CMP-related R&D.

Since 1998 the CMP Users Meetings are held in regular intervals. The fall meetings are organized in timely connection with Semicon Europa and have developed into an international event. The spring meetings take place at changing locations and are intended as a European forum for CMP information exchange. The conference language of the meeting is English.

The workshops offer opportunities to meet other CMP users and discuss CMP related topics with experts. Short contributions or longer presentations cover new developments in equipment, materials, processes, applications, etc. or inform about CMP-related subjects like measurement, cleaning, media distribution, waste disposal, etc.. Those interested in giving contributions are requested to contact the organizers. Submissions are considered in the order of arrival.

Wet chemical processes like wet etching, wet cleaning and electroplating furtheron play an important role in the manufacturing of microelectronic and MEMS devices. Due to the large overlap with CMP, it has been decided to hold meetings of the Wet Users Group in a tight connection to the CMP Users' Meetings. Therefore, invitations to both meetings will be sent out together and future CMP Users' Meetings will be introduced by a Wet Users' Meeting the day before.
