About SPCC

The Surface Preparation and Cleaning Conference (SPCC) is the world’s largest conference dedicated to cleaning and preparation. SPCC was managed by Sematech from 2002 – 2014, and taken over by Linx Consulting in 2015. SPCC 2016 was a resounding success with excellent attendance and world-class technical papers. Linx Consulting will be managing SPCC once again in 2017, expanding the conference to include the Post CMP Conference as a complement conference to SPCC.

Linx is breathing new life into the SPCC, while continuing to advance surface preparation and cleaning technologies around the world. As the premier electronic materials consultant to the semiconductor industry, Linx is involved in many semiconductor industry events, including the Strategic Materials Conference in Half Moon Bay and CMPG Users Group at Semicon West.

SPCC started nearly 20 years ago in Austin, and we are returning to the town where many participating companies already have a presence.  Austin is justly renowned as the entertainment center of Texas.  Sixth Street is famous for its clubs and bars, and the city offers multiple options for music and entertainment.

SPCC 2017 will be held at the AT&T Executive Conference Center in Austin. The conference center offers excellent facilities in a secluded academic environment a few blocks from downtown Austin.  The center also offers on-site accommodation, as well as a choice of many downtown hotels within a short walk.
