Workshop Announcement
FOURTH WORKSHOP ON INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS OF SCANNED
PROBE MICROSCOPY

(Updates will be posted at:    http://www.nist.gov/mel/div821/iaspm4.htm)

May 6-8 1997
National Institute of Standards and Technology
Gaithersburg, MD

Sponsored by: NIST, SEMATECH, ASTM E-42, The American Vacuum Society*
*Nanometer-scale Science & Technology Division
 
ORGANIZING COMMITTEE 
John Dagata, NIST - Gaithersburg
Rich Colton, Naval Research Laboratory
Alain Diebold, SEMATECH
Ken Shih, University of Texas at Austin

PROGRAM COMMITTEE
Jason Schneir, Tencor Instruments; John Moreland, NIST-Boulder; Greg Meyers,
Dow Chemical; Lori Goldner, NIST-Gaithersburg; Herschel Marchman, Texas
Instruments.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: This meeting explores recent progress toward meeting
standardization and development needs in scanned probe microscopy relevant
to industrial applications.  Summary reports on the first two IASPM
workshops are available as NISTIR #5550 (December 1994) and NIST #5752 (
November 1995).  A report for the third workshop is in preparation.

Sessions will present industry overviews of SPM applications in
Semiconductor, Polymers & Coatings, and Magnetic Data Storage areas.
Highlights include talks on critical dimension metrology,
chemical-mechanical planarization, magnetic and optical disk tribology,
quantitative aspects of magnetic, electrical, and optical imaging modes,
progress on tip modeling, and novel developments in the use of SPMs in
biology and device fabrication.

POSTER PRESENTATIONS: Oral presentations will be short and narrowly focused.
Poster  sessions are an effective means for promoting information exchange
and informal discussion among workshop participants. Everyone  attending the
meeting is strongly encouraged to contribute a poster  presentation on any
relevant SPM or related topic. It is our  intention to schedule an hour or
more during each of the session  breaks for poster viewing and informal
discussion.  Two-page extended abstracts prepared in camera-ready form for
all  invited talks and poster session presentations are due by April 4 1997,
for inclusion in the technical program. Text should be  arranged in a
single-column format, with at least one-inch borders  on all sides. Figures
may be included. The technical program will  be distributed at the workshop.
Please send extended abstracts to:
