6th Annual Willamette Angel Conference

May 08

8am - 3pm
Ford Alumni Center
1720 East 13th Ave, Eugene, Oregon 97401

The Willamette Angel Conference is the largest angel group in the state of Oregon. We increase the amount of seed capital and angel funds available in the Willamette Valley by connecting early-stage companies with the capital they need to grow.

Early stage entrepreneurial ventures are highlighted to a strong and diverse group of investors when entrepreneurs submit a business plan for review and coaching. Investors review business models and select companies to review further through a due diligence process before awarding an investment of about $250,000. In 2013 the Conference was not a winner-take-all scenario. Companies from all over Oregon received investments totaling close to a half million dollars through the connections made during the Conference.

Diverse people spanning industries attend the Willamette Angel Conference (WAC) for a variety of reasons. Below are some categories of individuals attending the WAC.

Conference on Coherent Multidimensional Spectroscopy

Jul 13

Ford Center
University of Oregon
Eugene, Oregon

ONAMI is pleased to be a sponsor of CMDS 2014, a four-day, July 13-16, conference that will bring together scientists from different fields and serves as a venue for exchanging ideas between theorists and experimentalists. CMDS 2014 is the seventh conference of a series started in 2002 and follows the meetings held in Berlin, Seoul, Madison, Rigi-Kulm, Kyoto, and Minneapolis. CMDS has become the premier event for researchers developing and applying state-of-the-art multidimensional optical, infrared, and THz spectroscopic methods to address problems in chemistry, biology, physics, and material science.

SEMI Pacific Northwest Breakfast Forum

May 01

New Memory Technology
7:30 AM-11:00 AM
Intel Corporation, Hillsboro, OR

SEMI Pacific Northwest Chapter invites you to join the industry experts for the discussion of New Memory, Current and Future Challenges, & Opportunities and Implications on the Supply Chain.

As memory devices are hitting the scaling limits, paradigm shifts in Memory Technology and Architecture ranging from planar NAND to 3D NAND and DRAM to STT-RAM or MRAM or architectural changes such as the Hybrid Memory Cube are occurring. The alternatives have the potential to change the whole dynamics of the volatile and non-volatile memory markets, processes, equipment and material requirements. 

SEMI Pacific Northwest Breakfast Forum is a great opportunity to network with your colleagues and meet other local industry executives.

Oxide Thin Films for Advanced Energy Applications

Jul 13

Dr Stephen Skinner
Reader in Materials Chemistry, Imperial College London

Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa
Bonita Springs, Florida

Early Bird - 24/JAN/14
Talk Sumission - 31/JAN/14
Poster Submission - 12/MAY/14
Last Chance - 16/MAY/14

Oxide thin films are finding applications in a wide range of energy technologies, from ion conductors through photovoltaics and thermoelectrics to dielectrics and capacitors. Each of these energy technologies requires a thorough understanding of the materials chemistry of the oxide film and its interactions with the environment, substrate etc. Whilst in each technology area there may be materials differences, much of the materials chemistry optimisation may be common. For example, common families of oxides are employed, ABO3 perovskites in particular, and in this there are areas where discussion between user communities can prove mutually beneficial. It is the purpose of this meeting to foster an exchange of ideas between the relevant energy themes with the overall aim of provoking extensive discussion of the advances that materials chemistry can make in thin film energy applications.
