IEST Fall Conference 2006 Registration


Rolling Meadows, IL | Posted on October 08, 2006

Join the Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology (IEST) for its annual Fall Conference, November 5-8, 2006 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Hoffman Estates, Illinois (near Chicago O'Hare International Airport). The Fall Conference will feature contamination control working group meetings, as well as a variety of tutorial classes covering issues related to cleanrooms and controlled environments.

New this year is a tutorial titled Applying Risk Management to Contamination Control. The course will focus on the three risk assessment methods - Fault Tree; Failure Modes and Effect Analysis; and Fishbone. Case studies for industrial cleanrooms will be presented and the class will apply these methods to contamination issues. Anne Marie Dixon, IEST Fellow and Chair of the United States Technical Advisory Group (US TAG) to ISO Technical Committee (TC) 209, will be the instructor.

Do not miss out on Nanotechnology Facility Design: The Next Generation of Cleanrooms. This class will be taught by the manager of the new Birck Nanotechnology Center at Purdue University, John Weaver. The tutorial will focus on the basics of planning and design of these highly complex facilities. It will also guide those involved in these processes around many of the pitfalls that can make a facility either less effective or more expensive to build and operate. The design of nanotechnology facilities embodies many cleanroom concepts that have evolved over the past 40 years.

In addition, an ISO Test Methods Certificate Program consisting of three tutorials will be offered: Understanding the ISO 14644 Series; Testing to Determine the Classification of Air Cleanliness; and Testing Cleanroom Performance Using ISO 14644-3. These classes are offered as stand-alone tutorials as well. Robert Mielke, IEST Fellow and Secretary for ISO Technical Committee 209, Cleanrooms and associated controlled environments, is the instructor.

Tutorial, working group, and registration information is available at More information about IEST can be found at, or by calling (847) 255-1561.
