Intel’s Frank Robertson to Keynote SEMI NanoForum

Nov. 14-17 Event Brings Together Chip-Industry Titans, Nanotech Startups

Austin, TX. September 13, 2004

SEMI® today announced that Frank Robertson, a key figure for external programs and technology at Intel Corp., will deliver a keynote speech at SEMI NanoForum™ 2004 on Nov. 15 in Austin, Texas. Robertson joined Intel in 2000 to form the technology group, whose mission is to get maximum value for Intel from research in microelectronics and semiconductors.

SEMI NanoForum, Nov. 14-17 at the new Austin Hilton Hotel, is the first opportunity for SEMI members, along with nanotechnology developers from seven key markets, to jointly explore nanotechnology applications and strategies for commercialization. More than 500 industry leaders, executives, business development and marketing strategists, technologists and university experts are expected to attend. Specific markets to be addressed at the event include defense, information technology, biotech, medical, automotive, telecom and consumer.

Robertson, a 30-year veteran of the chip industry oversees Intel’s involvement with global research organizations, including SEMATECH, the Semiconductor Research Corp., Microelectronics Advanced Research Corp., IMEC, which is Europe’s leading independent microelectronics R&D organization, and Japan’s Millennium Research for Advanced Information Technology (MIRAI). Robertson’s group also coordinates sponsored research projects designed to bring emerging technologies from leading universities to Intel.

The subject of Robertson’s Nov. 15 presentation is “Silicon Nanoelectronics: A Major Force Going Forward.” SEMI NanoForum 2004 will feature a broad cross section of leading companies from the semiconductor materials and equipment industry and the most promising nanotechnology companies and startups. For example, Larry Bock, chief executive of Nanosys Inc., also will speak on Nov. 15 about the profound effect that nanotechnology-enabled systems will have on the energy, defense, electronics, health-care and information-technology industries.

“Frank Robertson and Larry Bock are a perfect example of what this conference is about: the first-ever international gathering of technology leaders in semiconductors coming together with the best and brightest nanotech entrepreneurs,” said SEMI President Stan Myers. “The conference is structured to tap the expertise of these groups, as well as researchers, investors, and business-development professionals, so that jointly we will identify the most promising pathways to partnerships, development and further commercialization.”

“SEMI NanoForum 2004 has assembled a powerful roster of global IC players and the most visionary leaders of the emerging nanotechnology sector,” said Josh Wolfe, managing partner of Lux Capital and editor of the Forbes/Wolfe Nanotech Report. “The potential synergies between these two groups are striking, and I believe this conference will go a long way toward identifying where the best opportunities lie, both short and long term.”

Wolfe will participate in a Nov. 15 NanoForum panel discussion on financing commercialization. Other keynote speakers include George Atkinson, science and technology advisor to U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell; Dr. Mark Pinto, senior vice president, Applied Material’s New Business and New Products Group (NASDAQ: AMAT); and Dr. Robert Doering, senior fellow and technology strategy manager, Texas Instruments Inc. (NYSE: TXN).

NanoForum 2004, which Tradeshow Week named one of this year’s top five major nanotechnology conferences, is produced by SEMI.
