June 8-10, 2010, imec (day 1) and Hilton Antwerp Hotel (days 2-3), Belgium
Conference theme: Nanotechnology shaping a better life in a sustainable society
About the conference
Consumers rarely think of all the ways that technology simplifies their lives. But imec and its partners are constantly monitoring problems and trends and thinking of solutions for each one. How are we going to develop a sustainable and prosperous world for the earth¡¦s population in the 21st century? We are convinced that technology will play an essential role in finding solutions for climate change and the depletion of the earths sources (renewable energy), the ageing population and the rising costs of healthcare (biomedical electronics), sustainable mobility, efficient communication etc.
The Imec Technology Forum brings together executives from companies and institutes in Asia, Europe and the USA to discuss advances in nanotechnology for innovations targeting a better life in a sustainable society.
The imec Technology Forum will feature prominent speakers from world-leading companies in semiconductors, healthcare, energy and smart systems. Keynote presentations will be followed by imec¡¦s strategy, achievements and insights.
The following renowned keynote speakers have already confirmed their participation:
„h Ahmad Bahai (Chief Technologist, Fellow, National Semiconductor)
„h Eric Daniels (VP Technology, BP Solar)
