ISMI Announces Keynote Speakers for 2010 Symposium

Austin, TX | Posted on June 8th, 2010

International SEMATECH Manufacturing Initiative (ISMI), the subsidiary of SEMATECH dedicated to helping improve the productivity and cost performance of semiconductor manufacturing operations, today announced the keynote speakers for its 7th Annual ISMI Symposium on Manufacturing Effectiveness, taking place October 31 to November 4, 2010 at the Renaissance Austin Hotel in Austin, Texas.

Heralded as the only conference where fab engineers and managers can meet face-to-face and collaborate, the ISMI Manufacturing Week agenda will cover all aspects of manufacturing productivity, including the latest in cost-cutting methodologies, real-time data management, and advances in equipment and fab design.

The list of keynote speakers includes:

· Thomas Sonderman, vice president of manufacturing systems and technology at GLOBALFOUNDRIES

· Woosung Han, President, Samsung Austin Semiconductor

· John Cohn, IBM Fellow and chief scientist of design automation at IBM

"Our event offers attendees an open forum to discover how to best use current and emerging methodologies to help drive manufacturing productivity," said Mike Schwartz, Symposium Chair. "This year's conference will feature the industry's thought leaders, experts and engineers focusing on leading productivity trends."

The Annual AEC/APC Symposium - another of SEMATECH's best known meetings - will be co-located with ISMI's Manufacturing Week for the first time and will feature recent advancements to improve the reliability and efficiency of factory operations. The symposia programs include a wide-range of short courses and workshops, an exhibit pavilion filled with the latest tools and solutions from some of the industry's top suppliers, as well as various networking opportunities.

The event schedule is organized around the following key themes:

· Fab and equipment productivity improvements

· New strategies and "green" manufacturing solutions

· Techniques to increase manufacturing yield

Registration for the AEC/APC and ISMI Manufacturing Effectiveness symposia is open to both ISMI members and the general public. Companies interested in exhibiting at the event may register at ismi.sematech.org/ismisymposium/exhibit.htm or for general information, please visit ismi.sematech.org/ismisymposium.

ISMI Manufacturing Week and AEC/APC AEC/APC Symposium are part of the SEMATECH Knowledge Series, a set of public, single-focused industry meetings designed to increase global knowledge in key areas of semiconductor R&D.
