ISS Europe 2018: Strategies And Innovations To Compete Globally


Electronics manufacturing executives will attend Europe's SEMI Industry Strategy Symposium (ISS Europe) in Dublin, Ireland on 4-6 March 2018. Hosted by SEMI Europe, the ISS Europe 2018 is the three-day flagship business event that brings together leading analysts, researchers, economists, and technologists for critical insights on the forces shaping the electronics manufacturing supply chain.

While having core strengths of its own, Europe is part of a global innovation and supply chain and European organisations need to find new ways to maximise competitive advantage. "Organisations operating in Europe need to find the most effective way to innovate, manufacture and profit by finding their place in the global supply chain. During the symposium, best class discussions will address Europe's strategic, economic and social needs"said Laith Altimime, president, SEMI Europe.

A wide range of top European companies, research institutes and public institutions will debate the best ways to compete globally, along with discussions on successful manufacturing in Europe and mechanisms to support innovation:

Speaker Line-up:

"¢ David Bloss, VP, Technology Manufacturing Group, Intel

"¢ Holger Blume, Professor, University of Hanover

"¢ Jean-Frederic Clerc, Deputy CEO and CTO, CEA Tech

"¢ Kevin Cooney, Senior VP and Managing Director, Global CIO, Xilinx EMEA

"¢ Jean-Christophe Eloy, CEO, Yole Développement

"¢ Ann-Charlotte Johannesson, CEO, CEI-Europe AB

"¢ Cheryl Miller, Founder/Executive Director, Digital Leadership Institute

"¢ Mick A Morris, Director AMBER Research Centre, Professor, Trinity College Dublin

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
