SEMICON Korea 2016: Connect to the future

Today, SEMI announced additional details on the 29th annual SEMICON Korea, with more than 40,000 expected attendees, the largest semiconductor technology event in Korea.  The theme for the January 27 through 29 exhibition at Seoul’s COEX is “Connect to the Future – Markets, Technology, and People.”  SEMICON Korea will feature new innovations, technologies and present the future of semiconductor processing technology. The event will be co-located with LED Korea 2016, the leading exhibition for LED manufacturing.

SEMICON Korea 2016 will feature over 530 leading companies from 20 countries with expectation of a record 1,870 exhibition booths. With 97 presentations on diverse topics for 60 hours, the event offers exceptional opportunities to learn and network. In addition, four industry thought leader keynotes will provide insight into the future of global semiconductor industry (including a keynote that will be announced soon before SEMICON Korea):

  • Dr. Ahmad Bahai, CTO of Texas Instruments
  • Dr. Aart de Geus, chairman and co-CEO of Synopsys: “IoT: from Silicon to Software”
  • Berthold Hellenthal, head of the Audi Progressive Semiconductor Program at Audi: “Inventing the Automotive Future”

The keynotes will be followed by a broad offering of deep programs including the SEMI Technology Symposium where experts in semiconductor manufacturing processes will discuss the latest issues and new technologies. The event also covers advanced lithography, advanced process technology, device technology, plasma science and etching, contamination-free manufacturing and CMP, and advanced packaging technologies.

In addition, forums and seminars cover major issues in the semiconductor market, including System LSI, Metrology and Inspection (MI) and Test. The SEMI Standards Program, which develops the global standards indispensable in the strengthening of international competitiveness, will conduct a strong program. Two other programs are increasingly popular with their exclusive navigation of the semiconductor manufacturing supply chain:  Supplier Search – featuring the world’s leading materials manufacturers, and OEM Supplier Search – which facilitates business cooperation between global suppliers and Korea’s parts manufacturers.  The President Reception is a SEMICON Korea highlight where industry leaders network — bringing together suppliers, customers, and innovation leaders.
