As the premier annual event for the global semiconductor and related technology industries, SEMICON West, along with its co-located and partner events, is a respected platform for the presentation and discovery of the latest trends and ideas in semiconductor manufacturing and related microelectronics industry.

Invitation for Presenters

SEMI welcomes industry input and suggestions from potential speakers.

SEMICON West 2015 will feature more than 60 hours of technical sessions and presentations across the popular TechXPOT programs, the Semiconductor Technology Symposium and the Sustainable Manufacturing Forum. TechXPOT programs in the Moscone Center North and South Halls will continue focusing on special topics in semiconductor manufacturing, and adjacent and related microelectronics technologies.

The Semiconductor Technology Symposium will offer technology trends, developments and new technology information in the areas of advanced materials and processing, lithography, metrology, 450mm, advanced packaging,  and semiconductor test.

The Sustainable Manufacturing Forum will showcase companies and speakers from around the world focused on the technologies, issues, and management approaches shaping the future of sustainable manufacturing in the microelectronics industry.
