CSTIC is the largest annual semiconductor industry technology conference in China. The 2010 event will be held on 18-19 March 2010 in Shanghai in conjunction with SEMICON China just before the World Expo 2010. It is the most comprehensive semiconductor-related technology conference in the world, covering topics from design, device, lithography, materials, processes, packaging, emerging semiconductor and silicon materials for electronic and photovoltaic applications.
More than 100 of the world’s leading experts from top IC companies, including IBM, Intel, Toshiba, TI, TSMC, SMIC, Applied Materials, MEMC and top universities, including Harvard University, UC Berkeley, Cornell University Tsinghua University, and Fudan University will give keynote and invited speeches at CSTIC 2010. Dr. Stuart S.P. Parkin, IBM Fellow, Dr. Simon Yang, Senior VP of Chartered, Dr. T.P. Ma, Director of Yale University and Dr. Zhengrong Shi, Chairman and CEO of Suntech will give keynote speeches at the CSTIC 2010 plenary session. Industry leaders including Dr. Yan Borodovsky of Intel, Dr. Burn Lin of TSMC, Dr. Stefan Lai of Being Advanced Memory, Dr. John Knickerbocker and Dr. Subramanian Iyer of IBM, and Dr. Henry Erk from MEMC will also give keynote speeches at different symposia at the conference.
CSTIC is organized by SEMI and ECS, co-organized by China's High-Tech Expert Committee (CHTEC). It is co-sponsored by IEEE-EDS, the China Electronics Materials Industry Association and the Chinese Society of Electrochemistry. More than 80 committees from industry and academia around the world helped to organize the conference, which is chaired by Dr. Hanming Wu, R&D Director of SMIC. The collaboration of world organizations provides consistent and efficient conference operations while the strong technical committee guarantees a comprehensive set of high-quality programs and papers.
The annual SESEA Award (SEMI & ECS Best Students and Young Engineers Award) application process has begun and will close on January 20, 2010. For more information about CSTIC, please visit http://semiconchina.semi.org/cstic.
