SEMI EXPO CIS GATHERS SCIENTIFIC AND BUSINESS EXPERTS FROM THE SEMICONDUCTOR COMMUNITY

BRUSSELS, MOSCOW, 1 June 2005 -- The 12th annual SEMI Expo CIS will be held in Moscow on 26-28 September. The annual conference and exhibition is dedicated to the semiconductor equipment and materials industry and is hosted by SEMI, a global industry association.

Equipment and materials suppliers, semiconductor manufacturers and representatives of downstream segments will meet at the National Moscow Hotel and the New Manege Exhibition Hall for the three day event, which includes the Industry Strategy Symposium (ISS Moscow) on 26 September, the Market Conference on 27 September, a conference dedicated to MEMS/MST on 28 September, a table-top exhibition and the Technical Symposium on 27-28 September.

"SEMI Expo CIS brings together global semiconductor enterprises and the scientific community, thus providing a common space for sharing scientific expertise and business savoir-faire," said Walter Roessger, President Europe/CIS. "Now that Russia and the EU have adopted a roadmap for science and education cooperation, it is crucial that the semiconductor manufacturers and their suppliers are integrated into this process at the right time."

For the first time this year, SEMI Expo CIS will host a one-day conference dedicated to MEMS. The MEMS/MST Conference will cover MEMS market status and trends, MEMS development in Russia, design and equipment for MEMS manufacturing, applications and commercialization. Presentations will include EU Commission programs with regards to MEMS, the role of universities in the development of the MEMS/MST in Russia, and in the field of applications, the development of MEMS or MST for several industry segments, such as the biomedical industry and the automobile industry.

Now in its second edition in Russia, the Industry Strategy Symposium (ISS Moscow) will address four major themes in semiconductor manufacturing processes: innovation, manufacturing, applications and fabless.

The Market Conference will provide an industry update and address the core theme of “How to do business in Russia”.

Semiconductor Process Technologies, Photovoltaic, Power Electronics, AEC/APC and FPD will be the main topics at the Technical Symposium, together with a review of the latest developments in SEMI Standards.

The Technical Symposium will be held at the New Manege together with the product exhibition. The exhibition serves as a communication platform for local and worldwide companies doing business in the semiconductor industry and related fields.

An optional tour to St. Petersburg from 29 September until 1 October will include a visit to the IT and MST Centres at the St. Petersburg Electro Technical University.
