SEMI Europe Standards Autumn Conference and Meetings Set for October 26-28

Annual Event Includes Workshop on Energy Conservation

Brussels, Belgium, August 23, 2005 -- The SEMI Europe Standards Autumn Conference and Meetings event will be held October 26-28 in Leuven, Belgium. The theme of this year’s conference is “Standard Electronics Manufacturing Initiatives for Wireless Communication Devices.” The agenda features speakers from equipment and materials suppliers, device makers and end-users.

“Participation and support from the device manufacturing community is critical for the development and adoption of future SEMI Standards,” said Walter Roessger, president, SEMI Europe. “The Autumn Conference and Meetings provide a platform for the entire semiconductor community to debate the contribution of standards to the efficiency of the chip manufacturing process”.

The conference on wireless communication devices will be held October 26, with an educational program on SEMI safety guidelines taking place the same day. Standards technical committee and task forces meetings will take place on October 27, while a visit to IMEC (Interuniversity MicroElectronics Center) in Leuven is scheduled for October 28.

In addition, a one-day workshop on Energy Conservation will be held on October 25. The workshop is organized by the International Energy Conservation Initiatives Task Force which was recently formed by SEMI to identify practical ideas for energy conservation in line with roadmap targets set by the World Semiconductor Council. The workshop will cover three areas; semiconductor manufacturing plants, semiconductor manufacturing equipment, and components used in semiconductor equipment.

All the events, including the technical committees and task forces meetings are open to qualified members of the press. For further information about the event, please visit the SEMI Website at www.semi.org/eustandards
