Annual SEMI Conference Features Leading Industry Presenters

BRUSSELS, Belgium – 25 September 2006 – Stephane Garelli, author of the IMD’s World Competitiveness Yearbook and professor at the Institute for Management Development (IMD) of Lausanne (Switzerland), will be guest speaker at the 20th edition of the SEMI Europe Industry Strategy Symposium (ISS Europe). This year’s symposium will be held at the ‘Kongress Haus Zurich’ in Zurich (Switzerland) on 4-6 February 2007, and is presented by Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International (SEMI).

The theme of the 20th annual ISS Europe is “Mobilizing Europe’s Strengths,” and will call upon high-level representatives of European device manufacturers and their suppliers to share perspectives on Europe’s competitiveness in microelectronics, the latest technology trends and opportunities for investment.

“ISS Europe is more than a symposium to discuss our industry’s future in Europe” said Heinz Kundert, president, SEMI Europe. “It is a forum for decision-makers across the entire microelectronics supply chain to meet with their peers and gather perspectives from many world-famous experts in business and economics, and then build their own strategies more effectively.”
