SEMI has made the decision to postpone the Women in Semiconductors (WiS) program at ASMC, out of an abundance of caution as the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread. SEMI has always made the health, safety, and security of our members and guests our top priority. We continue to monitor Coronavirus developments, including advisories from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and evaluate impacts on SEMI events. 

WiS at ASMC 2020 scheduled on May 4, 2020 at Saratoga Hilton, NY will be postponed to a later date. 

SEMI regrets any inconvenience caused by this change, but we would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation for your understanding, patience and support during these challenging times.Please allow us time to assess alternatives and subsequent re-scheduling of activities. Until alternate dates are confirmed, we are keeping the original agenda online as reference.

The Women in Semiconductors (WiS) program at ASMC heads into 2020 with a lot of momentum, and attendees can be certain it will truly be a can’t-miss event.

Past participants at this extremely successful event applauded the focus on relevant topics to the future of the business and the industry as a whole. Building on the strength of the last four years’ programs, the Women in Semiconductors session at ASMC 2020 will focus on 'moving the needle' toward greater diversity. Participation by men and women is strongly encouraged.

The program developed by a committee of industry professionals will highlight how women can succeed and why it’s important to overall industry success. This year's committee is co-chaired by Priya Mukundhan, PhD, Onto Innovation and Hannah Rosen, TEL.

The Women in Semiconductors program at ASMC continues to connect more women in this industry while also driving critical discussions across genders. It promises to be an unforgettable day for all. Join us on May 4, 2020 at the Saratoga Hilton, Saratoga, NY.
