SEMI: Strategic Business Conference (SBC)

SEMI: Strategic Business Conference (SBC) For the second year I am serving as Committee Chairman for SEMI's Strategic Business Conference. I really have a great group of people to work with - members and employees of SEMI that put in a great deal of effort putting this event together. This year I think the team has assembled a top-notch program. It's so good that I think it is appropriate to let INFRASTRUCTURE readers know about it so if they have an interest they can sign up before all the seats sell out. SEMI has set up a page on their site where you can view the agenda and register. The companies and speakers that will be presenting represent a who's who of the semiconductor business. SBC 2005 Keynote Speakers: * Joe Zelayeta, Executive Vice President, ASIC Technology and Methodology, LSI Logic * Jon Kang, Senior Vice President, Samsung Electronics * Wally Rhines, Chairman and CEO, Mentor Graphics * Robert Bruck, VP Technology and Manufacturing Group Director, Fab Capital Equipment Development Intel Corporation In addition to these speakers executives from Texas Instruments, SMIC, IBM, Renesas, Micron, STMicroelectronics, Nanotera, Infineon and National Semicondutor will take the stage. There will be two panel sessions at the Conference. The first, manned by Ken Rygler, will address the question of Designing for Profitability; Designing for Dollars? The second panel discussion is particularly germane to recent news: Equipment Life Cycle Management: Optimizing the Return on Assets for Legacy Fabs. That panel will be moderated by Dana Ditmore of Oak Valley Consulting. The program and the setting makes SBC one of the best networking events of the year. The conference takes place May 9-11, 2005 at the Resort at the Mountain, Welches Oregon. Check it out. If you have any questions, drop me a note. I hope to see you there. Carl
