The 49th SEMICON West will be held July 9-11, 2019, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Themed “Beyond Smart,” SEMICON West will reportedly take aim at global electronics manufacturing industry disruptors with programs and pavilions focused on critical areas of industry growth. Each themed pavilion (Smart Design, Smart Manufacturing, Smart MedTech, Smart Transportation, Smart Workforce, and Wearable Technologies) will feature a Meet the Experts Theater where attendees can engage informally with industry thought leaders (see Agenda at a Glance).
Legendary inventor Dean Kamen, regarded by Forbes magazine as the “Modern-day Edison,” and creator of the Segway and hundreds of other innovations, will share the stage with other keynote speakers from industry powerhouses such as AMD, Applied Materials, IBM, and Synopsys. The AI Design Forum will return on July 9 for its second year at SEMICON West. SEMI Americas, the Electronic System Design Alliance, and Applied Materials are partnering to stage the event with speakers representing the entire computing ecosystem.
