Welcome Message from the Program Chairman
On behalf of the STS Organizing Committee, I would like to welcome all speakers and participants working in the semiconducting industry who have joined us for SEMICON Korea STS (SEMI Technology Symposium) 2017.
In 2016, the world economy faced many unprecedented challenges such as an increase in the uncertainty presented by Brexit, world-wide low growth and polarization effects. Along with the world economy, the uncertainty in the semiconductor market is also intensifying. However, despite such challenges, thanks to the relentless efforts of those in the industry, the semiconductor technology is continuing to innovate, and the fact that the hot topics of 2016 including artificial intelligence, autonomous cars and virtual/augmented reality are based on the semiconductor technology once again highlights that the semiconductor is the core of the ICT industry.
In light of such situations, meaningful theses from six different areas of Lithography, Interconnection, Device, Etch, Contamination-free Manufacturing & CMP and Package will be announced at the SEMICON Korea STS 2017, for us learn about various new technologies while gaining insight into the development direction of the next generation semiconductor technology. We hope that participants will be able to gather valuable knowledge again this year.
In particular, as we celebrate the 30th anniversary of SEMICON Korea, we have prepared various programs, and I would like to ask you all to show a special interest and participate actively in the SEMI Technology Symposium that has acted as the pillar in presenting the trend of new semiconductor technologies.
Once again, as the Program Chairman of SEMICON Korea STS 2017, I would like to express my gratitude to all international and Korean speakers and all participants who have honored us with your presence, and the members of SEMI and the organizing committee who have done their utmost for contributing to the success of STS 2017.
Thank you again.
