I found attending the Annual Innovations Forum for Automation a truly rewarding experience, definitely time well spent. It was a unique opportunity to meet and talk with an international community of professional within and in industries closely related to SEMI Manufacturing. Topics ranged for technical cutting edge technology introductions to application developments / deployments, and related support services such as inventory , equipment, and shop floor management. The Forum has succeeded in creating a very accepting and positive environment.
