Datafication & Automation:
The new normal for semiconductor manufacturing

The 18th Innovation Forum for Automation delivered even more – more sessions, more in-depth insights, and more real-world scenarios from industry experts.

The Innovation Forum for Automation, as you know it, was transformed into a series of virtual events – with each partner company of the Automation Network Dresden (AND) hosting an event.

The Kick off was done by SYSTEMA: Addressing the current digital transformation, our speakers highlighted the changes and challenges in semiconductor manufacturing.

To continue our tradition of providing an excellent opportunity for sharing experiences between industry experts, our guest speakers talked about their insights from both semiconductor front-end and back-end manufacturing.
