S2K 2011 moves to Surrey and focuses on Innovative Manufacturing Processes

March 31, 2011
Date Announced: 31 Mar 2011 With the importance of manufacturing as a powerhouse to the economy resurfacing on the Governments’ agenda it is appropriate that the theme of this years’ annual S2K conference event should be Innovative Manufacturing Processes in Micro and Nano electronics applications. JEMI UK Ltd has announced that the S2K event in 2011 will be held at the University of Surrey which is deeply involved with the development of new and innovative processes in microelectronics manufacturing.Mike Smyth, Chairman of S2K commented “The theme of the event is aligned with the announcements made by Government in their recent Growth Review, which targets the expansion of Britain’s manufacturing sector and positioning the UK as Europe’s leading exporter of high value goods. We are very fortunate to have secured Bernie Caparo of Intel as Chairman for the 2011 S2K event. Intel is one of the leading and certainly the most recognised Global Semiconductor Manufacturers.Combined with a strong speaker line up and program of workshops, this event is essential for anyone interested in high tech growth areas”The change of venue reflects the strategy intended for the event when first conceived of visiting geographic centres of expertise in micro and nano technology. First launched last century (in 1999), Semiconductor 2000 as it was then known was designed to create a platform for dialogue and business development for the semiconductor industry. Since then the event has evolved to support many of the niche sectors which have developed over the past decade, as well as supporting the traditional spirit of the event which was to give European based companies, and in particular UK companies, a global overview of market development and upcoming trends.This year’s S2K event which will be held at the University of Surrey on the 21st and 22nd June and will build on the successful format developed over the past 2 years of incorporated associated events with the main conference and which has resulted in a very successful and well attended event will a great level of engagement.JEMI UK Ltd and the Nanotechnology KTN who are supporting the event expect that up to 200 top level micro, nano and semiconductor professionals will attend the event.
