MEMS & Sensors Executive Congress 2023 to Spotlight Sensorization Driving Global SolutionsOctober 2, 2023 | SEMI
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Industry visionaries and experts will gather November 6-8 at the MEMS & Sensors Executive Congress (MSEC 2023) at the WIGWAM Resort in Phoenix, Arizona for insights into the latest trends and innovations in sensorization. Themed Sensorizing Our World – Driving Global Solutions, the conference will highlight applications and technology advances for growth markets including automotive, biomedical and MEMS healthcare, AI and generative AI, metaverse, positioning, navigation and timing (PNT), and sustainable smart cities. Registration is open.
“I’m very excited about this year’s MSEC 2023 theme of driving global solutions through sensorization,” said Tim Brosnihan, Executive Director of the SEMI MEMS & Sensors Industry Group (MSIG). “Sensors are essential to helping the world overcome challenges on a number of fronts, from climate change and transportation to improving health. At the same time, these obstacles create tremendous business and societal opportunities. We look forward to hosting industry leaders as they offer perspectives on the path forward.”
Hosted by the MEMS & Sensors Industry Group, a SEMI technology community, MSEC 2023 will kick off with an outdoor luncheon, a tour of EVG’s industry-leading MEMS tools and processing facilities, a poster session, and a presentation by Arizona State University Knowledge Enterprise Corporate Innovation Labs and faculty on MEMS and sensor innovation opportunities in Arizona’s Silicon Desert.
Day 1 at MSEC 2023 will also feature the Rolling Together Team Bike Building activity with bicycles to be donated to a local children’s charity.
