10th MicroSystemTechnology Congress 2023
Visit our presentations on the future-oriented key technologies of microelectronics and microsystems engineering at the MikroSystemTechnik (MST) Congress from October 23-25, 2023 at the International Congress Center Dresden. At this national conference, which has always been the largest, you will have the opportunity to illuminate the current state of the art with our experts*. Benefit from an intensive exchange and learn how important these technologies are for the economic power and our common good and which future opportunities they offer. Visit us at the joint booth of FMD (Forschungsfabrik Mikroelektronik Deutschland) - an association of excellent research institutions. We look forward to seeing you!
Under the sign of sustainability and technology sovereignty
The rising global demand for semiconductors highlights the importance of an intact value chain, both nationally and internationally. Nowhere do we see this more clearly than in Silicon Saxony, Europe's largest location for microelectronics in Europe. We welcome you to Dresden, the capital of the Free State of Saxony. It is home to the leading universities, colleges and research institutes in the field of microelectronics. With the semiconductor fabs of Bosch, Infineon, Globalfoundries, X-Fab and internationally leading medium-sized companies, Saxony is a unique ecosystem of microelectronics and microsystems technology that currently employs around 70,000 people.
Digitalization, technological sovereignty and trusted electronics - exciting topics await you
Due to the worldwide progress of digitalization, however, other topics are coming to the fore besides the mere availability of semiconductors: technological sovereignty and trustworthiness in microelectronics ("Trusted Electronics"), sustainability aspects ("Green ICT") as well as Next Generation Computing may be mentioned here. To strengthen innovations in these areas, the German government has launched a corresponding microelectronics framework program. The MST Congress 2023 is intended to provide strong impetus and show that the achievement of climate targets and the economical, efficient use of energy can only be achieved through the use of microsystems and microelectronics.
Wanted: a strong network, reliable partners, innovative developments and convinced specialists who shape our future
To achieve these goals, we need a strong network. Partners who work together to shape the future, who deliver top performance in research, who translate innovative developments into marketable products and - above all - who train the specialists we so urgently need in this rapidly growing industry. We must convince young people that they can make valuable contributions to their future in our industry.
After all, people make microelectronics. So take advantage of the congress to enter into a professional exchange with each other. Make new contacts and enjoy an exciting and varied supporting program.
I wish you a lot of fun!
Prof. Dr. Hubert Lakner
