PANEL SESSION: Innovations and Challenges in Advanced Semiconductor Materials: Perspectives from Entegris, Soitec, and Resonac

Moderator

Kamel Ait Mahiout is a seasoned professional with over 30 years of experience in the electronics industry. His expertise spans from RF and Microwave engineering to executive roles in prominent companies such as Unity SC and Amkor Technology, where he significantly contributed to the growth and alignment of the businesses with key industry players.

International Semiconductor Executive Summits (ISES) holds a significant position within the semiconductor industry. Since 2010 we have scaled 8 major successful regional events globally. Our initiatives to date have been fully supported by local governments. For e.g., ISES USA is hosted in partnership with the Greater Phoenix Economic Council, ISES Taiwan is hosted in partnership with ITRI, ISES EU is hosted in partnership with the EU Commission, ISES Southeast Asia in partnership with Invest in Penang. We serve as a platform where senior executives in technology, manufacturing and R&D from various semiconductor companies, technology providers, and related industries gather to exchange information, shape strategies, and discuss the industry’s direction. Our summits have influenced industry trends and decisions due to the high-level discussions that take place.
