The innovationsforum

The innovationsforum is dedicated to bringing you the latest information on best practices, new technologies and the future of automation.


The innovationsforum originally started out as a customer event in Germany for the four Dresden-based companies AIS, HAP, Ortner, and SYSTEMA. In 2015 Xenon officially joined the Automation Network Dresden which is the organizer of the conference.


It has grown to be one the most successful conferences on innovation in automation in Dresden. In 2015 the conference took place in the USA for the first time. Typically customers of the five companies present projects they have done together over the course of two half days.


In recent years there has been a focus on showcasing new technologies and achievements in automation research. Each year an 'Innovation Award for Automation' is given to an influencer and driver of innovations in manufacturing at the evening event and dinner party.

  • For Infineon Dresden automation has been essentially important for many years now, as we have an almost fully automated production.
    The Automation Forum is globally recognized as one of the most important conferences to discuss innovative automation solutions and the perfect place for networking, discussing and sharing of new ideas.

  • For us at SEMI it is important to get direct feedback from our Members and stakeholders. The innovationsforum for automation organized by AND is an excellent networking platform for us.
    I find it personally of high value to exchange opinions, both with manufacturers but also solution providers

  • I found attending the Annual Innovations Forum for Automation a truly rewarding experience, definitely time well spent. It was a unique opportunity to meet and talk with an international community of professional within and in industries closely related to SEMI Manufacturing. Topics ranged for technical cutting edge technology introductions to application developments / deployments, and related support services such as inventory , equipment, and shop floor management. The Forum has succeeded in creating a very accepting and positive environment.

  • In 2009 I attended the innovationsforum for the first time. Since then I enjoyed being a regular guest of the event in Dresden. Besides the numerous interesting talks and presentations , the innovationsforum for automation is an ideal opportunity to exchange ideas and knowledge with colleagues from other companies, suppliers and to networking in personal conversation. The two-day program is entertaining and the evening event pleasantly tops off the forum.
