19th Innovation Forum
January 27/28, 2022
About the Innovation Forum
This annual conference has been organized by the Automation Network Dresden (AND) from Germany since 2004. Its member companies (Fabmatics, Kontron AIS, SYSTEMA and XENON) are dedicated to bringing you the latest information on significant factory-automation projects as well as new automation technologies spanning various industries with a focus on semiconductor.
The 2-day-event provides a platform for more than 300 international executives, managers, engineers and researchers to discuss the latest factory automation technology developments, challenges, and solutions.
Each year, we select one project to honor the drivers for innovation by rewarding them with the 'Innovation Award for Automation' at the popular AND dinner party.
Event Review 2021 - DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION AT ITS BEST
The Innovation Forum for Automation stands for an excellent opportunity for networking and personal exchange between industry experts. We will continue on this path with a completely digital event.
To address the increasing interest in automation while respecting the current, worldwide travel and contact restrictions, our next steps are dedicated to transform the forum into a series of digital events in the first quarter of 2021.
Each of the four partner companies of the AND Automation Network Dresden - Fabmatics, Kontron AIS, SYSTEMA and XENON - will host one free online event.
The link tying it all together is the mission we are committed to: Keeping the community connected and up to date with new automation trends across high-tech industries and innovative projects.
…and rest assured: The famous evening event and the personal networking will return!
meet the automation network
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.
Who wants to experience industry 4.0 in real world applications and (solved) problems is just right in the "Innovation Forum automation".
Both from Lighthouse companies and SMEs practitioners speak for practitioners, and provide a global perspective on the current issues in industrial automation.
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
The Innovationsforum for Automation is a very good opportunity to see innovations from different companies and get an overview on fab automation. A great benefit of this event is the chance to network with a wide range of people which have great experiences and know-how in the semiconductor and related industries.”
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.
An impressive and well organized event! The content and topics of the presentations were all exciting and marvelous. The performance, ideas and approaches of the great number of companies attending really impressed me. The atmosphere among the participants, the choice of speakers and venues led again to lively exchanges and networking.
I was particularly impressed by the opportunities to network and exchange ideas with both providers and users of automation solutions. In addition, the talks and presentations provide a detailed insight into current challenges regarding the automation of semiconductor manufacturing.
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.
Innovationsforum was a wonderful opportunity to learn directly from industry experts and get to know others who are leading the industry and solving the same challenges my organization faces. This event was extremely valuable for my team and it is our one must-do event for 2019.
