 the only global nanotech conference that leverages the technical and
 manufacturing expertise of semiconductor equipment, materials and service
     Building on the success of last fall's inaugural NanoForum in Austin,
 Texas, NanoForum 2005 will explore expanding opportunities for nanotechnology
 in 10 major markets, as well as the latest technological developments for
 producing nano devices. Markets to be addressed include medical,
 biotechnology, automotive, consumer, energy, industrial controls, defense,
 aerospace, information technology and telecommunications. Technology topics
 include materials, metrology, deposition, surface conditioning, etch, implant,
 planarization, diffusion and annealing.
     "With the participation of nearly 400 delegates from North American,
 Europe and Asia, NanoForum 2004 launched a global discussion of
 commercializing nanotech between the semiconductor industry, and investors,
 entrepreneurs, scientists and government officials," said Stanley Myers, SEMI
 president and chief executive officer. "NanoForum 2005 will bring these key
 groups back together to share their expertise and insights and to explore the
 evolving opportunities and technological developments for nanotech."
