Future Horizons Unveils Programme for International Electronics Forum

4/20/2005 - Future Horizons, Europe's leading semiconductor analyst, announced the programme for its 14th Annual International Electronics Forum, IEF2005, featuring some of the electronics' industries most senior figures. The event will take place at the Hilton Malta, Portomaso, Malta, from 1 to 3 May 2005.

The theme of this year's International Electronics Forum, 'Pursuing The Global Digital Utopia', focuses on the challenges that electronics industry faces as it moves into the third wave of digitisation.

The third wave, defined as the period post 2000, demands interoperability, as the boundaries between the office, home and car become increasingly blurred, with virtually the whole population soon permanently connected to the Internet, both as employees and consumers.

"Digitisation is finally on the point of becoming pervasive, like electricity and telephones before it. The opportunities offer boundless potential, but equally enormous are the challenges en route for the electronics industry," said Malcolm Penn, CEO, Future Horizons. "Cost escalation, CMOS scaling - will it won't it, cycle-time pressures, complexity, and cyclicality of markets are all wreaking havoc with the industry balance sheet".

Confirmed speakers include:

The International Electronics Forum offers an informal networking and debating environment at the highest possible level, plus the ability to step back from the daily thrust and grind to reflect on the broader industry issues with peers and likeminded people.

Places at the conference are available priced £1,895 for a single delegate or £1,695.00 group rate. A Forum brochure download and registration details are available from our website at: www.futurehorizons.com/new_web/forums/ieforum/ieforum.htm
