Expanded conference program to cover market- and future-oriented topics at Componex/electronicIndia 2006
Aug 11, 2005
Expansion of the successful conference in parallel with the leading regional electronics trade fair Componex/electronicIndia 2006 in New Delhi
International speakers for a series of lecture and discussion sessions on automotive electronics and micro - and nanotechnology as well as embedded design and electronics production
As the leading regional trade show for electronics components, assemblies and electronics production technology, the Componex/electronicIndia trade show at the Pragati Maidan Exhibition Center in New Delhi will again be offering an attractive (and expanded) conference program as a supplement to the trade exhibition. From January 23rd through 25th, 2006, Munich Trade Fairs International and the Indian publisher "Electronics Today" will continue the successful series of lectures and discussions with four supplementary individual events on the subjects of automotive electronics and micro- and nanotechnology, and on the new topics of embedded design and electronics production.
Thus, by covering the topics of automotive electronics, nanotechnology and semiconductor design, the trade show and conference program are presenting both the Indian economy's growth markets and the manufacturing challenges posed by the ROHS/WEEE directive. The Indian economy offers outstanding prospects for the future. Over the past ten years the country has recorded an average annual growth rate of six percent. Furthermore, the establishment of new special economic zones modeled after the ones created in China, and investments to build up the transportation and power generation infrastructure are continuing to advance India's position as an investment zone. The fact that the country took third place following China and the USA in a recent attractivity ranking shows that India is on the right track with the measures that it has implemented.
The "International Conference on Automotive Electronics" serves as an international forum for industry, research institutions, and governmental agencies. Within the framework of this forum, the current developments on the market for automotive electronics will be shown in technical seminars on Infotainment, x-by-wire, 42-volt equipment and the standardization of electronic components and systems used in automobiles. At the same time, this conference, which is being held in conjunction with Componex/electronicIndia, also serves as a platform that enables entrepreneurs and managers to discuss developments and exchange information as they seek to talk about and sound out their opportunities on the international and regional market for automotive electronics.
The "International Conference on Microsystems and Nanotechnology" concentrates on a high-tech segment with a big future. The program includes presentations that provide a general overview of the market and its trends, the individual technologies, and applications that are already commercial successes along with the applications of the future. Sessions on critical topics such as "Strategic Management of Intellectual Property" and an open panel discussion on the market opportunities in India round off this practically oriented conference.
Embedded technologies and the current challenges facing the electronics production sector, such as the lead-free directives and the associated technical consequences, will be addressed in the "Semiconductor Chip Design" and "Trends in Manufacturing Technologies" conferences, which are being added to the program for the first time.
All together, the conference program perfectly complements the exhibition portfolio for Componex/electronicIndia, which brings together the international and regional industry each year as the most important trade show for electronics on the Indian Subcontinent.
In 2005, Componex/electronicIndia posted a record number of participants with 628 exhibiting and participating companies as well as 25,000 attendees. The exhibitors - most of which come from outside India (the share of foreign exhibitors remained steady at about 70 percent) - are interested in a country with one of the world's fastest growing electronics industries: Last year, India's market volume for electronics was 11.5 billion US dollars. Market researchers such as In-Stat are forecasting an average annual growth rate of 23 percent until 2010, which would raise the volume of India's electronics market to 40 billion US dollars by then.
