The European Advanced Process Control and Manufacturing (apc|m) Conference is focussed on

Current challenges
and future needs of
Advanced Process Control
and Manufacturing Excellence

We explicitly call for abstracts that cover the practical application of data analytics and AI in semiconductor manufacturing, for example in one of the following domains:

  • Black Box vs. grey box vs. white box – how to combine engineers’ knowledge with ML / AI methods
  • Combining artificial intelligence with human intelligence (“Industry 4.h”) to accelerate learning and to apply best practices (e.g., process learning, smart repair, …)
  • Is AI suitable for a detection accuracy in the parts per million range?
  • Experiences in using data lakes vs. legacy data base systems
  • How to foster collaboration with universities and external partners by trustful data exchange, e.g., via (public) cloud platforms
