Welcome to Hsinchu, Taiwan. It is our great privilege to hold the 2018 International Symposium on Semiconductor Manufacturing Intelligence (ISMI2018). ISMI2018 aims to disseminate recent theoretical and methodological developments, significant technical applications, and case studies in semiconductor and high-tech manufacturing. Following the great success of ISMI in Taiwan (2012), Shanghai (2013), Taiwan (2014), South Korea (2015), and Taiwan (2016). ISMI2018 in Taiwan is going to serve to enhance collaborations among academia and industries. Under the main theme of Industry 4.0, the objective of the ISMI2018 aims to provide a platform to foster the exchange of research developments and latest practice on automation science & engineering, evolutionary algorithms, data mining and big data analytics, manufacturing informatics, modeling and decision analysis, and operation management for semiconductor and high-tech manufacturing to enhance collaborations among academia and industries. Furthermore, the involved research and applications are not limited to conventional manufacturing domains and can be extended to manufacturing-based services as well as emerging areas such as green supply chains, logistics, and business analysis and optimization.
This event is co-organized by National Tsing Hua University (NTHU), Chinese Institute of Industrial Engineers (CIIE), Society for Excelling Enterprises and Decisions (SEED), Semiconductor Technologies Empowerment Partners (STEP) Consortium, NTHU-TSMC Center for Manufacturing Excellence, and Dept. of Industrial Engineering and Engineering Management of NTHU.
This event is co-sponsored by the Ministry of Science and Technology, Ministry of Economic Affairs, IEEE Technical Committee on Semiconductor Manufacturing Automation, Taiwan Semiconductor Industry Association (TSIA), Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International (SEMI), and International Journal of Industrial Engineering: Theory, Applications, and Practice (IJIETAP). Finally, we would like to thank all of the participants and organizers for their contributions in this successful joint event in Hsinchu, Taiwan.
