  1. Telling from the titles, it is probably more of a business show than technical conference.

  2. Who tries to talk about the future and beyond should be very careful! He can be considered as ridicule in a near future :)-

  3. IMEC is in Belgium, not France :)

  4. and PMD Technologies is in Germany, not Belgium :)

  5. Sorry, guys. I've just copied it from the conference site without proofreading.
