The focus of this year's Semicon West is on smart transportation, smart manufacturing, smart medtech, smart data, big data, artificial intelligence, blockchain, Internet of Things (IoT) and wearable technology. The last topic is especially represented as for the first time the longest running Wearable Technologies conference is co-locating with Semicon West this year.

The WT | Wearable Technologies Conference, organized by a Bavarian company, is a global business development and innovation platform in the wearable industry. Since 2006, WT has established a network consisting of technology leaders, startups, blue-chip firms, and investors.
