Each WSTS Member Company is represented by a single official representative on the Committee. This representative is expected to attend all Committee Meetings (Business Meetings) and to exercise their voting rights during these meetings, which typically take place on Tuesday mornings. Additionally, all other employees of WSTS Member Companies are welcome to participate in all aspects of the Committee Meetings (Business Meetings and Forecast Meetings). However, participation in the Forecast Meeting is contingent upon the submission of a pre-meeting forecast. Additionally, representatives from Semiconductor Industry Associations are invited to attend as observers. During registration, attendees must declare their role for the meeting.
Certain detailed information such as the agenda, the list of participants etc. is only accessible to holders of WSTS user accounts and/or to registered participants. If you have registered but do not have a WSTS user account, you may login to this meeting web site (right upper corner) with your registration ID as user name and your last name as password.
Non-member semiconductor companies that are interested in joining WSTS may send a representative to attend the Committee Meeting as an observer. Such requests are to be made to the WSTS Administrator.
