francesco caizzone

He was born in Milazzo near Messina, Italy in 1955 and graduated with a degree in electronic engineering from the Polytechnic of Turin, Italy.
He started his professional career in the semiconductor industry in 1980 with Texas Instruments, as product engineer for analog circuits.  A few years later he joined Thomson Semiconductors with the responsibility of sales for the computer market, and finally in 1986 he was promoted Sales Manager for Italy.
In 1988, after the merger of Thomson Semiconductors with SGS-Ates, who gave life to STMicroelectronics,  Francesco decided to move to Catania to take the responsibility of the Power Mosfet  Business Unit.
In 2000 he was promoted Group Central Planning Director reporting to the Discrete and Standard Product  Group General Manager.
In 2005 he was in charge of Operations and Business Management of IMS ( Industrial & Multisegment Sector), he supervised the central planning,  the control of the production activities, the package development and engineering, the Marketing business in the Regions and the Business Units Space & Hi-Rel.
From December 2012 Francesco is General Manager of the ST Catania site.
The ST site of Catania, nearly 4,000 employees, of which 98% with degree or diploma, is one of the main ST’s production and  R&D centers.  In particular,  the site is a key reference point for both discrete and integrated Power Technologies, leveraging on innovation and manufacturing efficiency.

Prof. Frédéric Noël  
Grenoble Institute of Technology – France

Frédéric Noël is Professor of University at Grenoble Institute of Technology in France. Coming from the Mechanical Design disciplines his interests are mainly Computer Aided Design and Collaboratiion assistance for designers. After a PHD about CAD surface meshing techniques he developped researches about multi-view product modelling for collaboration in product development.
Up to date CAD systems and Collaborative tools must take benefit of the newest technologies for connecting design expert into networks. His current projects concerns definition of intuitive design office tools and the efficient deployent of VR and AR within production system practises. Frédéric Noël led a European Research Infrastructure about Visualisation and Interactions. This VISIONAIR infrastructure enabled 121 project within Scientific Visualisation, Virtual Reality and Augmented Collaborative Environments for Research activities, but also Ultra-High Definition networking facilities.

Prof. Emmanuel Duc
SIGMA Clermont France
Prof. Emmanuel Duc

Emmanuel Duc is Professor at SIGMA Clermont in France. His interest is focused on the manufacturing process from CAD/CAM activites to machining and metrology.
First researches are dedicated to tool path computation and CAM optimisation, in ENS de Cachan, France.
After arriving in IFMA / SIGMA, he directed her work to the optimisation of the machine tool behavior for machining operation, in order to propose the best solution according to the part, the machine tool and the machining process requirements.
Such approach is developed to propose sustainable process.
Today, he will apply decision making methods for CAPP application, DFM process and additive manufacturing, to participate to the integration between design and manufacturing.
