Woo will present his insight on the role of components in enabling consumer product innovations.
Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CEA, said in a statement, "Samsung captures global attention when it launches its dynamic products at the International CES. We all look forward to hearing Dr. Woo share Samsung's vision from across Samsung device solutions, the world leader in advanced semiconductor and display solutions for the IT industry."
