IPC -- Association Connecting Electronics Industries is inviting researchers, academics, technical experts, and industry leaders to submit abstracts for the 2013 IPC APEX Expo.
Awards will be presented for "Best U.S. Paper" for U.S. authors and the "Best International Paper" for authors from outside the United States.
The expo will take place at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, CA. The technical conference will be Feb. 19-21, 2013. Professional development courses will be Feb. 17-18 and February 21, 2013.
Expert presentations are being sought on all relevant design, PCB fabrication, and electronics manufacturing topics. Submissions dealing with lead-free processing, repair and reliability, high-speed PCB laminates and new research in growing areas such as green technology and printed electronics are especially encouraged. A 300-word abstract summarizing original and previously unpublished work covering case histories, research and discoveries must be submitted by May 4, 2012. The submission should describe significant results from experiments, emphasize new techniques, discuss trends of interest and contain a summary of technical and/or appropriate test results.
Course proposals are solicited from individuals interested in presenting half-day professional development courses on printed board design and manufacturing as well as electronics assembly processes and materials. Reimbursement for travel expenses and an honorarium are offered to course instructors.
Technical conference paper abstracts and course proposals are due May 4, 2012.
