Technical conference promises a sure bet at APEX
Feb 04, 2008
A who's who lineup of the major players in the electronic interconnect industry will descend upon Las Vegas, April 1-3, 2008, for the technical conference of the annual IPC Printed Circuits Expo, APEX and the Designers Summit.
Through a competitive abstract review, the best papers from around the world were selected for presentation. In total, 35 sessions and 100 experts will present leading research and findings impacting the industry.
"The technical accomplishments these papers describe are amazing," said Dr. Greg Munie, IPC technical conference director. "But more importantly, the opportunities they reveal are tremendous - the technical payoff they represent is many times the price of admission."
As a prelude to the technical sessions, IPC is honored to have Huang Jianzhong of the People's Republic of China, Ministry of Information Industry (MII), and Patrice Rolett, general manager, Avantec (France). These guest speakers will address China's environmental directive, Administrative Measure for the Control of Pollution Caused by Electronic Information Products (also know as "China RoHS") and the European Union's Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals (REACH) regulation. Attendees will get valuable and timely insight on these regulations and their impact on the future of global electronics assembly.
In the technical sessions, attendees will be privy to the latest on the impact of environmental regulations on their bottom line, lead free and exempt product rework and repair, iNEMI technical updates, high speed and embedded design and fabrication, and alloy/interconnect reliability in a lead free world.
"It's unfortunate there isn't enough time for everyone who'll be at the conference to go to every session; but no matter what their choices, they won't be disappointed!" commented Munie.
