Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) June 26, 2006
IMAPS 2006 -- the 39th International Symposium on Microelectronics -- to be held October 8-12, 2006, at the San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, CA, will offer three separate plenary sessions that will focus on key international industries located on the Pacific Coast and in the Southwest US. These sessions are presented in addition to 200+ technical papers, 16 Professional Development Courses, and 50 posters that are also being offered at IMAPS 2006.
These sessions are:
- Wireless, RF and Telecommunications will include technologies for products such as cell phones and base stations.
- Bio-Medical will focus on those technologies for medical uses such as implantable devices and diagnostic machines and imaging,
- Military and Homeland Security will feature the latest research and development result for implementations such as all types of radar systems, bio-detection systems, weapons, etc.
Keynote speakers for these sessions will include OEMs, product manufacturers and special guests who will present the vision for these industries and emerging technologies worldwide. An international slate of speakers will then present new and advanced solutions that support these technologies. These sessions are in addition to the traditionally-superb technical program IMAPS always produces at its symposia.
"Our goal is to draw attention to the specific industries on the Pacific Coast and in the Southwest by introducing the latest and most advanced research and development currently underway that will directly benefit these industries, and offer the full spectrum of international microelectronics technical papers that we traditionally present," stated Steve Adamson of Asymtek, General Chair of the IMAPS 2006 Steering Committee.
Founded in 1967, IMAPS conducts 30 meetings each year that offer a full spectrum of educational and marketing opportunities to the microelectronics and packaging professional. IMAPS symposia, conferences, and workshops feature preeminent presentations of ongoing work in the industry worldwide. Exhibitions and trade shows highlight the latest product and service applications of the current technology. IMAPS meeting attendees are able to meet and exchange ideas and information with the best and brightest professionals in the international microelectronics and packaging industry.
