“These workshops help us globalize the roadmap’s perspective, making sure that regional issues are addressed in the final document. It also gives workshop participants a ‘first look’ at some of our key projections and predictions.”
Herndon, VA (PRWEB) May 7, 2010
The International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI) is scheduling regional workshops to review its 2011 Roadmap. Meetings will be held during June in Las Vegas, Nevada; Taoyuan, Taiwan; and Leuven, Belgium.
“Work on the roadmap chapters will be at about the midway point in June, and we find this is a good time for an industry review. It helps us identify and make any mid- course corrections that may be necessary before the chapters are completed,” said Chuck Richardson, roadmapping director for iNEMI. “These workshops help us globalize the roadmap’s perspective, making sure that regional issues are addressed in the final document. It also gives workshop participants a ‘first look’ at some of our key projections and predictions.”
Registration is free for iNEMI members, speakers and, in some cases, co-sponsors’ members. (See below to link to the individual workshops for details.) The registration fee is US $300, which covers the meeting, including lunch, plus a copy of the 2011 Roadmap CD when it is released to industry in the first quarter of 2011 (a value of US $275).

The International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative’s mission is to forecast and accelerate improvements in the electronics manufacturing industry for a sustainable future. This industry-led consortium is made up of more than 70 manufacturers, suppliers, industry associations and consortia, government agencies and universities. iNEMI roadmaps the needs of the electronics industry, identifies gaps in the technology infrastructure, establishes implementation projects to eliminate these gaps (both business and technical), and stimulates standards activities to speed the introduction of new technologies. The consortium also works with government agencies, universities and other funding agencies to set priorities for future industry needs and R&D initiatives. iNEMI is based in Herndon, Virginia (near Washington, D.C.), with regional offices in Shanghai, China; Limerick, Ireland; and Tokyo, Japan.
