At the 2015 conference we welcomed 606 total participants from 19 countries who contributed to the 2nd highest ever count for DPC. Attendance was up 13% over 2014 (and 20% growth over 2013). Additionally, IMAPS thanked more sponsors than ever, sold out our 10th consecutive exhibit hall (with nearly 20 companies on a wait-list), and enjoyed a successful technical program. All sessions were well attended - standing room only in many rooms, especially our keynotes.

2016 Conference Overview:

The 12th Annual Device Packaging Conference (DPC 2016) will be held in Fountain Hills, Arizona, on March 15-17, 2016. It is an international event organized by the International Microelectronics Assembly and Packaging Society (IMAPS).

The conference is a major forum for the exchange of knowledge and provides numerous technical, social and networking opportunities for meeting leading experts in these fields. The conference will attract a diverse group of people within industry and academia. It provides a chance for educational interactions across many different functional groups and experience levels. People who will benefit from this conference include: scientists, process engineers, product engineers, manufacturing engineers, professors, students, business managers, and sales & marketing professionals.

Featuring 3 Topical Workshop Tracks, with New Changes For 2016:

Those wishing to present their work at the Device Packaging Conference must submit a ~500 word abstract electronically no later than November 20, 2015, using the on-line submittal form at: No formal technical paper is required. A reproduction-ready two- to six-page concise summary ("extended abstract") with text (figures and graphs included if necessary) will be required for the abstract booklet on Friday, January 29, 2016. A post-conference USB containing the full presentation material as supplied by authors will be mailed after the event to all attendees.

Mention IMAPS or IMAPS Device Packaging when booking by phone

Book your hotel reservation today! We have reserved a block of rooms at the host hotel to accommodate our attendees. The discounted room rates are only available until the hotel deadline listed above, or until the room block sells out (and they often sell out early - before the expire dates). Reservations received after the noted deadline or after the room block has been filled may be subject to significantly higher rates. IMAPS room blocks at most hotels historically sell out ahead of the discount deadline, so we encourage you to make your hotel reservations quickly for the best price and availability.

Hotel Scams Alert!
All reservations should be made directly with the hotel and within the IMAPS room block. We are not using a housing company. If any person or firm contacts you and offers to handle your reservations, please beware. They are completely unauthorized and possibly fraudulent. The convention industry is currently plagued by such groups. If you use one of them and experience any problems, including lost deposits and no reservation when you arrive, IMAPS may not be able to assist you. Please be aware in particular of one of these unauthorized firms – Exhibition Housing Services – whose salespeople have falsely claimed to be calling from IMAPS.

The only way to book a room in the official IMAPS Housing Block using the reservations information above.
