MEMS & Associated Microsystems Workshop Focus:
The objective of the MEMS & Associated Microsystems Workshop is to have a unique forum that brings together scientists, engineers, manufacturing, academia, and business people from around the world who have been working in the area of MEMS and Associated Microsystems. This workshop has been specifically organized to allow for the presentation and debate of some of the latest and hottest technologies related to MEMS technology.

Abstracts are being requested on the following topics:

  • MEMS Gyros & Accelerometers
  • MEMS Sensors & RF Devices
  • MEMS in Harsh Environments
  • Microfluidic and Bio-MEMS
  • MEMS Reliability and Failure Analysis
  • Optical MEMS (MOEMS)
  • Integrating MEMS and NEMS
  • Micromachined Passive Devices
  • MEMS Packaging and Testing
  • Innovative Materials and Processing
  • MEMS Fabrication & Yield Enhancement
  • Polymer and Laminated MEMS Devices
  • System Integration of MEMS Devices
  • Energy Scavenging
  • Thermal Management Devices
  • Smart MEMS

Those wishing to present in a topical workshop of the Device Packaging Conference must submit a 200-300 word abstract electronically IMMEDIATELY, using the on-line submittal form at: No formal technical paper is required. A reproduction-ready two- to six-page concise summary with text (figures and graphs included if necessary) will be required for the abstract booklet on Friday, January 25, 2013. A post-conference USB or CD containing the full presentation material as supplied by authors will be mailed 15 business days after the event to all attendees. Please contact Brian Schieman by email at or by phone at 202-548-8715 if you have questions.

The track Technical Chairs will be choosing select papers from the Conference for inclusion in a post-conference Compendium book or a special issue of the IMAPS Journal of Microelectronics and Electronic Packaging. Speakers wishing to participate in this post-conference publication must submit a the written paper ("Extended Abstract") as noted above.

Device Packaging Exhibit and Technology Show:
IMAPS will hold a concurrent exhibition for vendors and suppliers who support the many aspects of Device Packaging at the related topical areas. This venue features an ideal atmosphere to showcase your products and services to key decision-making professionals in the industry. A maximum of 65 full 8' by 10' exhibit spaces will be available. The Exhibit Hall sold out each year since 2006. Please review the exhibit information or contact Brian Schieman by email at or by phone at 202-548-8715.

Device Packaging Professional Development Courses (PDCs):
For those wishing to broaden their knowledge of device packaging, a selection of half-day courses will be offered on Monday, March 11th, preceding the technical conference. If you would like to participate as an instructor, please submit a description of your short course on-line or contact Brian Schieman by email at or by phone at 202-548-8715 no later than November 16, 2012.

Student Competition sponsored by The Microelectronics Foundation:

The Microelectronics Foundation sponsors Student Paper Competitions in conjunction with all Advanced Technology Workshops (ATWs) and Conferences. Students submitting their work and identifying that "Yes, I'm a full-time student" on the abstract submission form, will automatically be considered for these competitions. The review committee will evaluate all student papers/posters and award at least one student with "best presentation". The selected student must attend the event to present his or her work and receive the award.
