Message from the General Chair

"Microelectronics - The Bridge To The Future"

On behalf of the IMAPS 2003 Symposium Committee (SymCom_2003) and the IMAPS New England Chapter, I invite all of you to attend the 36th International Symposium on Microelectronics and to visit the preeminent historic, cultural and dynamic city in the US that epitomizes the "The Spirit of America".

This year's symposium will be held at the Hynes Convention Center in Downtown Boston from 16-20th November 2003.

The Technical Subcommittee and The National Technical Committee have assembled an incredible program consisting of Professional Development Courses (PDC) offered on Sunday & Monday, 16th and 17th, November and Technical Sessions offered on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday, 18th-20th November. A half-day FREE PDC is also being offered to registered students only.

The Spouse/Guest program promises exciting forays to the picturesque North Shore, "historic Salem" and interesting Plymouth Plantation areas of Massachusetts.

The Student Subcommittee in addition to sponsoring several students' related activities is also sponsoring a Student Marketing Competition and an Employment Center.

One can see from the above that your SymCom_2003 has completed all of the arrangements that will result in a successful symposium. However, without sufficient support from our Exhibitors, the Symposium would struggle to also be a commercial success - which is a necessity!

With this in view, we will be serving a buffet style luncheon in the exhibits hall to all participants and guests during the exhibit hours. This is per the wishes of our Exhibitors. Attendees please take advantage of this opportunity to visit the exhibits area and stop by as many booths as possible during your stay.

Additionally, we are working with exhibitors to present a "Manufacturers' Demonstration Line" (Demo Line) in the Exhibit Hall and also The "Exhibitor State-of-the-Art Presentations" (ESAP), which will give exhibiting companies a 15-minute session to present, via PowerPoint presentation, whatever products and services they deem important for the assembled audience. These sessions will be held during exhibit hall hours on the exhibit floor.

The improving geopolitical situation and the excellent attendance at the recent NE Annual Symposium are two leading indicators that predict an improving economy. As General Chair I am beseeching all potential Exhibitors to "get with the spirit" and sign on for exhibit booths! Don't get left behind!

The IMAPS 2003 Symposium Committee is working enthusiastically with the National Committee, the NE IMAPS Committee and the HQ staff to make this an exciting and worthwhile endeavor for all.

Come and see how "Revolutionary Things Happen in Boston!" - see you in November.
