Abstract Deadline Extended: April 18, 2014
Early Exhibit Deadline: March 28, 2014
Early Registration and Hotel Deadline: September 12, 2014

The 47th International Symposium on Microelectronics is being organized by the International Microelectronics Assembly and Packaging Society (IMAPS). The IMAPS Technical Committee seeks original papers that present progress on technologies throughout the entire microelectronics/packaging supply chain. The 47th Symposium on Microelectronics will cover three tiers of electronics: Systems and Applications; Design and related measurements; and Materials, Process and Reliability. IMAPS 2014 will feature 6 technical tracks that span the two and a half days of sessions on: INTERPOSERS & 2.5/3D PACKAGING; THE FUTURE OF PACKAGING; ADVANCED PACKAGING, INTERCONNECTS & ASSEMBLY; MATERIALS & PROCESSES; MODELING, DESIGN, & TEST; and SPECIAL SESSIONS ON SYSTEM-INTEGRATION, POWER & HIGH-RELIABILITY, as well as an Interactive Student Poster Session.

Technical sessions are being planned for these tracks, and abstracts will be considered on the topics listed below. Abstracts are rated by the technical committee members and are selected into the sessions by the session chairs appointed by the technical committee. Authors should identify their preferred session (topical area) when submitting their abstracts. Abstracts should highlight the major contributions of the work in one or more of these areas. All abstracts submitted must represent original, previously unpublished work.

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..
