Dr. Martin Moskovits
Chief Technology Officer API Nanotronics

Prior to joining API Nanotronics Dr. Moskovits was the Dean of Science and Professor of Physical Chemistry at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He also has significant academic and industrial leadership and research experience. Dr. Moskovits¹ research expertise includes the area of nanoscience and nanotechnology with special emphasis on nanosensors and is also known for developing porous anodic aluminum oxide as a template platform for nanotechnology. He serves as Vice Chair of the U.S. Department of Energy Basic Energy Sciences Advisory Committee and was a member of the DOE advisory committee on the establishment of the DOE's five nanocenters.

French Chapter Annual Conference/Exhibition, Toulouse, September 25-26, 2007   ^ Top
The organisation of INTERCONEX 2007 in the Ville Rose is now well engaged.

As expected, the favourable intellectual, technological and industrial environment met an exceptional adhesion of the exhibitors. So we are already sure of a first success with all the available booths (52) sold, in April, more than five months before the event.

The “Centre Pierre Baudis” premises allow us to organize the conference in a close vicinity of the exhibition hall. Under the title Packaging et Interconnexion dans les Systèmes Embarqués, the technical programme will be dedicated to new developments as well as industrial experience returns, in the field of packaging for on board equipments. It will be organized in five sessions, including a total of 34 papers.

In the morning of Tuesday, September 25, the opening session (four papers) will be dedicated to road maps and prospective R&D presentations. In the afternoon, Session “A” will be entitled “Innovative Sensors, as an interface of Smart Systems”. This nine papers session is a partnership of IMAPS with GIXEL (the French trade pool for the Interconnection of Electronic Components) and the LAAS (Laboratoire d’Analyse et d’Architecture des Systèmes). In parallel with the session “A” the session “B” (four papers) will be dedicated to “Experience returns on RoHS and Materials” and the session “C” will offer three papers on “design and Inspection”. In the morning of September 26, the session “D” “On board applications” will be shared in “On board avionics applications” (three papers) and “On board automotive applications” (four papers). Finally, in the session “E”, six papers will be dedicated to hard environment stress applications.

The close vicinity of the conference rooms with the exhibition will help fruitful exchanges between the auditors, the exhibitors and the visitors. For registration or information:
