IMAPS Society Awards Nominations Due Next Friday, August 15 - It's Up to You to Nominate that Deserving Member!     ^ Top
We have many deserving members who have given their time and energy, and expertise to ensure our industry has a robust future. You can make sure they are recognized by nominating them for one of our prestigious awards – it must start with you! These dedicated individuals cannot be recognized with an Award unless a member nominates them.

The seven awards presented annually are: the Daniel D. Hughes, Jr. Memorial Award; the William D. Ashman Achievement Award; the John A. Wagnon Technical Achievement Award; the Fellow of the Society Award; the Corporate Recognition Award; the International Award; and the Outstanding Educator Award. The Lifetime Achievement Award is also an individual award, but will be awarded only occasionally when a deserving individual is identified and nominated.

Nominations and supporting materials must be received by August 15, 2008. Award nominations can be submitted on-line, or by contacting Steve Greene, Membership Manager, at IMAPS headquarters 202-548-8711 or sgreene@imaps.org. The Practices and Procedures governing the awards can be found online at http://www.imaps.org/leadership/PP/Sections/Section16.pdf.

There are few things we each value more than the recognition of our peers. This is your chance to recognize a deserving member with the prestige of an award – and only you, the membership, can do that. You have the keys to a vital part of our professional network – and your actions in recognizing other members’ accomplishments are key to making IMAPS much more valuable to us all!

Micro Systems : Design to Manufacturing

The IMAPS INDIA Chapter is organizing an International Conference on “Emerging Microelectronics and Interconnection Technologies, EMIT-08”- from December 16 to 18, 2008, at Bangalore, India. A pre¬conference one day Tutorial / Workshop on latest technologies such as MEMS, MEOMS, VLSI Design, Hybrid Microelectronics is planned on December 15, 2008.

The Research & Development activities in Miniaturization, Design, Production Processes, Packaging and Applications of Monolithic, Thick and Thin Film Hybrid Microelectronics, Nano Electronics and Molecular Electronics, have made tremendous progress in the past decade. The VLSI Technology has given way to ULSI, and has already reached Nano¬metric scale (nm), 65 nm levels in production and less than 45 nm levels in R & D.

IMAPS India Chapter has been successfully organizing National and International Conferences in these areas and has received very good response earlier. EMIT 1996, 1998, and 2000 at Bangalore and all National Conferences held every year at various cities in India have seen very enthusiastic participation from leading Research & Academic Institutions and Industry.

To continue this tradition and to showcase all the new developments in the areas of Micro, Nano Electronics and allied fields, IMAPS India Chapter is organizing this International Conference, with the theme of Micro Systems: Design to Manufacturing, giving an opportunity to all researchers, academia and industry leaders to exchange latest information. Prior to the conference one day Tutorial / Workshop is scheduled by experts in the appropriate areas.

These events provide an excellent opportunity to the Scientists, Engineers, Technologists, Academicians and Industrialists to present papers and discuss in the areas of Microelectronics, Nano Electronics, Molecular Electronics & Electronic Packaging. The EMIT-08 will cover the presentations of the results of Research Findings, Developmental activities, Production Planning, Manpower Training, Establishment of Facilities, as well as, exchange of ideas on the state-of-art topics.

The venue of the Conference is at within idyllic surroundings providing an excellent ambience and ensuring good exchange of ideas and innovations as it is located at the highly rated Academic Institute in India.

First “CALL FOR PAPERS”:

Authors were invited to send original, unpublished papers for the EMIT-08 until July 31, 2008. If you are still interested in submitting an abstract of 300 to 500 words on any of the topics mentioned below, email (imapsind@vsnl.com) immediately. For more information, visit www.imapsindia.org.

Invited Talks / Special Talks:

Conference will also have Invited Talks from Experts in Specific Areas of Topical Interest. Some selected papers presented at other IMAPS Conferences in 2008 will also be invited to be presented at EMIT 2008 for the larger benefit of participants who could not attend them.

IMAPS France - 4th European ATW on Micropackaging and Thermal Management    ^ Top
The French Chapter of IMAPS will hold its 4th European Advanced Technology Workshop on Micropackaging and Thermal Management on February 4-5, 2009, at Mercure Oceanide, Vieux Port, Sud La Rochelle.

The workshop will be dedicated to the thermal management and particularly to convenient cooling solutions for high integration level of equipments. Rising speed of the components leads to increase the power dissipation while miniaturisation and low cost technologies don't facilitate the mastering of the thermal impedances.

In such conditions, the thermal management, as a part of the packaging solutions, is and will continue to be one of the main technological keys for the future progress of the electronic components.
 
The workshop's sessions will include the following topics and papers are invited in these areas:
 
  • Cooling for microelectronics packaging
  • Microcooling solutions
  • Heat condcutive materials
  • Chip, board and system thermal management
  • Thermal modelisation and simulation
  • Heatsinks, heatpipes and other cooling products
  • Liquid and phase change cooling
  • New cooling solutions
  • Experience return (products and systems cooling, power electronics, automotive, transport,...)
  • Thermal management of opto electronics components  

Deadline for submitting papers is November 5, 2008. Authors must submit a 200-300 word abstract describing their proposed 25 minutes presentation (20 minutes + 5 minutes for questions). For more information, visit www.imapsfrance.org or contact Florence Vireton at imaps.france@imapsfrance.org.
