The Workshop emphasis is for practical, high-performance solutionsto meet current and evolving requirements in computing and wireless/telco systems. Single-company product development concepts are acceptable subjects; however, all abstracts will be judged on novel and innovative contributions to the industry knowledge.

Abstracts are being requested in the following areas:

  • Market Drivers: Thermal challenges and drivers combined with market trends, market segment size, cost drivers, and performance and reliability requirements.
  • Thermal Interface Materials and Testing: Developments in thermal materials for high-performance processors, memory, and wireless/telco components and systems. Standards for reliability and testing.  Metallic, metal matrix and polymer matrix materials.
  • High Conductivity Materials: Metallic, ceramic and other composite materials with thermal conductivity equal to or higher than aluminum or copper, as well as thermal expansion closer to that of silicon and ceramic.
  • Device Packaging: Chip-level packaging, including System-On-Package, Multi-Chip Module and Multi-Package Module, thermal/interconnect concerns.
  • Liquid and Phase-Change Cooling: Advances in alternative solutions as well as reliability, serviceability, and availability.
  • Refrigeration Cooling: Presentations on advances in alternative solutions as well as reliability, serviceability, and availability.
  • System Cooling: Component- and system-level thermal management solutions for high-performance computing systems.
  • Data Center Cooling: Studies of cooling provisioning, airflow and temperature distribution, and migration paths from air to liquid cooling.         
  • Military and Aerospace Apps: Thermal management of legacy, emerging, and future military and airborne components and platforms.
  • Telecommunications Systems: Component- and system-level thermal management solutions for high-performance telecommunications systems.
  • Consumer Electronics: Component- and system-level thermal management solutions for stationary and mobile systems, including displays, desktop and notebook computers, and handheld devices.
