Message from the General Co-Chairs...
After two successful meetings abroad held in Munich and Tokyo, it was decided to take the International Conference on Ceramic Interconnect and Ceramic Microsystems Technologies (CICMT) back to Germany. This year the CICMT will be held in the capital of the state Thuringia which is also called the Green Heart of Germany. Thuringia itself has a long history in the glass and ceramic industry including the production of electro ceramics dating back to the late 19th century.

The conference is organized under the joint sponsorship of the International Microelectronics And Packaging Society (IMAPS),The American Ceramic Society (ACerS), IMAPS Deutschland, the Institute of Micro- and Nanotechnologies MacroNano® of Ilmenau University of Technology, the Deutsche Keramische Gesellschaft (DKG) and Mikro-Nano-Thüringen e.V. This year’s CICMT runs in conjunction with the 3rd International MacroNano-Colloquium sponsored by the Thuringian Ministry of Education, Science and Culture. The colloquium program fills the last half day with an emphasis on functional materials and high frequency characterization.

We thank our session chairs, who were very active and successful in recruiting speakers from all over the world. Thanks to their commitment we have three days filled with more than 120 papers and posters.

In addition we’d like to thank the technical co-chairs, Marija Kosec (Jozef Stefan Institute), Soshu Kirihara (Osaka University) and Alexander Michaelis (Fraunhofer IKTS), the IMAPS staff, the conference management team of Ilmenau University of Technology and the CICMT local committee: Andreas Roosen (University of Erlangen-Nuremberg), Heinz Osterwinter (HS Esslingen), Jörg Töpfer (FHS Jena),Torsten Rabe (BAM Berlin), Sebastian Brunner (EPCOS), Thomas Bartnitzek (Micro-Hybrid Electronic GmbH), and Rubén Perrone (MSE GmbH) for their support and leadership in putting this program together.

This year's keynote speakers will focus on the electro-ceramic traditions in Thuringia and the perspective of electro-ceramics in Japan and Europe.
