IMAPS 6th Topical Workshop on
Packaging of MEMS and Related Micro-Nano-Bio Integrated Systems

November 18 – 19, 2004
Hyatt Regency Hotel
Long Beach, CA 90802
Rates: Single/Double $165;
Business Plan $185; Regency Club: $200
Housing Deadline: October 8, 2004

General Chair:
Ajay P. Malshe, HiDEC-MEEG, University of Arkansas

Sponsored by:
International Microelectronics And Packaging Society (IMAPS)

In conjunction with the IMAPS 2004 Symposium – November 14 – 18*
*visit for details on IMAPS 2004

Packaging and integration of MEMS and related Microsystems, integrated nano systems, and recent bio systems are subjects of immense interest to diverse application areas such as micro optical switches, RF, pressure and vibration sensors, gyros, microfluidic devices, bio-MEMS, quantum optical detectors, etc. The subject interests various scientists, engineers, managers and investors striving for advanced and next-generation products and leadership.

The last five successful annual workshops focused on MEMS, related micro and nano systems packaging challenges and broad opportunities. The objective of the current workshop is “application-specific” MEMS and related micro-nano-bio devices and their application-specific packaging schemes, unlike IC packaging. Another objective is introduction to novel topics related to “nano, bio and integrated packaging.”

Application-specific packaging demands can seriously affect everything from chip to system, in particular designs, processes, materials, packaging schemes and cost of the product. In the core packaging arena it demands diverse designing, fabrication, testing, handling, etc., requirements such as designing of multisignal systems, tailoring environmental-specific package surfaces and interfaces, wafer-scale encapsulation, dicing, release, stiction, bonding stress, vacuum packaging, etc.
