Early Registration Deadline: June 17, 2011

General Chair:
John Mazurowski
Senior Research Engineer
Penn State Electro-Optics Center
Technical Chair:
Mark Bachman
Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
University of California - Irvine

Organizing Committee:
Dr. Benson Chan, Endicott Interconnect
Mr. Jack Cunningham, Oracle Labs
Dr. Boris Kolodin, GE Lighting Solutions
Dr. Chin Lee, University of California - Irvine

Dr. Kannan Raj, Oracle Labs
Mr. Alex Rosiewicz, EM4 Inc.

Workshop Focus:
This workshop is a joint effort by the International Microelectronics and Packaging Society (IMAPS) and the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers - Components, Packaging and Manufacturing Technology Society (IEEE-CPMT). The focus of the workshop is on optoelectronic packaging. We are moving to an age where:

  • Photons will supersede electrons as the preferred carrier of information.
  • Typical optical waveguides transmit many times more data than electrical wires.
  • Optoelectronic devices (LEDs and solar cells) play a great role in new energy generation and energy saving.

Accompanying this change are global efforts in energy efficiency. Issues in the packaging of any device which translates optical energy to or from electrical / thermal / mechanical energy are the focus of the present workshop.

Wednesday, June 29th

Registration: 1:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Opening Remarks: 1:50 pm - 2:00 pm
Chairs: John Mazurowski, Penn State Electro-Optics Center; Mark Bachman, University of California - Irvine

ITRS Workshop: 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
ITRS Assembly and Packaging Roadmap Working Session
Chair: Bill Bottoms, Third Millennium Test Solutions - ITRS Assembly and Packaging ITWG
Vice Chair: Bill Chen, Aseus - ITRS Assembly and Packaging ITWG

The International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors, known throughout the world as the ITRS, is the fifteen-year assessment of the semiconductor industry's future technology requirements. These future needs drive present-day strategies for world-wide research and development among manufacturers' research facilities, universities, and national labs.

ITRS personnel will hold an assembly and packaging roadmap working session for participants of this workshop: - Presentation on the ITRS working process. - Interactive discussion about optoelectronic packaging activities.

A WebEx conference meeting will be available for participants who cannot be there in person. The log in information will be circulated before the meeting.

Reception: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
