This workshop is organized each year by IMAPS to promote discussion of leading-edge developments in thermal management components, materials, and systems solutions for removing, spreading, and dissipating heat from microelectronic devices and systems. The Workshop emphasis is for practical, high-performance solutions to meet current and evolving requirements in computing, telcom, and power semiconductor devices and systems. 

This Advanced Technology Workshop (ATW) and Tabletop Exhibition on Thermal Management has been held since 1992 and is considered to be one of the most successful of the IMAPS workshops held each year. The 2009 Workshop featured 35 technical presentations, five of which were competition-selected presentations from university engineering graduate students.

Directions/Transportation

From/To San Jose Airport:

The Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) http://www.vta.org/ operates the Airport Flyer, a free shuttle bus http://www.vta.org/schedules/SC_10.html which operates every 15 minutes. The bus stops twice at the airport, once at Terminal A (actually a little bit east of Terminal A, to the right of and across the street from the building with the landing gates and to the left of and on the same side of the street as the building with baggage claim.

The stop for Terminal C is across from the exit from baggage claim, a little bit to the west, left after exiting. Be sure to get on the Westbound bus going to Santa Clara Transit Center, not the Eastbound bus to Metro/Airport Light Rail Station. This is also the same stop as the shuttle buses for Long Term Parking and Rental Cars, so avoid those buses as well. The Westbound bus schedule http://www.vta.org/schedules/SC_10WE_WK.html is also posted on signs at the bus stops.

At the Santa Clara Transit Center, go to the stop for bus number 22 http://www.vta.org/schedules/SC_22.html Westbound to Palo Alto, being sure to avoid riding the 22 Eastbound to Eastridge. The stops for Westbound 22 to Palo Alto and Eastbound 22 to Eastridge are at different locations, so be sure to wait at the correct stop. The bus runs about every 12 minutes http://www.vta.org/schedules/SC_22WE_WK.html and a schedule is also posted at the bus stop. The bus ride costs $1.75 and no change is given, so be sure to have exact fare.

The bus ride takes about 45 minutes. The hotel is located at 4290 El Camino Real, Palo Alto CA 94306, just across the street from Dinah's Court. After stopping at a major bus terminal at El Camino Real and Showers Drive, next to a large shopping center, the bus will pass San Antonio Road, Del Medio Avenue, Cesano Court (there will be a bus stop at Cesano Court), Monroe Drive and Dinah's Court. The nearest bus stop is just after Dinah's Court, pull the cord to inform the driver that you wish to stop after passing the Cesano Court bus stop. Between San Antonio Road and Dinah's Court the bus will pass the San Antonio Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Country Inn Motel, Motel 6 and Oak Motel on the right before the bus stop at Dinah's Garden Hotel. The Crowne Plaza Cabana is directly across the street from Dinah's.

From/To San Francisco Airport:

The San Francisco subway system, Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) http://bart.gov/ has a station in the International Terminal. The trip from the airport to Millbrae station takes 11 minutes and costs $1.50.

From the airport, take the train four minutes to the first stop, San Bruno. At San Bruno, change to the train across the platform for Millbrae. There is only a four minute wait. From San Bruno to Millbrae requires five minutes. Trains operate every 15 minutes most of the day, detailed schedules are found at http://bart.gov/schedules/index.aspx

From Millbrae, the next ride is on Caltrain http://caltrain.org/ to Palo Alto, which takes 30 or 32 minutes mid-day (longer on evenings and weekends) and costs $4.00. Be sure to ride the Southbound train toward San Jose and not the Northbound train toward San Francisco. Tickets must be purchased before boarding the train. Schedules are found at http://caltrain.org/timetable.html

From Palo Alto Transit Center, go to the stop for bus number 22 http://www.vta.org/schedules/SC_22.html Eastbound to Eastridge. The bus runs about every 12 minutes http://www.vta.org/schedules/SC_22EA_WK.html and costs $1.75. No change is given, so be sure to have exact fare. The bus ride takes about 16 minutes. The bus will pass Page Mill Road, Super 8 Motel, Creekside Inn and Townhouse Inn on the right, then cross Arastradero Road, then pass America's Best Value Inn and Days Inn. The Crowne Plaza Cabana will be on the right with a bus stop in front. Please pull the cord to inform the driver that you wish to stop shortly after passing the bus stop near Arastradero Road.
