RaMP 2017 Focus:
The objective of the RF and Microwave Packaging Workshop is to provide a unique forum that brings together scientists, engineers, manufacturing, academia, and business people from around the world who work in the area of RF and Microwave packaging technologies. This workshop enables discussion and presentation of the latest RF and Microwave technology. To help bring together the international community, this workshop is being co-sponsored by IMAPS-France and will be the continuation of a series of joint workshops on RF and Microwave packaging between IMAPS and IMAPS-France and UK Chapters.

Sessions are being planned and abstracts are being requested in the following areas:

Those wishing to present a paper at the RaMP Workshop must submit a 500 word abstract electronically no later than FEBRUARY 24, 2017, using the on-line submittal form at:

All abstracts submitted must represent original, previously unpublished work. The abstracts should highlight the substrate advancements, materials processing/reliability, design, packaging issues and application. The submission section will aid in grouping the work within these three areas. No formal technical paper is required.

All Speakers are required to pay a reduced registration fee and are required to attend the entire Workshop to maximize opportunities for interaction with registered attendees. All authors and attendees find that this IMAPS Workshop format is a proven forum for informal but highly effective networking between attendees and speakers. If you are having problems with the on-line submittal form, please email Ken Kuang at or call (858)558-6666.
