Accepted papers may be considered for publication in the IMAPS Journal of Microelectronics and Electronic Packaging.

Submit Abstract(s)

Call for Academic Research Posters:
In addition, Posters are sought showcasing related work for a dedicated one-hour "Academic Research Session". Besides providing an A1 Poster Display for static presentation and further discussion, each presenter will also have the chance to make a short, high-impact presentation to attendees (5 minutes), during the one-hour "Academic Research Session". This opportunity is unique to IMAPS-UK events.

Student Paper/Poster Competition sponsored by The Microelectronics Foundation:

The Microelectronics Foundation sponsors Student Paper Competitions in conjunction with all Advanced Technology Workshops (ATWs) and Conferences. Students submitting their work and identifying that "Yes, I'm a full-time student" on the abstract submission form, will automatically be considered for these competitions. The review committee will evaluate all student papers/posters and award at least one student author with a $1,000 check at/after the ATW/Conference. The selected student must attend the event to present his or her work and receive the award.
The Microelectronics Foundation


Awards will be given in the following categories: Best Paper & Best Academic Research Session Presentation. In both cases, the winners will also receive an invitation to attend the next IMAPS-UK annual conference “MicroTech”, free-of-charge.
