The 54th International Symposium on Microelectronics is being organized by the International Microelectronics Assembly and Packaging Society (IMAPS). The IMAPS 2021 Technical Committee seeks original papers that present progress on technologies throughout the entire microelectronics/packaging supply chain. The Symposium will feature 5 technical tracks, plus our Interactive Poster Session, that span the three days of sessions with emphasis on packaging technologies that serve 5G, High Performance Computations, Automotive, Industrial, Defense/Space, and Medical electronics markets.

IMAPS is consulting government agencies, event partners, and our stakeholders regarding the Covid-19 virus ahead of IMAPS 2021 San Diego. We will keep attendees informed of any effects to the event. IMAPS remains committed to delivering the best Symposium this Fall and anticipates a robust, healthy event for all of our attendees, speakers, and exhibitors. We are exploring all options for alternative conference plans including virtual presentation options and other online tools in the event that the in-person components of the Symposium are deemed unsafe or not possible and will be prepared to offer all in-person, virtual and/or blended meeting options for all.

INTERACTIVE POSTER SESSION - "Posters & Pizza Lunch"

Technical sessions are being planned for these tracks, and abstracts will be considered on the session topic listed below. Abstracts are rated by the technical committee members and are selected into the sessions by the session chairs appointed by the technical committee. Authors should identify their preferred session (topical area) when submitting their abstracts. Abstracts should highlight the major contributions of the work in one or more of these areas. All abstracts submitted must represent original, previously unpublished work.


If your abstract is selected, you will be asked to follow the speaker timeline: - Speaker Acceptance/Rejection (June 14, 2021); - First Paper to Peer Review (July 9, 2021); - Peer Review feedback to authors (August 4, 2021); - Final/corrected Papers (August 30, 2021); - Speaker must register before (September 10, 2021); - BIO due (September 17, 2021); Speaker Breakfast (morning of your session); and - Slides/Presentation ready (on/before October 8, 2021).
