The Electronic Components and Technology Conference (ECTC) is the premier international event that brings together the best in packaging, components and microelectronic systems science, technology and education in an environment of cooperation and technical exchange. ECTC is sponsored by the Components, Packaging and Manufacturing Technology (CPMT) Society of the IEEE. The 2016 ECTC will be held at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, during May 31 – June 3, 2016, featuring about 40 technical sessions (oral presentations, interactive presentations, and student posters) with over 300 technical papers covering all aspects of electronic packaging and interconnect technology, 16 professional development courses, a panel discussion, a plenary session, a CPMT Seminar, and a technology corner for exhibitors.
The technical program contains papers covering leading edge developments and technical innovations across the packaging spectrum. Topics include advanced packaging, modeling and simulation, optoelectronics, interconnections, materials and processing, applied reliability, assembly and manufacturing technology, components and RF, and emerging technologies. Both poster and presentation formats are used. Special papers presented at the ECTC will be awarded the Intel Best Student Paper Award and best and outstanding paper awards.
The Professional Development Courses offer state-of-the-art technology reviews and updates in a condensed half-day format. Topics cover a wide range of technologies.
The Panel Discussion, Plenary Session, and CPMT Seminar in the evenings offer a format that allows for ample exchange and dialogue between the presenters and audience. They provide the conference participants the opportunity to gain the insight and perspective of technical and business leaders.
The Technology Corner complements the Technical Program by providing companies the opportunity to exhibit their products and services in an environment that enables discussion and interaction with the managers and engineers attending ECTC.
Registration for ECTC 2016 is now open. The Advanced Program will be available February 11. Last day for hotel discounts is April 29, 2016. Last day for discounted ECTC registration is May 5.
