IMAPS - International Microelectronics Assembly and Packaging Society - is a global community of microelectronic related engineers, scientists, manufacturers, end-users and supply chain companies.
The Society aims to support the development and growth of the Microelectronics and related industries, and to aid the transfer of knowledge and information. This is achieved through networking, seminars, workshops, short courses, publications, webinars and websites.
Members benefit from access to business networking and events at a reduced rate; technical information & receive society newsletters and other publications. IMAPS is the largest Microelectronic Packaging Society in the World !
IMAPS-France (French chapter) is a non-profit organization with 200 members in 2016 from 110 companies or institutes in France and neighbouring countries (Belgium, Switzerland, Morocco, Spain, Portugal). IMAPS-France is one out of the 30 IMAPS chapters throughout the World.
To that end, we organize events each year. In 2017, in French OR English language, these are namely:
We will be glad to see you join us for one of these events.
Following the success of the Power Electronics Workshop organized over the past 8 years in partnership with GREMAN (UMR 7347) and Polytech-Tours, sponsored by ST-Microelectronics and éolane, IMAPS-France proudly announces the 9th edition of the Power Electronics and Packaging, Technical & International Workshop to be held in Tours, France on October the 11th and 12th, 2017. The city of Tours is located along the scenic Loire Valley which is famous for its castles built along the river. For the fifth time, the event’s scope becomes international and the workshop will be held in English.
Overview: The International Microelectronics Assembly and Packaging Society (IMAPS) will host an Advanced Technical Workshop in Lyon on Microelectronics, Systems and Packaging for Medical Applications on November 22th and 23th, 2017. The workshop will bring together technologists in semiconductor packaging with life science experts interested in applying advanced packaging methods to enable the next generation of medical microelectronic devices. The workshop will provide a venue for presentations and discussions focused on traditional and emerging packaging technologies for wearable, portable and implantable devices, medical instrumentation, and life sciences consumables. Attendees and Exhibitors will be exposed to a wide variety of disciplines to encourage new products, discussions and collaborations. This 2-days event will bring together invited experts in the medicine, sensing, microelectronics, and semiconductor packaging.
The 13th European Advanced Technology Workshop on Micropackaging and Thermal management will be held on January 31 and February 1, 2018.
More than ever thermal management remains a crucial constraint in packaging at all levels, in industry technology roadmaps worldwide In particular, the development of the future more electrical aircraft with an installed power of 10 MegaWatts, i.e. an amount 10 times higher than in current commercial aircrafts requires solutions at component packaging level, at PCB level, at equipment level, at system level and at aircraft level. Whatever its place in the industrial scheme may be, every engineer will have a big role to play and will have to be supported by a strong theoretical background provided by Universities.
I hope that the will of sharing experience, technical issues and roadmaps will make this workshop as interesting as the twelve past ones.
