IPC Issues Call for Participation for IPC APEX EXPO 2023

IPC is now accepting abstracts for technical paper presentations, technical posters, and professional development courses for IPC APEX EXPO 2023. The technical conference will be held January 21-26, 2023, and professional development courses will take place January 24-26, 2023, at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego.

The industry’s premier conference and exhibition for the electronics industry, IPC APEX EXPO provides presenters and their companies with a notable and cost-effective opportunity to promote their expertise and gain visibility with key engineers, managers, and executives from all segments of the industry worldwide.

To recognize exceptional achievement, the IPC Technical Program Committee (TPC) will select top qualifying papers and one top poster for awards. Awards include “Best of Conference,” “NextGen Best Paper,” “Best Student Research Paper,” and “Best Technical Poster.” 

“We are eager to see the exciting new work from our colleagues in the global electronics manufacturing industry,” said Julia Gumminger, manager, IPC professional development and events. “The technical conference and professional development courses are two forums at IPC APEX EXPO where we can advance in a new era of electronics manufacturing by sharing knowledge from experts in all areas of the industry, including design, materials, assembly, processes, equipment, and Factory of the Future.”

For technical conference paper presentations and posters, IPC seeks abstracts that describe significant results from research experiments, highlight new techniques or materials, and/or discuss cutting-edge trends and challenges facing the electronics manufacturing industry. Conference speakers are entitled to a free one-day conference pass for the day of their presentations. Papers will be published in a proceedings document, and both paper and poster presentations will be delivered in person at IPC APEX EXPO 2023 in San Diego.
