Call for papers - EIPC Summer Conference Dresden, Germany, May 29 & 30 2008

Dresden, Germany | Posted on February 2nd, 2008

The aim of the Summer Conference is to provide a platform for speakers and delegates to exchange information on market conditions and future innovation on interconnection and packaging. Delegates and visitors from throughout Europe will attend this event, offering presenters the opportunity to reach a targeted audience of decision makers and leaders of the international packaging and interconnection industry.

Dresden, A Top Ten Business Location in Germany
The Saxon state capital is not only an attractive metropolis; it has also evolved into an acknowledged and dynamic city of business and science over the past few years. This is easily demonstrated in a very impressive manner by the city's spectacular and successful business setups, continuous economic growth, rising sales figures, substantial expansion of already established enterprises, decreasing unemployment figures, and growing purchasing power as well as its top placement in all famous economic rankings.

The city's economy is based on a wide range of branches. Thus, the decisive impulses for growth and development emanate from the three future-oriented fields of competence: microelectronics/information and communication technology, nanotechnology / new materials, and life sciences / biotechnology. But Dresden also has an exceptional concentration of research institutions. One of the outstanding features of the venue is the close link existing between research and industry which results in superb performances and innovative developments while setting worldwide impulses. Very motivated and highly qualified employees, of whom 55% work in the high tech sector, reinforce this trend.

Conference location
The conference organisers will choose a suitable hotel in the city centre of Dresden as venue for the conference. Dresden Airport is situated about nine kilometers north-east of the city centre. If you want to use public transport, there are S-Bahn, bus and tram connections to take you from the airport to the city centre quickly and inexpensively.

Networking event
This will be an evening dinner in a typical German atmosphere which is included in the conference fee for participants. At the end of the first conference day, all conference participants and, if applicable , their partners are invited to join us for an evening tour and a wonderful dinner. We will leave the hotel by coach for a city tour to view the many historical highlights Dresden has to offer. After the sight seeing tour the participants can enjoy exquisite German cuisine and afterwards the coach will take us back to the hotel.

We invite you to submit a paper for one of the following key topics:

-- Global & European PCB market trends
-- PCB fabrication success and experience
-- Advanced Technology Developments
-- Improved performance in high-temperature and high reliability applications
-- Technology, Processes and Materials for rigid flexible circuits
-- Materials for PCBs
* Material for advanced ML PCBs
* State of halogen free laminate in Europe
-- Lamination (Standard pressing condition,
* Short cycle pressing HDI layers)
-- Multilayer fabrication
* Imaging (conventional and or digital)
