IPC recently announced that it is inviting engineers, researchers, academics, technical experts, and industry leaders to submit abstracts for IPC APEX EXPO 2022, which will be held at the San Diego Convention Center. Professional development courses will take place January 23, 24, and 27, and the technical conference will take place January 25-27.

A leading 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, awards will be presented for "Best Paper."

Expert papers and presentations are being sought in the following areas: factory of the future implementation; circuit design and component technologies; quality, reliability, test and inspection; enabling future technologies; meeting extreme environments; electronics materials; conscientious engineering; assembly processes; and PCB fabrication and materials. In addition, course proposals are solicited from individuals interested in presenting half-day (three-hour) professional development courses on design, manufacturing processes, and materials.

An approximate 300-word technical conference abstract summarizing original and previously unpublished work covering case histories, research, and discoveries must be submitted. The submission should describe significant results from experiments and case studies, emphasize new techniques, discuss trends of interest, and contain appropriate technical test results.

Technical conference paper abstracts are due June 18, 2021. Professional development course proposals are due July 16, 2021. To submit an abstract or course proposal, visit www.ipcapexexpo.org/cfp.
