IPC has extended the deadline for IPC APEX EXPO 2023 technical conference and professional development abstracts to Monday, August 8, 2022. The IPC APEX EXPO 2023 technical conference will take place January 24-26 and professional development courses will run from January 21-26.

“Our Technical Program Committee members received multiple requests from authors for more time to prepare and submit abstracts, and we are happy to accommodate by extending our deadline for abstract submission,” said Julia Gumminger, manager, IPC professional development and events. “We look forward to seeing the exciting new work from our colleagues in the global electronics manufacturing industry.” 

The industry’s premier conference and exhibition for electronics manufacturing in North America, 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.

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.

To recognize exceptional achievement, the IPC Technical Program Committee 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.” 

For professional development courses, IPC seeks abstracts for three-hour sessions of live instruction covering all aspects of electronics manufacturing. Courses can be offered as one three-hour session or two three-hour sessions (offered as Part 1 & Part 2 for a total of six hours). Honoraria and travel expense stipends are offered to professional development instructors.
