IPC is now accepting abstracts for technical papers with presentations, posters, and professional development courses at IPC APEX EXPO 2025. The technical conference will be held March 18-20 and professional development courses will take place March 16-17 and 20, 2025 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, Calif.

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. Topics for technical conference papers, technical posters and professional development courses include: advanced packaging/components, assembly and test processes, design, electronic assembly materials, emerging technologies, Factory of the Future, HDI, µHDI and substrates, PCB fabrication and materials, power electronics, quality and reliability, and sustainability for electronics.

To recognize exceptional achievement, the IPC Technical Program Committee (TPC) will select the 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 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. All submissions must be non-commercial, summarizing original and previously unpublished work covering case histories, research, and discoveries. Conference speakers and presenters are entitled to a free one-day conference pass for the day of their presentations and are eligible for discounted rates if they wish to register themselves for the full conference. Papers will be published in a proceedings document, and both paper and poster presentations will be delivered in person at IPC APEX EXPO 2025 in Anaheim. Deadline for technical paper abstract submissions is September 6, 2024.  

All posters will be displayed on the exhibit floor, with dedicated poster networking sessions for increased visibility. Authors of posters selected for the conference will receive further guidance on formatting, printing, and displaying posters. The deadline for technical poster abstracts is October 4, 2024.

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 3-hour session or two 3-hour sessions (offered as Part 1 & Part 2 for a total of 6 hours). Honoraria and travel expense stipends are offered to professional development instructors. Professional development abstracts are due September 6, 2024.
