IPC APEX EXPO 2018 Educational Programs Highlight Technology’s Accelerating Speed of Change Registration Now Open, Show Floor More than 95% Sold

Oct 17, 2017

Changing technologies that are driving the electronics industry will take center stage throughout the IPC APEX EXPO 2018 technical conference and professional development sessions, which will take place February 24-March 1 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California. Registration is now open at www.IPCAPEXEXPO.org.

In keeping with the event’s theme, “Succeed at the Velocity of Technology,” the technical conference will feature approximately 80 technical papers detailing original research and innovations from industry experts around the world. Subject-matter experts will cover topics in the areas of board fabrication and design, electronics assembly and test.

“As the importance of automation and data exchange in manufacturing grows at an exponential rate with increasing miniaturization of assemblies and the assembly of new components, the complexity of design increases, so designers and engineers need to keep current. Which is why the industry needs the education that IPC APEX EXPO 2018 will offer,” said Jasbir Bath, IPC APEX technical conference director. “Our programs are not theoretical—they’re grounded in, and driven by, real-world application that’s happening right now. IPC APEX EXPO 2018 attendees will access new research on materials and processes, learn more about trending materials, applications and processes such as Industry 4.0 and wearables and address real-world problems. Industry experts teach the practical to help attendees succeed at their job,” Bath added.

IPC APEX EXPO’s full- and half-day professional development courses will blend traditional electronics industry topics with hot-new developments, delivered by corporate technologists, consultants, training center staff and university faculty. Attendees can choose an array of leading topics such as: PCB fabrication troubleshooting; dispensing/jetting; printing; manufacturing yield, defect analysis, failure analysis; reliability and design for excellence (DFX).

In addition, IPC APEX EXPO features many free activities, including technical BUZZ sessions, poster presentations and an opening keynote on “Game Changers: Technology and the Next Big Disruptions” by founder and director of Google Ideas at Google and now CEO of Jigsaw, Jared Cohen. The highly popular New Products Corridor and a new networking event on the show floor will be featured along with more than 450 of the industry’s top suppliers. Access to the exhibit hall, which is currently 95 percent sold, is free to those who register in advance, a savings of $40 on-site.
