IPC Introduces New Conference & Exhibition for Electronics Industry Professionals in India

Oct 04, 2012

 IPC — Association Connecting Electronics Industries® will host a new event in India focused on expanding electronics manufacturing expertise. The inaugural National Conference on Electronics Design, Assembly and Reliability (NCEDAR), will be held at the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, India, December 4–6, 2012.

The new conference and exhibition was created in response to a growing need for a local event focused specifically on the needs of the Indian electronics manufacturing industry.

NCEDAR represents IPC’s commitment to bringing additional services and educational opportunities to India,” says David Bergman, IPC vice president of international relations. “It provides a new venue for industry professionals to expand their skills, share their expertise and find solutions.”

The three-day event will open with a day of workshops targeting critical trends and technology, followed by a two-day conference covering a broad range of technical topics, including design simulation and modeling; electronic components, RF and optoelectronics; advanced packaging;  PCB assembly and manufacturing technology; materials and processing; and reliability and quality control.

In addition, exhibitors will be on-hand at NCEDAR to present equipment, systems and supplies to help attendees solve electronics manufacturing challenges. Special events during the conference will include thought-provoking keynote sessions, as well as a PCB design contest and hand soldering competition.

“From the beginning, we wanted to ensure that local members and experts had a strong voice in the development of NCEDAR,” says Akshinthala Vijayendra, managing director of IPC India. Working together, IPC India, the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore and a technical advisory committee determined the content and direction of the event. The technical advisory committee, chaired by Professor G.V. Mahesh of the Indian Institute of Science, consists of IPC members from universities, OEMs, EMS companies and government agencies in India.

While more than 30 technical papers have been accepted, conference organizers will consider additional submissions through November 1. For more information about requirements for technical paper submission, visit Exhibitor opportunities are still available as well. Details can be found at
