The second day of the conference opens with keynote speaker Robert Fry of DuPont Corporate Plans, who will discuss the global economic forecast. Other sessions include a look at trends in 3-D packaging featuring Jan Vardaman of TechSearch International; the outlook for the military electronics market with James Libous, Lockheed Martin Corporate Engineering and Technology; and a presentation about the outlook for the PCB industry in China, with Hayao Nakahara of N.T.
