IPC APEX EXPO 2016 Educational Programs Highlight Research, Innovation and Forward Thinking Registration Now Open

Dec 16, 2015

The latest technical research, industry best practices, ground-breaking technologies and forward thinking innovations will take center stage throughout the IPC APEX EXPO® 2016 technical conference and professional development courses, which will take place March 13–17 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Registration is now open at www.IPCAPEXEXPO.org.

In keeping with the event’s theme, “Forward Thinking for Tomorrow’s 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.

Attendees wanting to learn more about best practices in design, lead-free technologies, materials, process improvement, solder joint reliability, PCB fabrication and materials, quality and reliability and more, can choose from 20 professional development courses that go beyond theory to provide practical solutions that could be implemented immediately.

Our wide-ranging educational program features a variety of learning opportunities where attendees can access the latest research and development in the industry and learn more about trending materials, applications and processes such as graphene, printed electronics and 3D printing,” said IPC Technical Conference Director Jasbir Bath. “They can take everything they learn back to their company and put it all to work.”

In addition, IPC APEX EXPO features many free activities, including technical BUZZ sessions, poster presentations, keynotes on “Inventions and Innovations” by inventor and entrepreneur Dean Kamen and “Inside the Rise of the Warbots” by strategist and senior fellow at the New America Foundation, Peter Singer. The highly popular New Products Corridor and the IPC APEX EXPO Hand Soldering Competition will again be featured along with more than 440 of the industry’s top suppliers.

Access to the exhibit hall is free to those who register in advance, a savings of $35 on-site. Attendees who register by January 29, 2016, will save 20 percent off registration fees. In addition, attendees who register for the All-Access Package will save a significant percentage off a la carte options.
