iNEMI Roadmap Workshop Scheduled June 1 in North America
Meeting coincides with ECTC in Las Vegas
Herndon, VA May 10, 2010 The International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI) will review work to date on its 2011 Roadmap at a workshop in Las Vegas June 1. The one-day meeting will review information from all of the roadmaps technology chapters and allow participants to comment and provide input.
"These regional workshops are an important part of the roadmap development process, said Chuck Richardson, iNEMI director of roadmapping. They allow the Technology Working Groups, or TWGs, to test drive their chapters. TWGs present highlights of their respective chapters, share projections and conclusions, and identify areas where technology development is needed. Workshop participants not only get a preview of the information, but also provide valuable feedback that helps improve content. This is one of three workshops being conducted internationally this June.
Workshop registration is free for iNEMI members and for speakers. The registration fee is US $300, which covers the meeting, including lunch, plus a copy of the 2011 Roadmap CD when it is released to industry in the first quarter of 2011 (a value of US $275). Workshop participants will have online access to hard copies of all presentation materials from the workshop.
Additional workshops are scheduled in:
- Asia (June 8)
- Europe (June 16)
The International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative’s mission is to forecast and accelerate improvements in the electronics manufacturing industry for a sustainable future. This industry-led consortium is made up of approximately 100 manufacturers, suppliers, industry associations and consortia, government agencies and universities. iNEMI roadmaps the needs of the electronics industry, identifies gaps in the technology infrastructure, establishes implementation projects to eliminate these gaps (both business and technical), and stimulates standards activities to speed the introduction of new technologies. The consortium also works with government agencies, universities and other funding agencies to set priorities for future industry needs and R&D initiatives. iNEMI is based in Herndon, Virginia (near Washington, D.C.), with regional offices in Shanghai, China; Limerick, Ireland; and Tokyo, Japan.
