Since 1994, the International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI) has developed a biennial electronics manufacturing technology roadmap spanning a 10-year horizon. An integral part of the roadmap development process is a series of regional workshops.

This year, these workshops are being held as webinars in which the Technology Working Groups (TWGs) will present the current (draft) state of their respective roadmap chapters. Elements such as situational analyses, critical issues, technology needs, and recommendations regarding potential alternative technologies are some of the topics the TWG chapters contain. Webinar participants will have an opportunity to provide feedback to the draft content, as well as offer additional sources to enrich the information. This feedback allows iNEMI to ensure that technology projections are accurate and that regional concerns and issues are included.

This webinar is one of three global meetings intended to solicit input for the 2019 iNEMI Roadmap (meetings are also being held for APAC (Asia Pacific) and EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa).  This webinar will cover all of the Technology Working Group (TWG) chapters.

Preliminary Agenda

This webinar will cover all of the Technology Working Group (TWG) chapters. You are welcome to attend as many of the discussions as you choose. The schedule is below. Once you register, you will be able to join the webinar, leave it, and rejoin as you like.
