Herndon, VA — March 26, 2010 — The International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI) will hold the Asia workshop for its 2011 Roadmap on June 8, 2010, in Taoyuan, Taiwan. The event is hosted by TPCA (Taiwan Printed Circuit Association) and co-sponsored by the Taiwan Semiconductor Industry Association (TSIA), Advanced Microsystems and Package Technology Alliance (AMPA) and Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA) Taiwan.
“This workshop will give participants an advance look at select roadmap chapters,” said Chuck Richardson, director or roadmapping for iNEMI. “It will also allow us to get a ‘reality check’ on chapter content and, in particular, to assure that any specific regional issues or concerns are addressed.”
The all-day meeting will be held at the TPCA building in Dayuan. Registration is 270 USD prior to May 11, and 300 USD after that date. iNEMI and TPCA members can attend for free, and members of the co-sponsoring organizations (TSIA, AMPA and SMTA Taiwan) receive a discounted rate of 180 USD (200 USD after May 11).
Roadmap participants will have online access to hard copies of all presentation materials from the workshop, and attendees who pay a registration fee will receive a free copy of the roadmap when it is published in the first quarter of 2011 (a value of 325 USD outside North America).
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.
