The latest technical research, industry best practices, trending topics, ground-breaking technologies and forward thinking innovations will take center stage throughout the IPC APEX EXPO 2017 technical conference and professional development courses, which will take place February 11–16 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California. Registration is now open here.

In keeping with the event’s theme, “Technology’s Turning Point,” the technical conference will feature approximately 90 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 34 professional development courses that go beyond theory to address real-world problems and provide practical solutions that could be implemented immediately for real-world success.

“Our technical conference is at the heart of technology's turning point. The content, including the latest original research, will set the stage for the electronics industry innovation that will turn our industry toward the future,” said IPC Technical Conference Director Jasbir Bath. He adds, “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 printed electronics. Attendees 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 “The Big Bang Theory - Making Science Cool (and Funny)” by actress, author and neuroscientist Mayim Bialik and “The Future of Drones” by Naval officer, military pilot and Duke University professor, Mary Cummings.
