IPC, a global trade association serving the printed board and electronics assembly industries, their customers and suppliers, has issued a call for participation in IPC E-TEXTILES 2019.
Innovators, technologists, materials suppliers, electrical engineers and academicians are invited to submit technical conference abstracts and educational course proposals for the conferences, which will take place in Philadelphia, Pa., September 11, and Munich, Germany, November 12.
Presenters and their companies will have a platform to promote their expertise in e-textiles to key electronic engineers, fashion designers, health and medical suppliers, and managers from the automotive, military and aerospace arenas.
Expert technical papers and presentations are being sought in the areas of reliability, test methods, connectors, design, innovations in materials, mass production, washability and market-specific e-textile technologies.
Prospective presenters must submit a technical conference abstract (about 300 words) summarizing original and previously unpublished work covering case histories, research and discoveries. The abstract should describe significant results from experiments and case studies, emphasize new techniques, discuss trends of interest and contain appropriate technical test results.
In addition, individuals interested in presenting half-day (three-hour) professional development courses on e-textiles design, manufacturing processes and materials should submit course proposals.
Technical conference paper abstracts and course proposals for IPC E-TEXTILES 2019 are due April 10, 2019, and May 10, 2019 for IPC E-TEXTILES Europe 2019. Email Chris Jorgensen, IPC director of technology transfer, ChrisJorgensen@ipc.org.
