The 21st Electronics Packaging Technology Conference (EPTC 2019) is an International event organized by the IEEE RS/EPS/EDS Singapore Chapter and sponsored by IEEE Electronics Packaging Society (EPS). EPTC 2019 will feature keynotes, a panel session, Invited talks, technical sessions, short courses, forums, an exhibition, social and networking activities. Since its inauguration in 1997, EPTC has developed into a highly reputed electronics packaging conference in the Asia-Pacific and is well attended by experts in all aspects of packaging technology from all over the world. EPTC is now the flagship conference of IEEE EPS in Region 10.
EPTC 2019 Program includes technical presentations contributed by distinguished speakers from industry, academia and research institutions. A complementary conference banquet will be held in Marina Bay Sands, the conference hotel. For easy access to the conference venue and a comfortable stay in Singapore, we have engaged with Marina Bay Sands to offer specially-discounted room prices via here
The Program highlights are as follows:
