Who We Are…

The International Microelectronics and Packaging Society (IMAPS) is the largest society dedicated to the advancement and growth of microelectronics and electronics packaging technologies through professional education and training, interaction with industry and networking amongst professionals and academics. Founded in 1967, IMAPS has professional members in 23 North American chapters and 21 international chapters.

IMAPS Europe comprises 13 independent local IMAPS Chapters that embrace the community of microelectronics packaging engineers throughout Europe. Their members number over 1500 individuals plus additional corporate members in some chapters. Membership is always local to a chapter.
