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.

The IMAPS European chapters organize national and international seminars, workshops and conferences, the flagship event being the EMPC, which is held every odd year interleaved with ESTC every even year with mutual access to both events.
