IMAPS Florida Chapter


The Florida Chapter of IMAPS is made up of IMAPS members from the Sunshine State and its neighboring states Georgia and Alabama. Meetings rotate across locations throughout the territory and alternate with webinars to be intentionally inclusive of attendees from as many regions as possible within Florida's wide geographical expanse.

Florida hosted the International Symposium on Microelectronics in 2013 and 2015.
