Device Packaging Speaker Planning

Device Packaging 2022

SPEAKER PLANNING INFORMATION


Once you have been selected as a speaker for the DPC 2023 conference, the following information on this speaker planning page will be critical as you plan your paper, presentation, and get ready to join us in Arizona in March!  With your commitment to present your work at the Device Packaging Conference, you agree to the deliverables and timeline below and if you cannot meet these expectations you will contact IMAPS at info@imaps.org immediately.


We understand that this conference may be new to many of our speakers, so we understand that you may have many questions about the timeline, process, deliverables, and other responsibilities. Please visit this page often for continuing updates, as well as direct email communications from IMAPS staff. Please ensure that all @imaps.org email addresses are whitelisted in your email settings so that you receive timely communications from IMAPS.


THIS CONFERENCE IS BEING PLANNED TO BE IN-PERSON.


What to Expect


Keynotes and Panelists:
Keynotes and Panels will be presented as plenary sessions (with all conference attendees together). These speaking roles are INVITED ONLY and our conference committee will reach out to those that will be invited into these positions. Specific instructions will be communicated from IMAPS staff as well. Keynote presenters will have 45 minutes for their talks - 40 minutes for the presentation, followed by 5 minutes of questions. Panelists will not be required to provide slides, but rather participate in a moderated conversational session with questions from our moderator, as well as from the audience. 


Technical Presentations in Topical Sessions:
Regular technical presentations will be given in topically organized sessions. Technical presenters will have 30 minutes for their talks - 25 minutes for the presentation, followed by 5 minutes of questions. These speakers will be required to provide: abstracts, "extended abstracts" (2-4 page paper - no copyright exchange or peer review), presentation slides (to present and publish post conference), a short bio, and to register for the conference at the discounted speaker (or student) rate. 


Poster Presentations:
The poster session is planned to be an interactive presentation - held outside overlooking the dessert mountains, during a happy hour (all weather permitting). Posters will be available for viewing by attendees during this session only. Poster speakers will prepare their posters in a large poster format or by tacking up their slides one-by-one in sequence. Speakers will be asked to be near their poster for the full session, and this session will be more interactive with visitors (answering questions, speaking to content on the poster without scheduled start/stop times). These speakers will be required to provide: abstracts, "extended abstracts" (2-4 page paper - no copyright exchange or peer review), poster (or presentation slides to print and tack up on the poster boards), and to register for the conference at the discounted speaker (or student) rate.

Technical Session Speaker Deliverables


Extended Abstracts/Manuscripts (Due February 3, 2023):

Your two- to six-page extended abstract with text (and tables/graphs as appropriate) is required by FEBRUARY 3, 2023. This provides our attendees with more details and data than your initial abstract but keeps the publishing requirements easier and more flexible for you since the file is not archived. No formal technical paper is required. There is no proceedings paper, no peer review, and no copyright exchange.

  • Download the Extended Abstract TEMPLATE (right click and SAVE AS to your computer)

  • The paper should present an unbiased description of a certain method or product, discussing both pros and cons. Both subtle and blatant advertisement of any products or services is in direct conflict with the spirit of the Conference. Examples of the former include repeated references to products or trade names and excessive use of corporate logos and trademarks in graphic illustrations. Photographs of commercial equipment are not permitted unless they add educational value. IMAPS Program Committees desire that all authors and presenters understand unambiguously that overly commercial papers are inappropriate and will not be tolerated; authors are asked to abide by these constraints when preparing their abstracts, papers, and presentations.

  • The language for the IMAPS events and its publications is English, unless otherwise noted.

  • Extended abstracts can be emailed directly to info@imaps.org.





Biographical Information:

A speaker bio and headshot photo will be available to attendees on the event website. Please prepare the following for submission to IMAPS at info@imaps.org on/before March 1, 2023. 

  • Speaker bio
    2-3 sentences about current position, background, and/or education

  • Headshot photo
    Recommended .jpeg file type


Poster Presentation Deliverables


The poster session is planned to be an interactive presentation in our Poster Session & Happy Hour which will be held outside overlooking the dessert mountains, weather permitting. 

See below for poster specifications:

  • Posters will be available for viewing by attendees during this session only.

  • Poster speakers will present on a one-sided poster board - roughly 4ft (tall) x 8ft (wide). 

  • Poster presenters will prepare their posters in a large poster format or by tacking up their slides print-outs one-by-one in sequence. Neither option can exceed the dimensions listed above.

  • Speakers will be asked to be near their poster for the full session, and will be more interactive with visitors (answering questions, speaker to content, without scheduled start/stop times).

  • Poster setup will be roughly 1-2 hours prior to the start of the Poster Session (that Wednesday during the Conference). Boards will be available on a first-come-first-served basis, so speakers can setup on whichever board they like that is available. 

  • These speakers will be required to provide: abstracts, "extended abstracts" (2-4 page paper - no copyright exchange or peer review), poster (or presentation slides to print and tack up on the poster boards), and to register for the conference at the discounted speaker (or student) rate.

  • Further details and instructions will be provided soon.
