SPEAKER PLANNING INFORMATION

                                    
                                   

Once you have been selected as a speaker for the 54th International Symposium on Microelectronics, the following information on this speaker planning page will be critical as you plan your paper, presentation, and get ready to join us in San Diego in October!  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.

                                     

What to Expect

                      

Keynotes and Panelists:
Keynotes and Panels will be broadcast 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. 

Technical Presentations in Topical Sessions:
Regular technical presentations will be given in topically organized sessions. These speakers will be required to provide: abstracts, full proceedings paper (4-6+ page paper - copyright exchange and it will undergo peer review), presentation slides (to present and publish post conference), a presentation recording/video (TBD), 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 during a pizza lunch. 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 on-by-one in sequence. 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). These speakers will be required to provide: abstracts, full proceedings paper (4-6+ page paper - copyright exchange and it will undergo 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

                      

Proceedings Paper / Manuscript (Due July 9, 2021):

Your four- to six-page proceedings paper with text (and tables/graphs as appropriate) is required by JULY 9, 2021. This paper will be put into peer review by our technical committee to give you feedback to make edits, update technical data, and more inputs. A copyright exchange form is also required.

  • Download the Paper 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.

  • Papers can be emailed directly to info@imaps.org.

  • Speakers will receive their peer review feedback and instructions on/before August 4. 

  • Speakers must finalize their papers and submit FINAL PAPERS for the proceedings on/before August 30. 

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 September 17, 2021

  • 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 & Pizza Lunch.

  • Poster speakers will prepare their posters in a large poster format or by tacking up their slides on-by-one in sequence.

  • 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. 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, proceedings paper (peer reviewed and copyright exchange - see PAPER details above), 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.
