IMAPS 2020 Transitions to Virtual Format

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC, July 14, 2020 -- The 53rd International Symposium on Microelectronics, IMAPS 2020, will be moving to a virtual environment from October 5-8. The Symposium will no longer take place in San Diego, California.

IMAPS has been closely monitoring the business, regulatory, and health climate surrounding COVID-19. After several months of discussions and evaluations between IMAPS leadership, event partners, and stakeholders such as exhibitors and speakers, organizers reached the conclusion that a safe and successful Symposium was no longer feasible in an in-person environment.

Preparations are well under way to launch a Symposium experience that attendees, speakers, and exhibitors can safely enjoy from home. The theme Enabling a Connected World: Always On! is more relevant than ever as we debut this highly interactive online experience with truly global reach. Attendees can continue to expect the same valuable technical content as our in-person event, including:

The full broadcast schedule, virtual tools, and registration details will be announced soon! Stay updated at

This will mark the first time that such a significant change has been mandated of the IMAPS signature event and we anticipate a valuable experience for all involved. The Symposium is expected to return to its traditional face-to-face atmosphere in October 2021 for the 54th International Symposium on Microelectronics.
