IMPACT 2018 Conference, which is organized by IEEE EPS-Taipei, iMAPS-Taiwan, ITRI and TPCA, is the largest gathering of packaging and PCB professionals in Taiwan. This year will be held in conjunction with TPCA SHOW 2018 on Oct. 24th-26th at Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center. For grasping the latest trend, the symposium highlights the theme "IMPACT on Artificial Intelligence - Our Future" toward intelligent innovations, which fall into several areas: automobile electronics, smart application, robot, drones, autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, Micro LED, 5G and IoT devices. Each application influences a large impact in our daily live. Moreover, plenary speeches, special sessions, invited talks, sponsored industrial sessions, posters and outstanding paper presentations will be arranged. IMPACT Conference keeps collaborating with international organizations such as ICEP and JIEP from Japan and iNEMI from U.S.A. We hope this conference will become a remarkable platform to show your technology research and capability.
