IMPACT 2022 Conference, which is organized by IEEE-EPS-Taipei, iMAPS-Taiwan, ITRI, and TPCA, is the largest gathering of PCB and packaging professionals in Taiwan. This year will be held on Oct. 26th -28th at Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, in conjunction with TPCA Show 2022. For grasping the latest trend, the symposium highlights the theme IMPACT on Empowered Edge Computing", which will explore the latest advances, challenges, and hot topics relevant to advanced research in the packaging and PCB field.

  Edge computing is the unique, distributed computing architecture that brings data storage and computation closer to the data source, which helps to reduce bandwidth usage and latency. Therefore, edge tech plays a crucial role in supporting Internet-of-Things (loT), artificial intelligence (AI), autonomous vehicles, smart healthcare and intelligent cities into practice.

  IMPACT 2022 looks at the future of edge computing and how it will revolutionize the industry. Thus, the organizer will arrange plenary speeches, special sessions, industrial sessions, invited talks, outstanding papers, and poster presentations. Meanwhile, this conference will keep collaborating with international organizations such as ICEP, JIEP from Japan, and iNEMI from the USA in this year's gathering.
