Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 21st European Microelectronics and Packaging Conference and Exhibition (EMPC 2017) will be held in Warsaw, Poland, 10–13 September, 2017, and will be devoted to recent developments in the field of microelectronics and packaging technologies, including 3D Integration, Surface Mounted Technology, Chip-on-Board and Flip-Chip Assembly, Embedding, Wafer Level Packaging, Encapsulation, Printed Electronics, Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems, Photonics, High-Frequency, High-Temperature and Power-Electronics, Flexible Electronics, Advanced Materials, Thermal Management, Modelling/Design/Simulation, Reliability and Functional Systems. The advances in these fields are driven by increasing demand for high-performance electronics, which pushing the electronics industry to extend technology limits in terms of higher packaging density, lower cost, lighter weight, and greater performance. The materials related aspects in these fields are very crucial to extend the current limits.

This Special Issue selects excellent papers from EMPC 2017 that are related to materials development. The issue will cover the materials oriented scopes of advanced packaging and interconnects, electronic components assembly, printed, hybrid and flexible electronics, thermal management and functional systems. We invite investigators to contribute original research articles, as well as review articles, to this Special Issue.
