It is our pleasure to announce that the 18th International Symposium on Microelectronics and Packaging jointed with the 21st International Conference on Electronic Matrials and Packaging (ISMP-EMAP 2019) will be held at Hotel Aqua Palace, Busan, Korea, on November 13-15, 2019. This international conference is organized by KMEPS (the Korean Microelectronics and Packaging Society), and will address comprehensive coverage of recent advances in electronic packaging process and materials. Three days of technical sessions for oral and poster presentations. This will provide an excellent opportunity for researchers and engineers of academic institutes and industries to discuss recent advances and new technology directions. We cordially invite you to submit abstracts for the conference, and look forward to seeing you in Korea.
