The International Microelectronics Assembly and Packaging Society (IMAPS) and IPC will host a Workshop to discuss and promote strategies to improve On-Shoring Advanced Packaging and Assembly, July 10-12, 2023, in Washington, DC. This workshop will bring Government agencies, the DIB (Defense Industrial Base) and Advanced Packaging and Assembly providers together to discuss their efforts to onshore advanced packaging. The mission of this event is to engage our workforce community to identify the newly created Advanced Packaging programs which address US Government and Defense requirements critical to the onshoring of the microelectronic assembly and packaging supply chain. Government agencies including the Department of Commerce/NIST, DoD (SHIP/IBAS/Title III/Printed Circuit Board Executive Agent), DARPA and SRC will be briefing on their advanced packaging programs.
Under this new partnership, the IMAPS and IPC leadership will work to expand their efforts around onshoring advanced packaging and assembly, and to build upon each organization’s highly successful events held in October 2022. This July workshop will feature two days of focused sessions by invited speakers (Government Agencies, DARPA, DIB, Advanced Packaging and Assembly, Workforce development), a panel discussion, and a variety of networking opportunities.

Cross Functional Team
The event will kick-off on Monday with a pre-program day filled with 2-hour professional development courses and working groups addressing a variety of topics relevant to the onshoring of advanced packaging.
Technical Chair for the event, Brandon Hamilton with Booz Allen Hamilton stated, “We are excited to bring together packaging and assembly supply chain stakeholders to discuss DoD onshoring initiatives. During the event, attendees will hear from DoD leaders and industry performers on current and future programs and participate in collaborative discussions to inform and address U.S. Government requirements for advanced packaging. This workshop serves as a unique opportunity to interface with multiple levels of Government leadership, the Defense Industrial Base, and Commercial Suppliers, all of whom share a common goal to reshore microelectronics manufacturing.”
