IMAPS UK, in partnership with the Torbay Hi-Tech Forum, bring you the 2nd International Conference on Packaging Technology for the Photonics and the Opto components and systems industry.

The conference will meet the needs of those involved with the design of systems, development of components as well as users and will address issues of placement of die and components, Die and component Packaging for emerging

Optoelectronic technology applications. Interconnection technologies will be a key feature of the presentations and the event will offer the opportunity to learn about emerging Photonics and Opto Technology, Process tools and flows, Materials and equipment selection/options as well as the Design – Industrialisation aspects that are now required.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from and network with experts, share thinking with peers and meet our Exhibitors from the Packaging Supply Chain at the co-located exhibition. This conference aims to bring together an array of electronics systems, material, process and packaging experts as well as service providers to present a comprehensive review of the spectrum of Optoelectronics engineering.

Call for Posters

IMAPS-UK is providing a unique Poster Presentation opportunity to Academia as well as Industry based students in Session 2 of the conference.  Each Poster selected will be required to give a 5 minute “Elevator” presentation to the conference, along with displaying the Poster during the whole of the day, to take advantage of discussing the contents with delegates during the networking sessions.

Appropriate Poster presentations should be focussed on Photonic and Opto Technology covering packaging issues in: IoT, 5G, FTTH, Data management and Communications applications;  Relevant Nano and Microelectronic research developments in LEDS and Lasers and Luminaires;  Fibre-optics, Bio-photonics, PICs and RF interfacing;  Advanced Manufacturing Technologies for photonic components and systems.

Abstracts should be submitted to IMAPS-UK ( by 14th SEPTEMBER latest. Places are limited to a maximum of 12 posters only.
