EIPC 50th Anniversary Conference Program Now AvailableApril 13, 2018 | EIPC
Estimated reading time: Less than a minute
The past, the present and the future—these the three elements of EIPC’s 50th anniversary conference being held in Dusseldorf in June this year. Half a century has passed since EIPC was founded in the days when the PCB was more than just a commodity.
There will be a first-class show on June 21–22, when the conference on Day 1 culminates with a visit to Unimicron’s new multilayer factory in Geldern, the Tate Modern of the European PCB industry. This will be followed by a celebration dinner at the 14th Century listed and moated Walbeck Castle.
Day 1 will be the occasion in which Paul Waldner looks back over 50 years in the industry, while Hans Friedrichkreit unveils his metric crystal ball to compete with the imperial one that Walt Custer usually produces. From then on, there will be a wealth of technological discussions on topics such as traceability, PCB 4.0, and halogen-free laminates.
Day 2 is dedicated to flex for 5G, curved and stretchable PCBs, open-source language, organic surface preservatives, and lab-on-PCB technology, as well as the traditional glimpses into developments in applications, chemistries and supply chain management.

If you have never been to Munich, then you are probably not working in the PCB industry. Well, you may be, but then if you have never attended Productronica or Electronica, a bi-annual gathering in Munich of the illustrious companies who are the foundations of it, then that’s a shame.
If you wish to part of another classic event, then please consider joining the EIPC Winter Conference which is to be held over two days the first in the famous Grouparna Football Stadium in Lyon, wherein The Kopster Hotel will be our overnight stay venue; the second will be at the Bugey Nuclear Power Plant.
As we stepped out of the hotel into the drizzling rain, we were relieved that it wasn’t snow. Looking down the escalator into the U2 platform in Munich’s Hauptbahnhof central station early on the morning of Tuesday, Nov. 15 and observing the mass of humanity pushing and shoving to cram into trains to the exhibition centre, it appeared that a significant proportion of the international electronics industry had gathered to attend electronica 2022, co-located with SEMICON Europa and recognised as the world’s leading trade fair and conference for electronics.
It feels like the first day of school. It’s September, and we’re all officially back at our desks, workstations, or kitchen tables. Even Les Vacances is over. Oui, c’est vrai! But instead of facing new teachers, we have to deal with diverse market forces, supply chain issues, and technology that never seems to stop evolving. Of course, that’s what makes this industry so interesting, isn’t it?
Summer is over, and now it's back to work. What better way to ease oneself back into the fray is there than to sit in on an EIPC Webinar on September 14, 15:00 CET? This webinar provides a vital source of information in this fast-changing world of electronics.
