Canadian printable electronics event seeking papers


The Canadian Printable Electronics Industry Association (CPEIA) is now accepting paper and presentation proposals for the nation’s premier annual industry event to be held next year. This marks the first year that the CPEIA will be hosting the Canadian Printed Electronics Symposium, as the workshop-style event takes place in Montreal, April 21-22, 2015.

The CPEIA is hosting the Symposium in partnership with the National Research Council of Canada and Quebec’s Printability and Graphic Communications Institute (Institut des communications graphiques et de l’imprimabilité ICI). CMC Microsystems and other stakeholders are also active on the organizing committee.

The Symposium brings together stakeholders in Canada’s Printable Electronics (PE) ecosystem from industry associations, academia, manufacturing, printing and key end-user verticals such as aerospace, automotive and packaging. Its focus is to inform participants about emerging Canadian technologies and end user applications of PE.

“The annual Symposium is the ideal venue for stakeholders from across the industry to network, share ideas and forge the linkages for collaboration and business development that will make Canada a global powerhouse in this exciting emerging sector,” says Peter Kallai, executive director of the CPEIA.

Criteria and deadlines

Presentation and paper proposals may be submitted by Canadian and international researchers and industry professionals. The deadline for submission is January 31, 2015. The selection committee will advise if you have been selected for a presentation by February 28, 2015, to allow you to prepare the paper or presentation. All presentations and papers must be received well before the Symposium, no later than April 10, 2015, to be included for electronic distribution.

All proposals must include a 300-word summary abstract, and the name, affiliation, title, email and telephone number of the proponent. Please submit your proposal and information to 2015cpeconference@cpeia-acei.ca.
