  • The ICSJ2020 steering committee has decided to cancel ICSJ2020 scheduled November 9-11, 2020. It was a tough decision for us, but we had to conclude the cancellation as looked at the current situations affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. We sincerely appreciate all of the contributors who submitted interesting abstracts with latest research results to ICSJ2020. The number of contributed abstracts was reduced from that of last year and resulted in approximately 70% of our target number. Looking at the current social environment, the Japanese government is still continuing immigration control measures, and it is unclear whether invited and contributed speakers can come to ICSJ2020 this November. We have decided not to adopt any remote meeting in principle to maintain the quality of conference, and even if we adopt a remote meeting system from now, we do not have enough time to prepare it. As considered from various perspectives, we decided to cancel ICSJ2020 and focus on holding ICSJ2021 to be scheduled on November 2021. The steering committee of ICSJ2020 will be directly taken over by ICSJ2021 and will make every effort to surely hold ICSJ2021 with any conference style. We sincerely appreciate all of plenary, special session and invited speakers for their kind acceptance of our invitation. We would like to invite you again to ICSJ2021. We thank again for all of the contributors who submitted the abstracts. Towards ICSJ2021, We would like to encourage the contributors to submit the abstract again with some update during the next one year. We also thank those who sponsored us in this difficult situation. We sincerely appreciate your understanding and look forward to meeting all of you at ICSJ2021.

  • The ICSJ2020 website was updated on May 15, 2020.

  • The ICSJ2020 steering committee decided to extend the abstract submission deadline from May 22 to June 30, 2020. The COVID-19 outbreak has not been settled down worldwide yet. In Japan, the declaration of a state of emergency has been extended to the end of this May. We would have to understand that the current situation is still very hard for most of research organizations to submit an abstract by the original deadline. As discussed, we extended the deadline as long as we can align the conference schedule. Some international conferences have adopted remote or hybrid meetings to keep holding the conferences. ICSJ2020 does not intend to adopt any remote meeting because it cannot keep the quality of conference. In principle, ICSJ2020 will be held on-site only. In particular, author interview sessions are a big feature of ICSJ where all session speakers move to the author interview room for interactive discussions right after closing their oral session. Any remote meeting does not keep such productive discussions. Hence, the ICSJ2020 steering committee will make the final decision if we hold the conference as scheduled or not depending upon the number of submitted abstracts and the social environment of the time. The final decision will be announced on the official website promptly. To keep the quality of ICSJ2020, we sincerely hope receiving a sufficient number of contributed abstracts. We would greatly appreciate your kind understanding and continuous support.

"Electronics Packaging for 5G and B5G"


"IEEE CPMT Symposium Japan (ICSJ)" is one of the most widely recognized international conferences sponsored by the IEEE Electronics Packaging Society (EPS) and has been held annually in Kyoto in November. The conference originally started in 1992 as "The VLSI Packaging Workshop in Japan (VPWJ)" and was renamed to "ICSJ" in 2010. ICSJ provides a platform for you to communicate and interact with global leaders in packaging technology. ICSJ2020 is the commemorative event for 10th ICSJ and 19th conference since establishing VPWJ.

Electronics Packaging for 5G and B5G: The 5G commercial services have just began and provide higher transmission rate, lower latency, greater capacity of remote execution, and larger number of connected devices. The 5G advantages will dramatically advance the performance of IoT services, edge computing, virtual reality (VR), autonomous mobility, as well as artificial intelligence (AI). The future mobile network after 5G, which is called as "beyond 5G (B5G)", already started technical discussions. The 5G and B5G services will realize Internet of Everything (IoE) services eventually. In 2020, our focus is on key electronics packaging technologies for next-generation mobile networks and their applications for 5G and B5G services, and emphasizes on the following main topics: Photonics, Advanced Packaging, Process & Material, Power & Automotive Electronics, Bioelectronics, and Sensing Technologies. Additional topics of primary interest to the participants are listed below.

Other topics include (but not limited to):

+ 3D Packaging & Chip-on-Chip

+ Advanced Fine Pitch Packaging, Micro Bumping, CSP

+ Board-Level Integration & Integrated Substrate

+ Laminated Materials & Processing, Materials for Packaging

+ Reliability & Failure Mechanisms

+ Packaging for High-Speed Electrical Interconnect

+ Signal Integrity / Power Integrity

+ RF Components & Modules

+ Additive Manufacturing, 3D Printed Electronics

+ Brain-like Neuromorphic Chip Assembly

+ Resilient Packaging for Autonomous System

+ Low Power / Low Temperature / Ultra Low Noise System Packaging

This conference is a perfect opportunity for you to communicate, interact, exchange technical ideas, and discuss your latest novel research findings in 5G and B5G packaging technologies with experts from industry and academia. In addition to the regular sessions, there is an "Early Career Researchers' (ECR)" poster session for young researchers with less than 2-year experience in their professions and all students including Ph.D. to hold fruitful communications with experts.
