CPMT Overview

CPMT President: Jean Trewhella

The IEEE Components, Packaging and Manufacturing Technology Society is the leading international forum for scientists and engineers engaged in the research, design and development of revolutionary advances in microsystems packaging and manufacturing.

Its objectives are scientific, literary, and educational in character. The Society strives for the advancement of the theory and practice of electrical and electronics engineering and of the allied arts and sciences, and the maintenance of a high professional standing among its members and others and with special attention of such aims within the field of interest of the Society.

The CPMT Society promotes close cooperation and exchange of technical information among its members and others through technical conferences and workshops, peer-reviewed publications, and collaboration with other organizations.

It is one of 38 technical Societies within the IEEE.

Field of Interest

The scientific, engineering, and production aspects of materials, components, modules, hybrids and micro-electronic systems for all electronic applications, which includes technology, selection, modeling/simulation, characterization, assembly, interconnection, packaging, handling, thermal management, reliability, testing/control of the above as applied in design and manufacturing. Examples include optoelectronics and bioelectronic systems packaging, and adaptation for operation in severe/harsh environments. Emphasis is on research, analysis, development, application and manufacturing technology that advance state-of-the-art within this scope.

Global Reach

Through its sponsored and cosponsored conferences and workshops held throughout the world, as well as its peer-reviewed Transactions containing articles from authors worldwide, the CPMT Society provides the best available technical information.

Local Activities

Chapters throughout the US, Europe and Asia/Pacific provide opportunities for groups of local members to meet and participate in activities on a more frequent basis, often focusing on the particular profile of the locale.


The Society is managed by a Board of Governors composed of elected and appointed volunteer members.  A set of operational committees oversee key activities and functions of the Society.
