As electronic products become faster and incorporate greater functionality, they are also shrinking in size and weight, with continuing pressures for cost reduction. Thermal issues are key in electronic product development at all levels of the electronic product hierarchy, from the chip to the ultimate system. Shrinking system sizes are resulting in increasing volumetric heat generation rates and surface heat fluxes in many products. This has resulted in a significant interest in ultra-compact high heat removal thermal management devices. Additional thermal management challenges arise as more and more electronic systems are employed in harsh environments, subject to large variations in ambient temperatures and external thermal loads. A synergistic activity is thermal characterization through computations. High-fidelity modeling schemes are being sought, as product development cycles shrink to a period of months in many portable products.

This conference will focus on the recent advances in thermal management and characterization schemes, as well as forecasts and analyses of future trends. Invited talks in selected emerging areas from leading experts in industry and academia are complemented with contributed papers. Panel discussions focusing on technology and market trends and identification of research challenges are also featured.
