I'm at the Society of Plastics Engineers' Antec 2011 conference today in Boston. My head is just spinning a bit after sitting in on forums with names like "High temperature polyimide film for roll-to-roll copper-indium-gallium-selenide (CIGS) deposition." All good stuff, and thoroughly researched. I love how the Q&A after a technical presentation can be so specific -- or how sometimes an entire roomful of experts has no questions at all! SPE provided some facts and figures today about the conference:
- Experts will make more than 700 presentations at 108 topical sessions this year.
- Paper and presentation submissions were up 25 percent from 2010 levels.
- Student presentations have hit a 10+ year high.
