The focus of this seminar was "Networking Electronics Packaging Education". In eight technical sessions were presented more than hundred papers. 107 contributions were published in the proceedings (496 pages). This seminar was supported by a number or sponsors too, including the National Science Foundation, USA, and the IEEE-CPMT Hungary-Romania Joint Chapter.
The major topics of this seminar were:
The professors and young scientists came from 22 universities. Therefore, it was a very creative atmosphere to discuss new methods and subjects of education across the borderlines and new possibilities for an international scientific cooperation. Prof. Illyefalvi-Vitez gave information about the "International Local Network of Electronics Packaging Education" with 10 universities, and other professors discussed about their experiences in this field.
In the "Minutes of the closing meeting of the Steering Committee" of ISSE´98 the intention was expressed to realize a good contact to Academic Conferences at PRC Georgia Tech and to involve a few people into the work of both conferences. Two years later, in 2000, this goal was reached.
