+ Semiconductor Division, Nitto America

Nitto Denko is a 100-year old large Japanese company that produces a broad variety of materials for electronic systems integration (packaging). These include flexible tapes for interconnects, functional tapes such as magnetic sheets for inductors and EMI absorbers, thermal adhesive tapes and others. These are widely utilized for various products in electronics, automobiles, housing, infrastructure, environment, and medicine, all based on Nitto’s core technologies of adhesive and coatings. In this talk, Nitto technology experts will introduce the company and discuss recent product advances and how they can impact the electronic packaging industry of the future.
Brief overview of the Nitto Group will be presented first. The second part focuses on Nitto Semiconductor Back-End Process solutions – particularly die-attach tapes. The third part focuses on high-frequency and high-permeability magnetic materials for various electronic applications such as inductors, wireless power transfer and so on. Nitto will discuss magnetic sheets and their integration with coils for inductor modules as one of the applications. Nitto has such developed high-performance flexible magnetic sheets that may also have applications in wearable and implantable biomedical electronics.

IEEE Miami Section hosts the IEEE Intelligence and Security Informatics Conference November 8-10, 2018 at FIU

We would like to invite you and welcome your participation to the 2018 IEEE Intelligence and Security Informatics (ISI) Conference that will be held at Florida International University Main Campus Graham Center, Miami, FL between Thursday-Saturday November 8-10, 2018.

Intelligence and Security Informatics is an interdisciplinary research field involving academic researchers in information technologies, computer science, public policy, bioinformatics, medical informatics, and social and behavior studies. ISI supports counterterrorism  and homeland security’s missions of anticipation, prevention, preparedness, and response to security events, in physical, cyber, enterprise, and societal spaces.

FIU is proud to sponsor and host IEEE ISI 2018 that is the largest conference of its kind in the field of security informatics, annually brings together the international community of security researchers and practitioners, from academia, industry, and government. Initially begun in 2003 with funding from the National Science Foundation, ISI is now under the auspices of the IEEE and showcases security work and research in computing, engineering, and information science, public policy, law enforcement and intelligence, and the social and behavioral sciences. This year’s conference theme is Cybersecurity and Big Data. ISI will feature cutting edge research papers (44 accepted contributions (38 full papers and 6 short papers)), 2 stellar speakers, and 1 tutorial as well as other participatory events designed to encourage networking and future partnership.

This is a very timely conference held at FIU, who wants to learn more about some recent work in intelligence and security informatics.
