GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. -- Advancements in Thermal Management 2010 is a technical symposium for design engineers and product developers looking to push the capabilities of their electronics designs. Being held on Oct. 19th, 2010 at the Gaylord Texan in Dallas, Texas, this event will feature presentations on the latest advancements in thermal management and thermal technology for electronics packaging and cooling, temperature sensing and control, thermal materials, systems design and management for optimizing thermal properties.
“Designing electronics with high power needs and processing power is taxing the limits of thermal management and protection technology,” said Nick Depperschmidt, program chairman. “Because of this, engineers must stay up-to-date on the latest advancements in this rapidly changing field. Attendance at Advancements in Thermal Management 2010 will provide that kind of educational experience.”
According to a study from BCC Research, the value of the global market for thermal management technologies is an estimated $7.5 billion in 2010, but is expected to increase to $10.2 billion in 2015, for a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.4 percent. In recent years, there has been tremendous progress, technologically and in terms of demand, in electronic devices and systems. According to BCC, the technological progress has come on two main fronts, increased functionality on a single device unit and miniaturization of each unit. Both of these developments have increased the need for thermal management technology.
The event will be organized to provide numerous opportunities for constructive and creative networking including refreshment and networking breaks, peer discussion sessions, question & answer sessions with leading government, market and technology experts, luncheon, reception and tabletop or portable exhibits. Use this time to network with peers, professionals and potential business partners involved in technology solutions serving a variety of applications. Learn about the latest products, services and technologies available and discover what is on the horizon.

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
