Reading time ( words)

Each year, IPC APEX EXPO features industry’s most dynamic, innovative minds to deliver keynote presentations that are both educational and entertaining. IPC APEX EXPO 2023 will feature Emily Calandrelli, host and co-executive producer of the hit Netflix series “Emily’s Wonder Lab,” host and executive producer of FOX channel’s “Exploration Outer Space” and author of the children’s chapter book series, “The Ada Lace Adventures.” During her keynote on January 24, Calandrelli will present, “The Sustainability, Economics and Advocacy of Space Exploration.”

Space exploration has led to the development of various technologies that feed back into the economy and improve our lives on Earth. Without space programs, we wouldn’t have GPS, accurate weather prediction, solar cells, or the ultraviolet filters in sunglasses and cameras. In her keynote presentation, Calandrelli will address how space exploration is helping life here on Earth and provide an overview of the innovation occurring today, where we’re headed and the economics and advocacy behind it all.

Calandrelli frequently presents on the importance of science literacy, the benefits of space exploration, and the challenges for women in STEM careers. In addition to her morning keynote on January 24, she will also be the featured speaker at the Women in Electronics Reception in the evening, addressing why women are in the minority in STEM professions and what is being done to break barriers into STEM for the next generation.

Calandrelli's educational background is in engineering and policy. At West Virginia University she received a bachelor’s degree in mechanical and aerospace engineering. While at WVU she was awarded the Goldwater scholarship for research and Truman scholarship for policy work. She received her master’s degrees from MIT in aeronautics and astronautics as well as technology and policy.

Calandrelli’s keynotes are free to all IPC APEX EXPO participants with advance registration ($40 online and onsite after January 21, 2023). Meetings and courses will run January 21-26; the technical conference and exhibition will run January 24-26, 2023. For more information on schedule and registration options, visit IPCAPEXEXPO.org.

Electronica 2022: Happy to Be Back in Munich

11/21/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
As we stepped out of the hotel into the drizzling rain, we were relieved that it wasn’t snow. Looking down the escalator into the U2 platform in Munich’s Hauptbahnhof central station early on the morning of Tuesday, Nov. 15 and observing the mass of humanity pushing and shoving to cram into trains to the exhibition centre, it appeared that a significant proportion of the international electronics industry had gathered to attend electronica 2022, co-located with SEMICON Europa and recognised as the world’s leading trade fair and conference for electronics.

Electronica: Picking Up Where We Left Off

11/18/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
The productronica/electronica pairing of trade shows is an experience unlike any other; anyone who has ever attended is likely to back me up on that claim. This year’s iteration of electronica, taking place in Messe Munich, Nov. 15-18, is no exception. I-Connect007 was onsite to gather the news and share our impressions of the show. First, the show’s attendance was rumored to be in the 60,000+ range. This number sure seemed to be reasonable given the crowd sizes we witnessed.
