The ESD Association is now soliciting presentation abstracts for the fourth annual International Electrostatic Discharge Workshop (IEW). The Workshop will be held May 10-13, 2010, at the Evangelische Akademie in Tutzing, Germany. The spirit of the Tutzing estate and its 18th Century Mansion will encourage thoughtful discussions and intensive interaction.
