It would be physically impossible to attend all the conferences and exhibitions organized across the electronics universe, so here is a list of events for 2012 compiled on the basis of only one per month.
I couldn't find anything super-exciting for May so I have left it blank. Future Horizons often organizes its International Electronics Forum in that month, which i have attended in the past. Or maybe I will take a month off!
Readers are welcome to suggest events in May – or any other month – that they think it would be good to attend.
The events in March and October are organized by UBM Electronics, the publisher of EE Times.
