BACKGROUND

As a result of regular EIA IBIS Open Forum meetings since 1993, IBIS Version
2.1 has been ratified both nationaly (in the United States of America)
as ANSI/EIA-656 and internationally as IEC 62014-1. Most of the IBIS
are conducted on a regular basis via teleconferencing, but the EIA IBIS
Open Forum also conducts two face-to-face meetings every year at the Design
Automation Conference (DAC) and DesignCon locations. While some of the IBIS
Summits focused on resolving standards issues, others have been used for
general IBIS information exchange. Historically, some of the IBIS advances
have come from such exchanges.

Because of wide-spread international usage and acceptance of IBIS, the
EIA IBIS Open Forum will hold a European IBIS Summit at the same time as the
DATE98 Conference and PCB Symposium in Paris, France. We are particularly
interested the international experiences and ideas at this IBIS Summit.
