IMAPS is the largest society dedicated to the advancement and growth of microelectronics and electronics packaging technologies worldwide. The Fellow of the Society Award is the highest distinction IMAPS can bestow on a member.

Prof. Schneider-Ramelow has made significant scientific contributions in the field of microelectronic packaging, particularly with regard to the quality and reliability of wire bonds. Together with Rolf Aschenbrenner he leads the Department System Integration and Interconnection Technologies (SIIT) at Fraunhofer IZM Berlin. He is also a lecturer at the Technical University Berlin, where he currently teaches graduates courses on Basic Materials and Physical-chemical Principles of System Integration. He has authored and co-authored numerous scientific papers and is a member of the program committees, of many international conferences. In 2015, for example, he was the General Chair of the European Microelectronic Packaging Conference in Friedrichshafen.

Over the years Martin Schneider-Ramelow has been involved with IMAPS in many ways. He has been Chair of IMAPS Germany since 2009 and has made increasing the membership base his particular focus over this period... and very successfully so, as Germany has the largest European chapter with approximately 300 members. 

In September 2015 Martin Schneider-Ramelow was also voted Chair of the European Liaison Committee (ELC) of IMAPS Europe, which means that until 2017 at least he will be responsible for IMAPS both at the German and the European level.
