    In one of his papers published in 1965, Moore stated that: "The complexity for minimum component costs has increased at a rate of roughly a factor of two per year", which is also called Moore's law and has been the most powerful driver for the development of the microelectronic industry. This law emphasizes lithography scaling and integration (in 2D) of all functions on a single chip, perhaps through system-on-chip (SOC). On the other hand, the integration of all these functions can be achieved through system-in-package (SIP) or, ultimately, 3D integration, which is called More Than Moore. In this talk, the following topics will be covered.
    - Introduction
    - Quantitative Analysis and Infrastructure of TSV (Through Silicon Via)
    - TSV as Interposers
    - 3D IC Integration with TSV
    - Thermal Management of 3D Packaging
    - Low Temperature Bonding (LTB) of 3D Packages
    - Embedded Wafer Level Packages (EWLP) and PCBs
    - MEMS Packaging
    - Photonic Packaging
    - Summary
