Printing Evolution in a World Dominated by Mobile Devices
Abstract:“Printing is dead now that we have these new devices.” We've all heard that said. “Young people don't want to print anymore!” We've heard that endless times. “Office work is changing so printers will become obsolete.” Yup, old news. “The way people take and share pictures make printing photos unnecessary.” Way too many times! “Communication and people have evolved that paper is just passé” Volumes have been written on this! Oh wait – you thought I was talking about recent news with mobile devices and wearables. I was talking about the last several compute revolutions and the pundits predictions on printing. They were wrong before (sort of) and they are wrong again (sort of).

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
