Symposium on Counterfeit Electronic Parts and Electronic Supply Chain
WHEN: June 25-27, 2013
LOCATION: Marriott Inn & Conference Center
University of Maryland, College Park, MD
Changes in electronic supply chain had been fast and deep in the last decades and the impact of those changes on the practices of the supply chain members is still evolving. It is well understood that the scourge of counterfeit electronic parts is related to the changes in supply chain but counterfeit electronics is only one of the many impacts. This symposium will provide a forum to cover all aspects of changes in the electronic parts supply chain on how an organization performs part selection and management through the whole life cycle of the parts. First two days of the event will be Technical Symposium.
Chair Professor and CALCE Director Michael Pecht will share his knowledge and experience on the global electronics industry and how that creates the market for counterfeit electronics with the audience.
Presentations given by: Applied DNA Sciences, China’s CEPREI Laboratory, Creative Electron, EMC, GDCA, InfraTrac, Innovative Technologies Inc., Integra Technologies, Lewis, Nakomis, Nisene, iNemi, Qualmark, Silicon Expert TTI, University of Connecticut, and more.
An experienced panel will discuss the impact of adoption of SAE 6171 test laboratory standard for counterfeit detection. The panel will include laboratory specialists, equipment manufacturers, OEMs and distributors. A session will be devoted to various authentication tools including biological, ceramic, and polymer variety.
This well-attended and well-regarded symposium attracts high level decision makers who are managing changes within their organizations, selecting tools and technologies to stay ahead of the competition, and providing services to other organizations. We are particularly interested in business practice and technological success stories from the industry and innovative ideas from broad spectrum of supply chain members. We will give preference to abstracts that relate to areas beyond traditional electronic components and cover areas such as battery, circuit boards, electromechanical components, displays, complete products.
