Symposium on Counterfeit Electronic Parts and Electronic Supply Chain

June 23-25, 2015
College Park Marriott Hotel and Conference Center
College Park, MD

SMTA and CALCE University of Maryland are pleased to announce the 2015 Symposium on Counterfeit Electronic Parts and Electronic Supply Chain. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from and share your insights with experts from government, industry and academia who are addressing the counterfeit problem. This symposium is the best forum in the country for presenting and learning about the latest technology and policy developments in the area of electronics supply chain and counterfeit electronics prevention.

The rapid and drastic changes in supply chain in recent years has contributed directly to the scourge of counterfeit electronic parts. Less well known, however, is how counterfeiting and piracy are also impacting other related sectors, including energy storage and generation eqipment, electromechanical parts, wirings, switchgears, connectors, fasteners and bearings. To address these problems, innovative scientists and entrepreneurs are developing robust products and processes, new standards are being created, and government and international bodies are developing new policies and legal structures.

Topics covered in this symposium will include the following:

  • Impact of supply chain changes on component management practices: quality, reliability and manufacturability
  • New areas of counterfeit concerns: materials, energy storage
  • Industry and international working groups and standards on electronic part supply chain and counterfeit electronic parts
  • Solutions from Original Equipment Manufactures (OEMs)
  • Solutions from Original Component Manufactures (OCMs)
  • Authentication techniques for securing the electronic part supply chain
  • Inspection tools and techniques for detecting counterfeit parts
  • How distributors can prepare themselves to be part of the solution
  • Please provide an abstract (within 300 words) on any relevant topics using the online form by March 6th. Presentations will be due in May. View more information on the call for abstracts page.
