International Conference on Soldering & Reliability 2015
Symposium on Counterfeit Electronic Parts and Electronic Supply Chain
Technical Symposium: June 24 - 26, 2014 Workshops: June 26, 2014 Expo: June 24-25 University of Maryland, College Park, MD
SMTA and CALCE @ University of Maryland are pleased to announce the east coast venue for the Symposium on Counterfeit Electronic Parts and Electronic Supply Chain. The program will be held June 24-26 at the Marriott Inn & Conference Center next to the University of Maryland. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from and share your insights with government, industry and academia who are addressing the counterfeit problem.
Changes in electronic supply chain had been fast and furious in the last decades and its impact on the practices of companies is still evolving. It is well understood that, the scourge of counterfeit electronic parts is related to the changes in supply chain but it 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 whole life cycle of the parts.
Going beyond anecdotes and examples of counterfeit parts, this symposium focuses on the solutions that are available and are under development by all sectors of the industry.
Topics will include:
Impact of supply chain changes on the component management practices: quality, reliability, manufacturability
Electronic parts distribution: current stage and evolution
Authentication techniques for securing electronic part supply chain
Federal procurement practices and its impact on electronic supply chain
Inspections tools and techniques for detecting counterfeit parts
New areas of counterfeit concerns: materials, energy storage
Industry and international working groups and standards on electronic part supply chain and counterfeit electronic parts
The symposium is organized by SMTA in conjunction with Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering (CALCE) at the University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA. This symposium will be valuable to quality and reliability manager, supply chain managers, brand protection specialists, inspectors, marketing and procurement policy makers, contracts and legal management, security specialists and government agencies. Our focus is to provide relevant information to the professionals that can be used for solving problems today while planning for a different business and technology environment in the future.

"How clean is clean?" is more challenging to answer as conductors and circuit traces become narrower. What is acceptably clean for one industry segment may be unacceptable in others.
Brought to you by IPC and SMTA, the High-Reliability Cleaning and Conformal Coating Conference will cover technological developments in all areas of cleaning and coating applied to electronics assemblies.
The event will include a technical conference, two half-day tutorials, networking activities and tabletop exhibits. Tutorials will provide practical information on materials, equipment and methodologies at the basic-to-intermediate levels. The technical conference will feature advanced-level presentations from subject-matter experts, emphasizing case studies of real-world problems along with solutions.
South East Asia Technical Training Conference on Electronics Assembly Technologies 2015
The South East Asia Technical Conference on Electronics Assembly is a highly technical three-day event that is focused on today's most important and timely issues.
The drive for smaller, more functional consumer electronics along with the need for highly reliable electronics applications have kept the material, process and quality engineers busy planning for the future. These drive the many challenges that our industry faces today. We encourage our colleagues in Malaysia to come together to share their knowledge and their vision for addressing these challenges.
Abstracts (300 words) are due January 4th, 2015. The abstract and presentation must be non-commercial in nature and emphasize the technology and not the company portfolio.
Also Accepting Course Abstracts on SMT and Semiconductor, LED, Photovoltaic, and Nano-Technology and any other topics you wish to submit. When you submit your abstract please indicate if it is a course.
Sessions and topics in our 2015 program will focus on new processes and materials, reliability, cleaning challenges, harsh environment applications, advanced packaging to include package on package, process control and the latest developments in surface finishes.
