Call for Papers

Be Part of the Solution...
Participate in the industry's best technical conference

The SMTA International Technical Committee invites you to submit an abstract for the 2014 conference. Short course (1/2 day - 3.5 hours) proposals are also being solicited.

Materials must be original, unpublished and non-commercial in nature. Papers should describe significant results from experiments, emphasize new techniques, and contain technical, economic or appropriate test data.

There are many benefits to participating!

You will:
1. Make a contribution to our industry by sharing your work.
2. Network with industry colleagues and showcase your company's position in the industry as an author and speaker,
3. Receive a discount on your conference registration.
4. Be eligible for $1,000 cash awards for the 'Best of Conference', 'Best of Proceedings', and 'Best International' papers.
5. NEW in 2014: $500 award for the best student paper.

Late abstract submissions will be accepted until March 28th
Acceptance: April 29, 2014 | Final Papers Due: July 14, 2014

Choose the Submit Abstract button below and fill out all information on the following form.
Emailed abstracts will not be accepted, they must be submitted online.

IMPORTANT: Please be sure to obtain approval to both write and present your paper prior to submitting an abstract. When a paper is accepted by the Technical Committee, it is our expectation that you have budget approval for travel costs and conference registration which is required for speakers.
