Call for Papers
Be Part of the Solution...
Participate in the industry's best technical conference
On behalf of the SMTA International Technical Committee, I invite you to submit an abstract for the 2016 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Materials must be original, unpublished and non-commercial in nature.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!
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. $500 award for the best student paper.
We look forward to reviewing your abstract!
