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 2013 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Materials must be original, unpublished and non-commercial in nature.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.
We will be accepting late submissions until March 29th
Acceptance: April 29, 2013 | Final Papers Due: July 31, 2013.
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.
