    Please provide an abstract (within 300 words) on any relevant topics using the online form by the deadline indicated above. Presentations will be due in May.


    We are also seeking proposals for half and full day courses to be presented on June 27. Please submit proposal for courses with the following:

  • Course outline
  • Who the course is for
  • List of prior offerings of the course

    While the courses on all topics are of interest, we are particularly looking at classes aimed at electronic part distributors and laboratories that perform inspection to help them improve their technical skills and business practices.
