Call for Participation

Share the Knowledge - Your Research Matters

Achieve professional success by contributing to SMTA's unparalleled educational programs. Share your latest research on lead-free soldering and reliability, advanced packaging and components, wafer-level packaging, cleaning, counterfeit components, supply chain and process control.

Because of the dedication of engineers just like you, the electronics assembly and advanced packaging industries have seen tremendous growth over the years. Remember, every little bit helps and your research is beneficial to engineers all over the world. By presenting a technical paper at a conference you can contribute to the general advancement of the electronics industry as well as establish yourself and your company as an innovator and a thought leader. Get started by submitting an abstract for one of our upcoming conferences.


Submission of an abstract for an SMTA program is with the understanding that, if accepted, the author will provide a conference presentation and/or a technical paper for the proceedings. All submissions must be non-commercial in nature and focus on technology research rather than a company product.
