SMTA International Conference Program Finalized and Registration Now Open

Jun 13, 2014

The SMTA is pleased to announce that the program for SMTA International is finalized and available on-line at www.smta.org/smtai and registration is open.  The conference will be held at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois on September 28 - October 2, 2014. This year's program allows the attendee to choose from 19 courses, 120 technical papers, three focused symposia, and numerous free offerings throughout the conference and exhibition.

The SMTA International conference includes focused technical tracks covering Manufacturing and Assembly, Advanced Packaging, Substrates, Soldering, and Quality and Reliability.  Technical sessions will be held on Monday through Thursday.  Tutorials are half-day educational courses offered on Sunday, Monday, and Thursday. Thursday’s tutorial on “Reliability 360: How to Verify Design Robustness Early in the Process” is free for SMTA and IPC members who register in advance.

Informative and focused symposia make up part of the technical conference and include the Evolving Technologies Summit, Harsh Environments Symposium, and Lead-Free Soldering Technology Symposium.

IPC will once again co-locate its Fall Standards Development Committee Meetings during SMTA International. This landmark collaborative effort by both associations has proven to benefit the electronics manufacturing industry as a whole.

Over 170 supplier companies will display equipment, materials, and services at the Electronics Exhibition, which will be held Tuesday and Wednesday, September 30 - October 1.  Attendees are invited to join Tech Tours to get an inside look at the latest in placement equipment and inspection/rework technology.  Free lunch will also be provided both days on the show floor.

Many additional events at SMTA International are free to all attendees including spotlight sessions, the Power and High Temperature Electronic Manufacturing Experience, and youth robotics demos right on the show floor:

First time attendees can take an extra 10% off conference registration. The Early Bird registration deadline is August 28, 2014.
