SMTA International Conference Program Finalized and Registration Now Open

Jun 08, 2017

The SMTA is pleased to announce that the program for the SMTA International Conference and Exhibition is finalized and available on-line at www.smta.org/smtai and registration is open. Taking place September 17-21, 2017 at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois, the conference features 20 workshops, 130 technical papers, and numerous complimentary offerings for engineers and professionals in the electronics manufacturing industry.

Technical tracks will cover Advanced Packaging Technology; Manufacturing Excellence - process and assembly; Substrates/PCB Technology; Flux, Solder and Adhesives; and Inspection Technologies. Engineers from major manufacturing companies like Celestica, Flex, IBM, Intel, Lockheed Martin, Sanmina Corporation, and several universities will present their latest research on critical process improvements, new materials and technologies. One session on Monday afternoon comprised of all women presenters will be followed by a panel discussion on the technical achievements of women, mentoring, and STEM initiatives. Three focused symposia rounding out the technical conference are the Technical Innovations Symposium, Harsh Environments Symposium, and Lead-Free Soldering Technology Symposium.

Twenty half-day educational workshops are offered Sunday and Monday from expert instructors on topics including Fan-Out Wafer-Level Packaging and 3D Packaging, DfX, Cleaning, Ball Grid Array (BGA) issues, Flex Circuits, Reliability, Inspection, Temperature Profiling, Reflow Soldering, Stencil Printing, Surface Finishes, Process Troubleshooting and more.

Microsoft’s General Manager of their HoloLens Hardware Design Team, Rune Jensen, will keynote the conference with a presentation Tuesday morning titled “Experiencing Mixed Reality - using the Microsoft HoloLens.” The ability to project 3D images into a user’s field of view has many exciting applications in the industrial space with the ability to provide real-time information or images fixed in-space to a real-world object. Microsoft calls this “mixed reality.” Rune will share technical challenges and triumphs as well as illustrate several practical applications of this innovative technology.

Over 170 exhibiting companies will display equipment, materials, and services at the Electronics Manufacturing Exhibition, which will be held Tuesday and Wednesday, September 19 - 20. Attendees are invited to join Tech Tours to get an inside look at the latest in equipment and technology available. Lunch coupons will be provided both days on the show floor.

IPC Fall Standards Development Committee Meetings are co-located with the conference. The full schedule for IPC committee meetings are on the IPC website. Registration is required.

Several events at SMTA International are free to all attendees including Spotlight Sessions with presentations on Component Challenges, Reliability, Solder Alloys, Soldering, Process Control, RoHS and Traceability. Other complimentary events available to all attendees are the Women’s Leadership Program, New Product Showcase, Fun Run, Appreciation Reception, Tech Tours, and the Students and Young Professionals Night Out.

The 10th Annual SMTA International Golf Tournament will kick-off with a shotgun start at 8:30am on Thursday, September 21. Over 60 golfers are expected to participate in the tournament at the Maple Meadows Golf Club.
