Minneapolis, MN=ADThe Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA) and IPC announced the High Performance Electronics Assembly Cleaning Symposium will take place on October 28-29, 2008 in Rosemont, IL. This will be the industry premier conference on cleaning for electronics assembly.

The symposium will focus on all classes of high reliability and high performance electronics assembly and will include case studies from manufacturing experts in the aerospace and defense, automotive, consumer telecommunications, and medical products industries.

IPC and SMTA are currently requesting abstracts of approximately 300 words that summarize technical and previously unpublished, non-commercial work covering case histories, research and discoveries. Abstracts must be received by May 5, 2008. Preference will be given to submissions for papers in high reliability (including medical, military, automotive, aerospace, and telecommunications) and high volume production segments such as information technology. Submissions are sought on cleaning in the following areas or other related areas:

  • Future Cleaning Challenges

  • Cleanliness Assessment

  • Cleaning Requirements

  • Class 3 Cleaning Process

  • No-Clean Process

  • Spot Cleaning

  • Cleaning for Conformal Coating

  • Cleaning Agent Compatibility

  • Constraints (for alloys, labels, components and board materials)
