SMTA Announces New West Coast Location for Counterfeit Electronic Parts Symposium

Feb 12, 2010

Minneapolis, MN - SMTA and CALCE @ University of Maryland are pleased to announce a west coast venue for the Symposium on Avoiding, Detecting, and Preventing Counterfeit Electronic Parts. The first three symposia (held in College Park, MD) were overwhelming successes with participation of part manufacturers, distributors, users, government and law enforcement agencies, legal professionals, authentication technology manufacturers, academic institutions, supply chain and brand protection professionals. Abstracts for presentations are now being accepted through April 9, 2010.

Going beyond anecdotes and examples of counterfeit parts, this symposium focuses on the solutions that are available and are under development by all sectors of the industry.

Topics will include:

  • Electronic parts supply chain

  • Sources of counterfeit parts

  • Proven methodologies for reducing chances of being victims of counterfeit parts

  • Supply chain management tools to mitigate counterfeit part risks

  • Inspections tools and techniques for detecting counterfeit parts

  • Authentication techniques for securing electronic part supply chain

  • Trade and business issues adopted by industry

  • Law enforcement and international cooperation

The conference is organized by SMTA in conjunction with Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering (CALCE) at the University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA. This symposium will be valuable to supply chain managers, component engineers, brand protection specialists, marketing and procurement policy makers, contracts management, security specialists and other interested engineers. Our focus is to provide relevant information to the professionals that can be used for solving problems today while planning for a different business and technology environment in the future.

Please provide an abstract (within 300 words) on any relevant topics to Dr. Diganta Das via email to diganta@umd.edu no later than April 9th. The final presentations are due May 14th. For more information, please visit: http://www.smta.org/education/education.cfm#counterfeit_west
