Symposium on Counterfeit Electronic Parts West Concludes Successfully

Jul 09, 2010

Minneapolis, MN - SMTA and CALCE @ the University of Maryland are pleased to announce that the Symposium on Counterfeit Electronic Parts West was a resounding success. The event took place June 8-11, 2010, in Deer Valley (Phoenix), AZ.

Presentations covered intellectual property enforcement, prevention and detection strategies, defense strategies, G19 activities, and counterfeit trends. Two keynote presentations were given by Office of the U.S. Trade Representative and the Government Accountability Office. Panel discussions covered supply chain perspectives on counterfeit electronics and U.S. law enforcement strategies. Panelists included representatives from DCIS Columbus, Intellectual Property Rights Unity (FBI), NCIS, Missile Defense Agency, Texas Instruments and more.

"The quality of the presentations and usefulness of the information and discussion exceeded my expectations," commented one symposium participant. "I was especially happy to see such a diverse set of perspectives being brought together, with the entire supply chain being represented, as well as a broad selection of government customer, law enforcement and policy participants."

The event proceedings are available in the SMTA BookStore online.

The symposium was organized by SMTA in conjunction with the Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering (CALCE) at the University of Maryland.

The SMTA membership is an international network of professionals who build skills, share practical experience and develop solutions in electronic assembly technologies, including microsystems, emerging technologies, and related business operations.
