SMTA and CALCE @ University of Maryland are pleased to announce the east coast venue for the Symposium on Counterfeit Electronic Parts and Electronic Supply Chain. The program will be held November 30 – December 2 at the University of Maryland in College Park, MD. Don’t miss this opportunity to network with government agencies and peers who are addressing the counterfeit problem.

Changes in electronic supply chain had been fast and furious in the last decades and its impact on the practices of companies is still evolving. It is well understood that, the scourge of counterfeit electronic parts is related to the changes in supply chain but it is only one of the many impacts. This symposium will provide a forum to cover all aspects of changes in the electronic parts supply chain on how an organization performs part selection and management through whole life cycle of the parts.

We seek abstracts on all relevant areas on electronic parts supply chain including the following areas:

  • Impact of supply chain changes on the component management practices: quality, reliability, manufacturability

  • Electronic parts distribution: current stage and evolution

  • Authentication techniques for securing electronic part supply chain

  • Federal procurement practices and its impact on electronic supply chain

  • Inspections tools and techniques for detecting counterfeit parts

  • New areas of counterfeit concerns: materials, energy storage

  • Industry and international working groups and standards on electronic part supply chain and counterfeit electronic parts

This symposium will be valuable to senior management, supply chain managers, component engineers, brand protection specialists, inspectors, marketing and procurement policy makers, contracts and legal management, security specialists and government agencies addressing the issue. 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 August 20th. Presentations are due November 1st. Watch for additional symposium information at http://www.smta.org/counterfeit.
