Minneapolis, MN - SMTA and CALCE are pleased to announce that Andrew Kline, Senior Advisor for Intellectual Property Enforcement, Executive Office of the President, will give a keynote address on Wednesday, December 1, 2010 for the Counterfeit Electronic Parts and Electronic Supply Chain Symposium. The event will take place November 30 to December 2, 2010, at the University of Maryland in College Park, MD.

Mr. Kline's presentation is titled, "Administration Efforts to Combat Counterfeiting that Affects the Health and Safety of American Consumers." Attendees will thoroughly enjoy this special presentation of the latest information direct from the White House.

Andrew Kline serves as Senior Advisor in a new office of Intellectual Property Enforcement in the White House. In that capacity, Andrew is responsible for all IP-related issues that affect health and safety, including counterfeit pharmaceuticals, other dangerous trademark infringements, and links to organized crime, gangs, and terrorism. He previously served as crime policy advisor to Vice President Biden, as a federal prosecutor for fourteen years, and as Counsel to then-Senator Biden on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

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