Symposium on Counterfeit Parts and Materials: June 26 - 28, 2018

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. 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.

The symposium, organized by CALCE and SMTA, is a valuable resource for quality and reliability managers, supply chain managers, brand protection specialists, inspectors, marketing and procurement policy makers, contracts and legal management, security specialists and government agencies.

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

At this time, we are accepting abstracts for the symposium. Additional information on submissions can be found here.
