SMTA and CALCE University of Maryland are pleased to announce the 2014 Symposium on Counterfeit Electronic Parts and Electronic Supply Chain. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from and share your insights with experts from government, industry and academia who are addressing the counterfeit problem. This symposium is the best forum in the country for presenting and learning about the latest technology and policy developments in the area of electronics supply chain and counterfeit electronics prevention.
