International Counterfeit Electronics & Materials Symposium and Workshop 14th & 15th of March 2023
The Anti-Counterfeiting Forum, CALCE and SMTA are very pleased to announce that they will be jointly hosting the Counterfeit Electronics and Materials Symposium at the Manufacturing Technology Centre in Coventry, UK, on 14th and 15th March 2023. This international event will feature domain expert speakers from Europe and USA and builds on the history of past events held in the USA by SMTA and CALCE and by the Anti-Counterfeiting Forum in the UK.
The event will focus on current trends, threats and new developments in combating counterfeits in the supply chain. As well as current and emerging new threats, delegates will also be able to hear about current and developing best practice for the management of counterfeits in the supply chain, current and developing new methods for the detection of counterfeits and how to access further information.
The organizers are currently seeking abstracts from interested parties and recommend that you look at the event website to view all topics of interest.
If you plan to submit an abstract, please do so online in the next few weeks. A powerful industry wide technical committee will determine the programme in the coming months.
There will be plenty of opportunity for delegates to raise questions, participate in a discussion and interact with speakers during the day. Delegates will also be able to meet potential solution providers during breaks in the co-located tabletop exhibition space. Industry professionals who are new to the threat and want to learn more as well as experienced practitioners in counterfeit mitigation practices are sure to find this seminar valuable. Online booking will soon be available on the event website:
