SMTA and CALCE Seeking Abstracts for 3rd Annual LED Assembly, Reliability, and Test Symposium

The SMTA and CALCE are pleased to announce the LED Assembly, Reliability, and Test (A.R.T.) Symposium will take place November 28 – November 30, 2017 at the Archie K. Davis Conference Center in Research Triangle Park, NC.

The LED Assembly, Reliability & Testing (A.R.T.) Symposium will provide attendees with information to bridge the gap between the semiconductor physics and the architectural design level issues in LED supply chain. The design, manufacturing, reliability assessment, testing and inspection of LEDs and LED lighting products are not at the same level of development and interest. The LED A.R.T. Symposium is the forum for the industry to explore the problems faced and offer solutions.

The topics of interest include but not limited to:
•LED Assembly
•LED Failure Mechanisms
•LED Packaging
•Applications
•Reliability and Testing
•Package and Board Cleaning
•Architectural/Smart Lighting
•UV and IR LEDs
•Wearable Sensors-LEDS
•LED Driver System

If you would like to present at this conference, please submit a 200-300 word abstract to http://www.smta.org/LED/call_for_abstracts.cfm by July 1, 2017. Please include a title, author name, and contact information with your abstract. You can also submit proposals for half or full day workshops.
