The SMTA's technical program on 13-14 June, entitled "Advanced electronics assembly - a symposium on lead-free interconnect technology", will bring together individuals who have experience with lead-free solders; not only with the materials themselves, but also with manufacturing issues and reliability concerns.

Dr Paul Vianco, Sandia National Labs, will be chairing the event. Each of the four subsequent sessions will also be chaired by industry experts. These include: Pb-free soldering technology chaired by Ken Gilleo, Alpha Metals; Dr Jennie Hwang, H-Technologies Group, Materials; Srinivas Chada, Motorola, will chair Process implementation; and Interconnect performance and reliability will be chaired by Peter Biocca of Multicore Solders.
