The 4th International Conference on Lead-Free Electronics and Implementation of the RoHS Directive will be held in Copenhagen-Malmo between 25th and 27th April 2006, and like previous conferences, will bring together top class experts to provide a truly international forum. A novel feature will be the availability of exhibition cabinets to allow environmentally conscious manufacturers to promote a selection of their RoHS compliant products to visitors. To be held only a matter of weeks before the RoHS deadline of July 2006, this event offers one of the last opportunities for global industry discussion, technical collaboration, and information sharing.
Several major Japanese manufacturers have already confirmed a strong interest in exhibiting their RoHS compliant products.
There are also opportunities for event sponsorship in a variety of forms, and exhibition space for tabletop displays.
To submit a presentation or training course topic for this conference, speakers should send an abstract (200 to 300 words) along with a brief biography and a completed submission form to Soldertec Global.
More detailed information on this and the exhibiting opportunities is available from the Soldertec Global website.
The deadline for abstract submission is 9th January 2006.
'This conference-exhibition is being held at a critical time for the electronics industry - just weeks before all affected electrical equipment put on the market in Europe will need to comply with the RoHS Directive on all six banned hazardous substances', comments Kay Nimmo, Research Director at Soldertec Global.
'The change to lead-free is affecting the global marketplace, motivating all suppliers and manufacturers to eliminate lead and the other banned substances according to agreed transition plans'.
'Producers of equipment not directly affected by the legislation are also assessing the effects of changes in the supply chain and customer demand'.
'With delegates and speakers from around the world, this event will provide great opportunities to network with industry experts during three days at a top class venue'.
The conference will be held close to Copenhagen at the Hilton Malmo City right in the heart of twin city Malmo, enjoying a breathtaking view over the city and the surrounding Oresund region.
Papers from environmental managers and technical experts are sought on any relevant subjects, including: policy development around the world; supply chain issues; production issues (such as case studies of implementation of lead-free production); long term reliability issues; new developments; hazardous materials other than lead; and environmental considerations.
