Program:

    3:00   Registration, Networking, and Group Introductions

    3:30   Patricia Campbell, Professor at the University of Maryland’s School of Law 
               “Intellectual Property Law: An Overview.”  

Abstract:  This presentation will provide an overview of the four basic areas of intellectual property law, including patents, trade secrets, copyrights and trademarks.   The discussion will focus on the types of property rights that are protected by each area of the law and how they are perfected by the intellectual property rights owner.  The presentation will conclude with a brief discussion of a few of the "hot" issues in intellectual property law today.

Biography:  Patricia Campbell is an Associate Professor at the University of Maryland’s School of Law and she is the Director of the Maryland Intellectual Property Legal Resource Center.  Prior to joining the law school in 2007, Professor Campbell was a litigator and transactional attorney in the Fish & Neave IP Group at Ropes & Gray in Palo Alto, California, and Washington, DC.  Professor Campbell has also worked at law firms in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia and at a high tech company in Silicon Valley.

    3:45  Brief Break
         
    4:00    Sarah Reynolds, Senior Consultant at American River International
                 “Understanding Deemed Exports.”

Abstract:  This presentation will review the particulars of an export transaction such as; what is the definition of an export, how to determine if your export transaction is controlled and if so, by which government agency.  The session will also bring awareness to deemed exports and discuss the controls that should be put in place in order to manage your exports and deemed exports compliantly, including how to obtain a deemed export license and who is defined as a foreign national and its importance.

Biography:  Sarah Reynolds has over 25 years experience in the international logistic industry specializing in supply chain management to difficult and problematic countries.  Sarah’s experience includes employment by notable international freight forwarders such as Kuehne & Nagel, SDV and UTI and exposure to various aspects of the industry such as; sales and customer service, worldwide bid negotiation, network development and compliance management.  Sarah is currently a Senior Consultant at American River International where she provides consulting services and training to companies involved in the international supply chain industry.

           
   4:45  Brief Break
 
   5:00  Vidyu Challa, PhD Candidate at the Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering (CALCE) University of Maryland
              “Effect of Joule Heating on Reliability of High Pin Count Land Grid Array Sockets." 

Abstract:  Performance requirements in high-end microprocessors have led to higher I/O counts and interconnect densities.  As greater currents pass through the microprocessor interconnect, higher temperatures driven by Joule heating are expected to pose a reliability risk to high-pin microprocessor sockets. In this study, the properties of the polymer housing were found to be sensitive to temperature effects owing to its visco-elastic nature, and to significantly influence the stress relaxation behavior of the socket, potentially leading to earlier failure. The factors that influence Joule heating and therefore contribute to earlier failure by stress relaxation were examined using a combination of experimental and numerical methods. Polymer visco-elasticity was characterized and the properties were subsequently used to demonstrate earlier failure by stress relaxation for land-grid array sockets at higher temperatures driven by Joule heating.

Biography:  Vidyu Challa is a PhD candidate in Mechanical Engineering at CALCE. Prior to joining CALCE, Vidyu spent 4 years in the microelectronics industry in the areas of material characterization and failure analysis as an Applications Engineer at Sonix, Inc.  Vidyu received the Phi Delta Gamma award for interdisciplinary scholarship achievement and the Ann Wylie Dissertation Fellowship. Her research interests include socket and connector reliability, qualification of electronic components/systems, material characterization, and finite-element modeling for electronics.  Vidyu has 10 publications from her work at CALCE and her previous position.  She received the M.S degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Akron.
