The World's Microengineering Workshop
The 17th workshop on micromachining, micro mechanics and micro systems will take place in Southampton, England on September 3rd to 5th 2006. The workshop is a well established event in the field and provides a lively forum for discussion and debate on the latest developments in the field. The aim is to promote research in, and the application of micro mechanics in Europe.
Scope and Content
The workshop covers the areas of materials, processing technology and devices. The organising committee invites papers in any subject related to Micromachining, Micromechanics and Microsystems, including, but not restricted to:
- Fabrication technologies and processes
- Design and simulation tools
- Microcomponent packaging and solutions
- Device and process characterization
- Sensing and actuation applications
- Microfluidic components and systems
- System integration of MEMS, NEMS, RF MEMS and MOEMS
- Bio MEMS
Three poster sessions are planned and authors will be given the opportunity to highlight the essence of their work in a 3-minute oral presentation prior to the poster session. Ample time will be available during the poster sessions for discussions of new ideas and results. Young scientists are encouraged to present their on-going work. The workshop offers an attractive meeting place where new and important achievements can be discussed.
If micromechanics is your business, Southampton is the place to be in 2006.
