The program for the MEMS Technology Summit to take place at the Stanford University Campus on Oct. 19-20, 2010 has been announced by the conference organizers. The general theme of the conference, ”Lessons learned in MEMS research and commercialization with a vision of future development directions” will be addressed.
In addition to the 24 technical presentations, of which eight will be keynote, a special multi-participant session and a panel discussion titled “Monetizing MEMS” will complete the technical program. The October 19 dinner keynote, “Going to the Grave a Happy Man—A Dinnertime Conversation” will be given by Don Eichler, a Fellow at IBM’s Almaden Research Center in San Jose, CA. Dr. Eichler is the 2010 recipient of the Kavli Prize in the field of nanoscience. He shared the $1 million award with colleague Nadrian Seeman for “development of unprecedented methods to control matter on the nanoscale.”
Tours of Stanford Laboratories and networking evenings, and a co-sponsored social event on October 20 with the Bay Area MEMS Meet Up Group complement the expansive, exciting and program. The program was created in conjunction with and to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the founding of NovaSensor.
The cost of the event is $695. For more information on schedule details, final agenda, speakers’ bios and abstracts, housing and other incidentals, please visit the conference website.
