Special Symposium

As MEMS become key components in pervasive computational systems, microsystem designs are evolving from "stand alone" components to systemically conceptualised application packages. Designers and engineers are beginning to work closely with medics, artists, environmental scientists and other end users to produce holistically designed systems for novel application areas. Recent extraordinary developments include using sense data as a basis for motion capture in new media arts, in-body sensing with radio telemetry and planetary exploration. These add to the impressive array of applications already in common currency, such as environmental sensing, object tracking with RFID and mobile office environments.

This symposium concerns the radical and big thinking required to deliver new capabilities based on microsystem technologies. We are interested in reporting on research and technology which addresses the following challenges:

  • MEMS design and integration
  • MEMS components, such as RF and optical subsystems
  • Sensor and actuator systems -- design and applications
  • Signal processing associated with MEMS devices
  • Smart and intelligent sensors
  • RFID technology and applications
  • MEMS markets and economic drivers
  • Novel application areas for MEMS, such as in-body sensing, pervasive gaming and the creative arts

We look forward to receiving your submission.

Graduate Activities at Nanotech 2006 - Sensor Systems Symposium

9th -10th May 2006

A) Graduate Forum

The Graduate Forum will allow PhD students the opportunity to showcase their work to the Nanotech audience of leading academic and industrial delegates. It will allow them to take advantage of a ìmaster classî, led by prominent experts in their domain and to receive feedback on their work.

Activity format: several 1 hour sessions with four 10min presentations back to back followed by 20 minutes of discussions. The discussions will be led by a panel of two experts and a chair.

Number of students: 12 students will be invited to participate in this activity.

If you would like to be involved, email the symposium chair

Note: abstract submission compulsory through the Symposium website, by the 18th November.

B) Graduate Tutorials

Four tutorials sampling the MEMS sensing domain of research will be offered to graduate students.

The aim of the activity is to allow the students to broaden their horizons by exposing them to neighbouring domains relatively to their PhD work focus.

The tutorials will be of 60-90min long and will be delivered by leading industrial and academic experts.

If you would like to participate, email the symposium chair

Note: no supplementary fee is required for the tutorials, but all attendees must be registered for the Conference. As places are limited, they are going to be offered on a first come first served basis.
