Nanotech 2000 Microtechnology Track

In Conjunction with the Third International Conference on

Modeling and Simulation of Microsystems

March 27-29, 2000
U.S. Grant hotel
San Diego

The largest gathering in the field worldwide, MSM is the premier technical forum for presenting the latest research and development in modeling and simulation methods, tools and applications in the MEMS, microelectronic, semiconductor, sensor, materials and biotechnology fields.

MSM 2000 will be held at the U.S. Grant hotel, located in the heart of downtown San Diego's business and cultural district, across from the Gas Lamp Quarter, and the world famous Horton Plaza, walking distance to Theaters, Restaurants and Harbor, and minutes from the famed San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park and Seaworld.

The conference will start Sunday late afternoon with registration and reception, and adjourn Wednesday afternoon. Technical sessions, and the vendor exhibition run Monday through Wednesday. Conference registration and housing will officially open October 15, 1999.

The conference Technical Proceedings, consisting of articles submitted by authors of both oral and poster presentations will, be distributed to participants at registration.

In addition to the Technical Program, an exciting series of Social Events are being prepared to allow attendees ample opportunity to interact socially and enjoy the sights and sounds of San Diego.


The goal of MSM is to bring together researchers, designers, programmers and vendors involved in microsystem developments (MEMS microelectronic, semiconductor, sensor, materials and biotechnology fields). In an effort to dramatically shorten development time and reduce prototyping costs, simulation activities have experienced phenomenal growth, generating a large number of point solutions, as well as integrated tools. MSM provides a forum for microsystem simulation specialists, allowing them to be exposed to the state of the art modeling techniques currently implemented in academic or industrial research, encouraging a free exchange of ideas and generating synergies between adjacent specialties. Finally, MSM strives to help advanced modeling techniques diffuse into industry and research centers by organizing workshops, demonstrations and shortcourses.
