Nanotech 98 Microtechnology Track

In Conjunction with the Second International Conference on

Modeling and Simulation of Microsystems

April 6-8, 1998
Santa Clara Marriott


The primary goal of this conference is to bring together researchers, designers, programmers and vendors involved in microsystem developments (microelectronic, semiconductor, sensor and actuators) to facilitate cross fertilization of ideas and exchange of information. In an effort to dramatically shorten the development time and to considerably reduce prototyping costs, the simulation activities have lately experienced a phenomenal growth, generating a large number of point solutions and tools. MSM intends to emphasize a unified viewpoint, addressing issues of mutual interest and encouraging bridges between adjacent specialities. MSM will provide 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, facilitating a free exchange of ideas and generating synergies towards a complete software and system integration solution.

The conference will also provide an annual location for the demonstration of new software solutions as they relate to the focus topics. Finally, MSM will strive to help the advanced modeling techniques diffuse into industry and research centers by organizing workshops, demonstrations and shortcourses.

MSM Topics and Application Areas

The conference intends to provide an arena for analyses, discussions and decisions about how to develop interdependent software packages, how to establish interfaces and cooperation strategies and how to deploy simulation methods progressing towards efficient modeling of complete microsystems.
