Researchers from academia, national laboratories, and manufacturing companies interested in commercialization of nanotechnology and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) are invited to participate in

Nanotechnology and MEMS/Micromachines: A Global Perspective on the Technnology, Applications and Commercialization

, an all-day session that is part of

Sensors Expo 2008

.

To be held Monday, June 9, 2008, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL, the session will address, from a global perspective, current and future applications and major issues associated with the commercialization of nanotechnology, MEMS, microsystem technologies (MST), and micromachines.

The session will begin with an overview of market and technology trends and the technology infrastructure. World-renowned researchers from national laboratories and academia review some of their more significant current activities that are expected to form the basis of many products scheduled for commercialization in the first decade of the new millennium. Technical staffers from major manufacturers and exciting new startups will present information on their technologies for current and future applications.

Founded in 1986, Sensors Expo & Conference is said to be North America’s only trade show and conference devoted exclusively to sensors, sensor-based systems, applications, and enabling technologies. The event is expected to draw approximately 200 exhibitors and over 3,000 attendees.

Participants who want to submit papers are invited to send

a 200-300 word abstract to Roger Grace at Roger Grace Associates
