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
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
