Nanotech 2001 Microtechnology Track
The Joint Nanotech, ICCN & MSM Conference will be held at the Hilton Oceanfront Resort, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, U.S.A.
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.
The Joint Nanotech, MSM & ICCN Conference will be held at the Hilton
Oceanfront Resort, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, U.S.A. Located
on the beach in the beautifully manicured 2000 acre community of
Palmetto Dunes, this world class resort offers the tropical atmosphere
you expect when you dream of your ideal Hilton Head Island vacation.
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 March 25, 2000.
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 this tropical
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
