MSM 2003, Announcement and Call for Papers
ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS
Sixth International Conference on
Modeling and Simulation of Microsystems
February 23-27, 2003
Grand Hyatt San Francisco
San Francisco, California, 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 NanoTech 2003 Meeting, MSM & ICCN Conference will be held at the Grand Hyatt
San Francisco hotel in San Francisco, California, U.S.A. This luxury property
is located in the very heart of downtown San Francisco Bay, and is part of the
dynamic 8-block Embarcadero Center with convenient access to Fisherman's Wharf,
Chinatown, Moscone Convention Center, Ghirardelli Square, North Beach and Union
Square and Financial District.
The conference will start Sunday late afternoon with registration
and reception, and adjourn Thursday afternoon. Technical sessions,
and the vendor exhibition run Monday through Thursday. Conference
registration and housing will officially open Semptember 2002.
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 Francisco.
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 short courses.
