Nanotech 99 Microtechnology Track
In Conjunction with the Second International Conference on
Modeling and Simulation of Microsystems
April 19-21, 1999
San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino
The goal of MSM is to bring together researchers, designers, programmers and vendors involved in microsystem developments (microelectronic, semiconductor, sensor, materials and biotechnology fields) 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 emphasizes a unified viewpoint, addressing issues of mutual interest and encouraging bridges between adjacent specialties.
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, facilitating a free exchange of ideas and generating synergies towards a complete software and system integration solution.
The conference provides an annual location for the demonstration of new software solutions as they relate to the focus topics.
Finally, MSM strives to help the advanced modeling techniques diffuse into industry and research centers by organizing workshops, demonstrations and shortcourses.
