ISIM 2011 - International Symposium on Integrated Microsystems

Date & Time: February 10th (Thu.), 2011, 9:30-19:30
Venue: Tsukuba International Congress Center - Epochal Tsukuba (access information)

The first International Symposium on Integrated Microsystems (ISIM2011) will be held on 10th Feb. 2011 at Tsukuba, Japan.
One of the main topics of this symposium is to share and discuss the most recent achievements of the project "Heterogeneous Integrated Microsystems", conducted under the direction by Professor Esashi at Tohoku University, main researcher of one of the Japanese Funding Programs for World-Leading Innovative R&D on Science and Technology (FIRST).
The other object of the symposium is to discuss about the international collaboration on MEMS industry promotion among the attendees from different backgrounds and nationalities. We would like to share and discuss about the ideal platform for MEMS industrialization to fill the commercialization gap from R&D, prototype to large scale production. 

Prof. Thomas GESSNER (Fraunhofer Institute for Electronic Nano Systems ENAS) will hold a presentation about “Smart Systems Integration by using advanced MEMS technologies”.
