Spring 2014 Symposium: From Lab to Life: Field Based Applications of MEMS & NEMS
Date: Monday March 10, 2014
Location: University of Maryland BioPark, Baltimore, MD
Technical Cosponsor: Northern Virginia/Washington Chapter of IEEE Nanotechnology Council
The annual Spring MAMNA Symposium is an IEEE-archived, broad-based technical conference in the area of micro & nanotechnology. The Symposium is the premier opportunity for researchers and developers in the Mid-Atlantic region to present their latest results, to network, to cross disciplinary boundaries, and to learn new skills. This year the FDA is providing support to allow an emphasis on education and exchange on the regulatory pathway for micro and nano devices seeking FDA approval for use in a medical device.

We are calling for papers on all aspects of MEMS and NEMS- fundamental and modeling papers, novel devices, and applications. Individuals wishing to present either a poster or a podium talk must submit a 1-2 page (including figures) extended abstract. Authors of selected abstracts will also be invited to submit 2-4 page full papers for the proceedings. (Authors who would only like to present the poster and not be considered for the proceedings may also indicate this preference with abstract submission). There will also be four student poster prizes of $50 each awarded at the conference (2 for undergraduate and 2 for graduate posters). Non-students are also encouraged to submit contributions, although they are not be eligible for the poster prizes.
