-- MIG welcomes technologists to MEMS Technical Congress, emphasizes working groups and breakout sessions on emerging MEMS, tech transfer and integration
PITTSBURGH -- (March 4, 2015) -- MEMS Industry Group (MIG) announced today a technical event with a hands-on focus: MEMS Technical Congress™, May 6-7, 2015 in Boston, Mass.
MEMS Technical Congress opens MIG’s annual technical event -- formerly held for MIG members only -- to non-member companies from the MEMS/sensors supply chain for the first time. Expanded attendance will further enrich the type of technical exchanges among attendees that have resulted in major initiatives in past years that are propelling the MEMS/sensors industry forward. These include IEEE 2700-2014 and the MEMS Foundry Engagement Guide.
MEMS Industry Group Executive Director Karen Lightman explained why the MEMS/sensors industry needs MEMS Technical Congress:
“While there are other technical conferences addressing MEMS and sensors, few if any are addressing near-term commercialization opportunities and challenges beyond the timeframe of the event,” said Ms. Lightman. “MIG has several very active working groups that meet throughout the year. It’s fitting that MIG embark on a technical congress to formally unite all the work that is currently going on under the MIG umbrella with input from potential MIG members and colleagues.”
Hands-on Technical Collaboration
In contrast with other MIG flagship events, such as MEMS Executive Congress US and Europe and MEMS Industry Group Conference Asia, MEMS Technical Congress focuses on critical technical issues of MEMS and sensors adoption, integration, commercialization and standards. Attendees include CTOs, vice presidents of engineering, design engineers, architects, product development engineers, academics and R&D managers.
All MEMS Technical Congress attendees can attend breakout sessions on Emerging MEMS & Sensors, Tech Transfer and Integration Challenges. Breakout sessions give attendees a structured way to take a deep dive into critical technical issues.
MEMS Technical Congress also features an opening keynote by Francis Gouillart, president of The Experience Co-Creation Partnership, several technically focused speakers, a tour of Draper Laboratory, and a dinner event co-hosted with Analog Devices.
