TRANSDUCERS conference is the largest multidisciplinary conference on Microsensors, Microactuators and Microsystems, with about more than 1000 attendees from university, research institute, government and industry who gather every two years to exchange the latest advances in the field. The coming Transducers'13 conference is the 17th international conference on solid-state sensors, actuators and Microsystems of the TRANSDUCERS conference series started at 1981 in Boston (USA), and it is the first time for this conference to be held in Spain. The conference will feature four days of presentations and posters highlighting the latest and most technically advanced work in mechanical, optical, chemical, and biological devices and systems using micro- and nano-technology. Work of both a fundamental and applied nature will be featured.
Transducers'13 conference invites contributions describing the latest scientific and technological research results. The major areas of activity in the development of Transducers solicited and expected at this conference include but are not limited to:
1. Mechanical/Physical Sensors and Microsystems
2. Materials, Fabrication and Packaging Technologies
3. Nanoscale Materials, Devices and Fabrication
4. Chemical Sensors and Microsystems
5. Bio-Sensors and Bio-Microsystems
6. Medical Microsystems
8. Polymers / Composite Materials, Devices and Fabrication
9. Energy and Power MEMS, Magnetic Sensors
10. RF MEMS, Resonators, and Oscillators
11. Optical MEMS
13. Theory, Design and Test Methodology
The conference will begin on Sunday, June 16 with short courses that will be propo- sed shortly, conference registration and a Welcome Reception. The conference will begin Monday morning with plenary sessions and then breakout into parallel sessions throughout the duration of the conference. The Exhibition portion will take place Monday through Wednesday, giving opportunities for companies and other scientific associations to demonstrate their latest products and services. Social events are being designed in Barcelona and surrounding areas. Please visit this website for continued updates.
We are looking forward to see you in Barcelona, Catalunya (Spain)for enjoying all together science and technology in the field of solid state sensors, actuators and microsystems as well as the charming atmosphere and warm ambient of a Mediterranean lovely place. Recent progress in physical, chemical and biological sensors including the most advanced technologies in micro/nano fabrication, packaging, design, power MEMS and innovative applications as integrated systems will be presented during the conference.
