2008 Micro & Nanomanufacturing Conferences Come to Boston April 22-23
DEARBORN, MI | Posted on August 17th, 2007
Guided by and with the active involvement of industry and academia, the events address those issues of highest interest to manufacturing professionals. The 2008 conference advisors are Carol Barry, University of Massachusetts at Lowell; Donna Bibber, Micro Engineering Solutions, LLC; Wally Cruz, Wallyco; Kornel Ehmann, Northwestern University; Placid M. Ferreira, University of Illinois-Urbana; Peter Gao, Applied Materials; Nils Hoivi, IBM T.J. Watson Research Center; Thomas Kurfess, Clemson University; Rhett Mayor, Georgia Institute of Technology; Jerry Mraz, SmalTec International; Ananda V. Mysore, Seagate Technology; Mike Nelson, NanoInk, Inc.; Jun Ni, University of Michigan; Susan Sackman, Medtronic Spinal and Biologics; Tony Sexton, Teleflex Medical; Richard H. Smith, Flexible Medical Systems, LLC; William Spanks, Florida Turbine Technologies; Tihamer Toth-Fejel, General Dynamics; and Jim Von Ehr, Zyvex Corporation.
According to Tihamer Toth-Fejel of General Dynamics, "This conference concentrates on nanotech that matters; from nanoparticles and metrology to nanomachines and nanoCAD software - everything to prepare you for the coming nanomanufacturing revolution."
Susan Sackman of Medtronics adds, "Companies on the cutting edge of technology that manufacture innovative products need to continually drive new solutions. The challenge is to determine how that can be done. The real value of this event is getting to see what others are doing not only at universities, but in every industry from medical to aerospace to telecommunications. It's a chance to collaborate with experts from around the world and develop synergy with others that are focused on micromanufacturing."
