The goal of this symposium is bringing together educators and researchers involved in micro/nanotechnology management around the world and to provide a forum for exchanging information and presenting new lab operations and educational concepts. Representatives of micro/nano fabrication facilities, ranging from new labs to nationally and internationally recognized facilities, have found this symposium an excellent forum for exchanging information and networking. Industry/university interactions, including new equipment trends, collaborative research, and training efforts are included.
We appreciate vendors and exhibitors who not only provide valuable educational and training resources for keeping us on top of developments in the field, but also for their generous sponsorship of our conference that makes it affordable for colleagues to attend from all over the world. As a result of sponsorships, we will enjoy multiple social networking opportunities to share best practices with our peers and professional development opportunities to learn . Thank you for supporting us in our experiment to provide 50-min detailed, non-commercial, educational workshops by topical experts and vendors.
We’re looking forward to meeting all of you in Philadelphia!
