Call for
The scope of the conference ranges from showcasing particular topics in basic research in Micro- and Nanotechnologies (MNT), to component, subsystem and system level development for defense, security, energy, biomedical, space and commercial applications. This conference intends to bring together scientists and engineers involved in the development and transition of novel MEMS/NEMS and Nanotechnology concepts for various system-level applications. Given the enormous diversity of MNT, we have selected several cutting-edge, application-driven topics relevant to the technology development and system-level transition process. It is anticipated that this conference will foster cross-fertilization across many disciplines with participants being exposed not only to a broad range of scientific and engineering problems associated with the concepts-to-systems technology development pipeline, but also the accompanying programmatic considerations such as development roadmaps at commercial companies and government agencies. Ultimately, at the system-level, we hope to bring attention to the problem of reliability and robust performance of MNT systems.

This conference has successfully pioneered a unique, "follow the investments" approach of having sessions that are based on MNT research and development programs currently being pursued by various DoD agencies, DOE, NSF, NIH, NASA and commercial companies.

A tentative list of conference session topics is as follows:
  • Advanced imaging, simulation and visualization methods in optical sensing
  • Chemical sensors for wearable/body-worn applications
  • Twistronics in flatland heterostructures: emerging phenomena and applications
  • Control of assembly and transport of nanomaterials for functional device fabrication
  • Advanced technologies in intelligent laser systems
  • Hybrid classical-quantum computing
  • Phase change materials-based optical and neuromorphic applications
  • Harsh environment sensors for energy applications
  • 3D printing for functional and biological applications
  • All‐optical nanoscale thermometry
  • Frontiers, challenges, and prospects in plasmonic and metamaterial technologies
  • Design, processing, and characterization of color centers in diamond
  • CubeSats science: from cute to curious
  • Complimentary sensors, methods and testing for GPS denied position, navigation and timing
  • Bending, trapping and slowing down light beams for sensing, imaging and energy harvesting
Papers are solicited on the following and related topics:
  • Innovative micro- (MEMS) and nanofabrication, materials, devices and systems
  • Micro/nanotechnologies for healthcare applications
  • On-body or in vivo sensors and electronics monitoring human performance or physiological conditions in real time
  • MEMS and nanotechnologies for CBRNE detection and mitigation
  • Nanophotonics
  • Standoff detection and characterization of chemicals with quantum cascade and ultrafast lasers
  • Novel micro/nanosensors for harsh environment applications
  • Nanoscale adaptive response sensors and nanomaterial substrates
  • Nano- and microscale materials for photovoltaic and photoelectrochemical energy harvesting.
