Call for Poster Sessions & Program Abstracts

The nation’s best regional “small tech” conference, co-hosted by the Washington Technology Center and Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute (ONAMI) will be back for a sixth year after last year’s highly successful event. You are invited to participate!

Prospective authors are invited to submit abstracts to the Sixth Annual Micro Nano Breakthrough Conference. Abstracts (300 word maximum) must be submitted no later thanWednesday, March 31, 2009. Approximately 30 presentation/panelist presentations and 30 posters (on display throughout the conference and at a special 3 hour reception) will be included in the program.

You will be notified no later than Friday, May 29, 2009. If your abstract is accepted, the abstract will be distributed to all conference attendees and posted on the conference website. You will also be required to electronically submit a final abstract and short bio for the conference program, and to prepare/submit PowerPoint or poster presentation materials in accordance with conference specifications.

Topics relevant to micro and nanoscale technologies for which abstracts are especially encouraged:

Advanced MEMS devices and applications
Sensors and systems, e.g. for motion control
Nanoelectronics and biolectronics
Nanoscale patterning and fabrication processes
Printed and solution-processed devices and systems
Nanomaterial design, synthesis and scale-up
Nanomaterials for clean-tech applications
Nano-bio technologies
Micro-energy and chemical systems
Nanoscale imaging and chemical analysis
Nanomedicine and cancer therapies
Nano-optics and optoelectronic technologies

Tentative session format:
Ten presentation sessions will be selected from the above topic list, and will have the following format:

One overview paper covering the state-of-the-art and needed breakthroughs
One cutting-edge research paper (university or national laboratory)
One commercialization/new product development paper (industry or later stage startup company)

Contributors of presentation abstracts will be asked to identify which category they are submitting for.
