ABOUT M2M FORUM
M2M Forum is a one-of-a-kind technical conference, for MIG members*, with a focus on tackling critical MEMS commercialization challenges. M2M Forum is a neutral forum for discussion, bringing together foundries, equipment vendors, research groups, large companies, start-ups, buyers, suppliers, and other stakeholders for solutions knowledge, networking and resources to support your company’s imminent MEMS commercialization needs.
For complete information about M2M Forum, please visit www.memsindustrygroup.org/m2m
To submit your proposal, please email your paper title and abstract to Monica Takacs at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also contact Monica with your questions.
For your submission to be considered, it MUST be received by February 29, 2012.
- The paper abstracts will be judged by MIG’s Technical Advisory Committee.
- The top five selected papers will be given free registration to M2M Forum and the paper will be included in the M2M Forum conference workbook.
- The author of the best paper will be invited to present the paper at M2M Forum.
- All other papers that are deemed relevant will be included in the M2M Forum conference materials and their authors will be given a coupon code for $50 off of registration to M2M Forum.
Selected authors will be notified the week of April 2, 2012. We look forward to receiving your proposal!
*Although M2M Forum is a members-only conference, this “call for papers” is open to the entire MEMS industry. If you are a non-member and your paper is selected, you will still be able to attend the event by invitation of MEMS Industry Group.
