MEMS Executive Congress Sponsorships are Hot!

Thanks to overwhelming demand for MEMS Executive Congress sponsorships, MIG is pleased to announce a new Bronze category of sponsorship for the November 2011 event in Monterey, CA.  Included with the Bronze sponsorship is one complimentary pass to MEMS Executive Congress, inclusion of your company in pre and post event press releases and marketing materials, signage, event web site and program. For complete details and benefits, please visit the MEMS Executive Congress web site.  There is a special discount for MIG members and returning sponsors from Congress 2010.

We have several press releases, advisories and marketing activities planned for the next few weeks, so you are strongly encouraged to contact MIG if you are interested in the Bronze sponsorship or any of the other remaining sponsorship spots. You’ll get more “bang for your buck” if you sign up now, rather than sign up just before the Congress. And yes, to answer your question, we have sold the Restroom Sponsor!

In its seventh year, MEMS Executive Congress is the executive conference that connects the MEMS supply chain with MEMS end-users. Through keynotes, panel discussions, and numerous networking opportunities, MEMS Executive Congress creates an intimate forum for decision-makers to grow the global MEMS market.

Explore “MEMS Sensor Fusion/Sensor Networks”

November 2-3, 2011
Monterey Plaza Resort & Spa
An annual executive forum promoting the commercialization of MEMS

As engineers combine MEMS devices with integrated circuits to create feature-rich heterogeneous environments, embedded systems have become more complex. Now smartphones may include accelerometers, gyroscopes, magnetometers, silicon microphones, RF MEMS, and even micro-displays, to produce a “full package” of intelligence for end-user applications. These new systems require “sensor fusion,” which intelligently combines data, software and processing from different sensors (including MEMS). And while consumer products and automotive systems top the list for high-volume MEMS consumption, biomedical/healthcare, industrial and energy increasingly use MEMS technology as well.

The panel will discuss the critical issues affecting MEMS systems integration such as: What is the future of “MEMS sensor fusion”—integrating MEMS with ICs and software in the same application (and even the same package) while meeting or exceeding cost, power and performance requirements? How are MEMS sensors producing more intelligent, and pervasive, wireless networks? How might technologies such as Hewlett-Packard’s “Central Nervous System of the Earth” (CeNSE) change our information infrastructure—and what is its potential impact on society?

Featured Speakers

Moderator: Michael Jamiolkowski, President & CEO, Coventor

Panelists:

Please join us Thursday, November 3, 2011, 1:45-2:30 p.m., for the panel, MEMS Sensor Fusion/Sensor Networks, at the seventh annual MEMS Executive Congress.

Register today for MEMS Executive Congress

As a business rather than a technical conference, MEMS Executive Congress provides a unique forum for MEMS solution providers and OEM integrators to exchange ideas and information during panel discussions and networking events. This truly unique two-day event is the year’s must-attend conference for the entire MEMS supply chain.

MEMS Suppliers and OEM End-users to Explore “MEMS in the Mainstream” at MEMS Executive Congress 2011

Business execs to discuss future capabilities, investment opportunities, foundry models; analysts to share market research

MEMS Industry Group (MIG) hosts MEMS Executive Congress 2011, the annual business conference and networking event for the MEMS industry, November 2-3, 2011 in Monterey, CA. Keynote speakers include strategy consultant Aaron Schulman, business director, Toffler Associates, who will explain how global drivers of change will radically transform the behavior of individuals and societies; Scott Livingston, CEO, Livingston Securities, who will examine financing innovation in public markets; and Per Asberg, program director, client partnerships, IBM Rational, who will describe IBM’s role in helping to streamline the development design process for systems in automobiles, electronics and medical devices. Several industry panels and the event’s first application showcase complete the MEMS Executive Congress conference program.

“The MEMS industry is hot,” said Karen Lightman, managing director, MEMS Industry Group. “With double-digit growth rates, volume production surging at captive and commercial foundries, and vertical markets such as consumer, automotive, industrial and biomedical driving new demand for a wide range of MEMS devices, the MEMS industry is well poised for continued growth. Providing a unique brand of information-sharing among MEMS suppliers and OEM end-users, MEMS Executive Congress is the perfect forum for understanding and predicting this growth. If you are in any way connected to the MEMS industry, you must attend MEMS Executive Congress.”
