Micromachines Upcoming Events Announce Your Event Here

31 October–2 November 2017 The 8th Symposium on Micro-Nano Science and Technology

Hiroshima, Japan

Micro-Nano Science & Technology Division in JSME (Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers) promotes academic activities to pioneer novel research topics on microscopic mechanics. The division encourages interdisciplinary studies to deeply understand physical/chemical/biological phenomena in micro/nano scale and to develop applied technologies. Since 2009, past seven symposiums on Micro-Nano Science & Technology have taken place successfully incorporating with the related societies of electronics and applied physics. We have promoted in-depth studies and interactions between researchers/engineers in various fields with more than 160 papers presented at each symposium for the past few years.

Today we are pleased to announce that “the 8th Symposium on Micro-Nano Science and Technology” will be held from October 31 through November 2, 2017 in Hiroshima, Japan. Two cooperative symposiums will be held in the same venue and at the same time. We invite original contributions as research papers and look forward to fruitful discussions.

25–28 August 2017 1st International Conference on Micro/Nanomachines

Wuhan, China

Micro/nanomachines are able to automatically move and perform complex tasks. They are promising to make revolutionary changes in many fields, such as biomedicine, micro/nanoengineering, environmental monitoring and remediation, food safety, and security. In order to promote the development of micro/nanomachines, three symposia were successfully organized in September 2012 (Dresden), July 2014 (Hannover) and July 2016 (Hannover). It is worth celebrating that in 2016, the Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded jointly to Jean-Pierre Sauvage, Sir J. Fraser Stoddart and Bernard L. Feringa for their outstanding achievements in the design and synthesis of molecular machines. This event is a milestone and has encouraged a growing number of researchers to be devoted to this attractive field, bringing out many amazing results in designing, understanding, and applying micro/nanomachines. Simultaneously, there are still great challenges to address as well as marvelous prospects to realize. In order to promote these advancements, the ICMNM 2017 to be held in Wuhan on August 25-28, 2017 will provide a perfect venue for global researchers interested in micro/nanomachines to share results, build friendships, establish collaborations and spark ideas. This conference will focus on the theme “Propulsion at Micro/nanoscale”, which includes three sessions: micro/nanomotors (active colloids), molecular and DNA machines, and microactuators. More than 200 researchers from around the world are expected to attend this conference. We are confident that you will enjoy this upcoming conference. Welcome you to join us and to visit Wuhan, where you will enjoy Chinese Chu culture and Han Show at the same time!

18–22 September 2017 43rd International Conference on Micro and NanoEngineering

Braga, Portugal

In September 2017, the 43rd edition of MNE will be held at INL – International Iberian Nanotechnology, in Braga – Portugal. This is a great opportunity to reinforce links within this international community and to be enjoy Portugal, the hospitality, the culture, the people and the Atlantic coast climate and of course the excellent food & wine.

MNE2017 is the major annual conference devoted to micro and nano-engineering and manufacturing, held in a an European country every September. The Conference brings together engineers and scientists from across the world to discuss recent progress and future trends in research, fabrication, and applications of micro and nano devices. MNE usually attracts about 800 -1000 participants (>600 papers) and is the premier European conference in micro and nanotechnology on the following subjects:

  • Micro and Nanolithography;
  • Micro and Nanofabrication/Engineering;
  • Micro and Nano devices and their applications in engineering science (MEMS, NEMS, MicroOptics, Photovoltaic,…);
  • Micro and Nano devices and their applications in Life Science (µTAS, BioMEMS, Microfluidic Devices,…).

The program and layout have been structured to maximize the opportunity for participants to visit the technical exhibition during the coffee breaks and poster sessions.

This year we look forward to welcoming you to Braga and to INL!

4–6 October 2017 The 3rd Conference on MicroFluidic Handling Systems

Enschede, The Netherlands

Worldwide, accurate handling (e.g. dosing, measurement and control) of small and extremely small mass flow rates of both gases and liquids is becoming more and more important, driven by numerous economically important applications in for instance semiconductor industry, analytical instrumentation, food, pharmacy, energy, bioanalytical systems, and micro reaction systems.

The focus of this conference is mainly on the technology, components, devices and systems that enable the application and biology in microfluidic systems. We invite submission of papers on systems and devices for accurate handling (e.g. dosing, measurement and control) of (extremely) small mass flow rates of both gases and liquids, and corresponding measurement and control principles.
