Technical Programme

Sunday 5 May 2002

13:00-19:00 Meeting of NEXUS User-Supplier Club "Design and Simulation (USC CAD)"
The NEXUS USC CAD brings together commercial and academic suppliers of microsystems design tools and their users. Design flows of industry-oriented microsystems designers and their future needs will be discussed. Design tool suppliers will give an update on their latest features. The aim of the meeting is to discuss a Òmicrosystems design tool roadmapÓ between suppliers and users of design tools. The meeting is open to further participants who like to contribute to the discussion. In addition to design tool experts, we encourage design tool users to participate and discuss their design flows including problems and demands.
Participation is free of charge, but due to limited space, advance registration by email to P. Salomon is required.
A Workshop on Design Approaches for MEMS will take place on Tuesday 7 May.
