Including Workshop

Design for Micro & Nano Manufacture

This Symposium will be a follow-up to the very successful issues held in 1999 and 2000 in Paris, in 2001, 2002 and 2003 in Mandelieu-La Napoule and 2004 in Montreux Switzerland. This series of Symposia is a unique single-meeting event expressly planned to bring together participants interested in manufacturing microstructures and participants interested in design tools to facilitate the conception of these microstructures. Again, a special emphasis will be put on the very crucial needs of MEMS/MOEMS in terms of packaging solutions. The goal of the Symposium is to provide a forum for in-depth investigations and interdisciplinary discussions involving design, modeling, testing, micromachining, microfabrication, integration and packaging of structures, devices, and systems.
We look forward to welcoming you to Montreux and encourage you to participate by submitting an abstract for one of the two Conferences.

A Workshop on "Design for Micro & Nano Manufacture" is planned to take place on 30/31 May in conjunction with DTIP.
This workshop will feature intermediate results from the new European Network of Excellence "Design for Micro & Nano Manufacture (Patent-DfMM)", and also discuss industry's needs in this area. PATENT-DfMM aims to establish a collaborative team to provide European industry with support in the field of "Design for Micro and Nano Manufacture (DfMM)" to ensure that problems affecting the manufacturing and reliability of products based on micro nano technologies (MNT) can be addressed before prototyping and production.
Contact: Patric Salomon.
  Plenary invited talks
Plenary invited talks given by prominent speakers will include:
Takahito Ono,
Tohoku University, Japan
Micro/Nanomechanical Instrumentations for Nanoengineering
Miniaturized microtools based on recent nano/micromachining technology increase its importance in nanoscale science and engineering. Micro/nano probes for nanometric sensing and processing, including multi probes for scientific measurement and data storage, near-field optical probe with tweezers, ultra-sensitive mass and force sensors will be presented.

MicroFluidic Cell Manipulation and Modification Devices
This paper presents recent developments in BioMEMS for flow cytometry. Biological cells flowing into microfulidic channels can be manipulated, analysed and modified by electrical field that are applied in micro-electrodes. Dielectrophoresis (DEP) forces is be used to filter, separate or trap cells. Single cell analysis is preformed by electrical impedance spectroscopy by comparing impedance spectra (real and imaginary part) at different frequencies. High electrical field in micro-channels can also be used to perform electroporation at the single cell level.
