Dear Prospective Commercial Supporters of MEMS 2014,
As General Chairs of the 27th IEEE International Conference on Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS 2014), we would like to formally invite you to participate as a member of the MEMS Benefactor Group. The Conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco, 26-30 January 2014, in the vibrant Embarcadero district of San Francisco. We anticipate over 700 academic and industrial engineers and scientists from around the world to attend. San Francisco Bay Area with nearby Silicon Valley is an especially strong draw for the MEMS global community because of its highly concentrated manufacturers and users of related products as well as world-leading research institutes, not to mention its tourist attraction.
Covering the highest quality research and development on micro devices and systems, MEMS 2014 is totally self-supporting and relies on contributions and tuition to offset all expenses. The goal of the MEMS Benefactor Group is to assist in keeping the tuition rate as low as possible, which should enhance the potential number of participants being able to attend.
There are various levels of involvement to participate as a member of the MEMS Benefactor Group. Parallel to the Technical Program is an exhibit area displaying products and services relevant to researchers in the MEMS field, i.e. vendors of books and journals, processing equipment, test equipment, materials, CAD tools, or MEMS processing, design, and test services. If not interested in becoming an exhibitor, your company or institute might be interested in becoming a patron of MEMS 2014.
Noteworthy this year is the introduction of a new paper submission category on 'industry research and development,' which will promote industrial attendance at the conference more than ever before and provide an opportunity for technical exchange at all levels amongst the academic and industrial members of the MEMS community.
As the flagship meeting in the field, the MEMS Conference attracts world leaders in MEMS by offering a top quality, single session technical program of the current state-of-the-art papers combined with networking opportunities. This is a great opportunity to expose your company to the key players of MEMS and introduce your equipment, materials, and services to the potential users from all over the world in one place.
We are looking forward to another successful conference in 2014 and hope that your company will seriously consider participating as an MEMS Benefactor Group Member.
We look forward to seeing you in January 2014 in San Francisco!
