About the Event

Micro/Nano Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS/NEMS) and devices are poised to revolutionize communications, instrumentation, and computational systems. To date, their deployment in emerging applications in health care, environment, and industrial processing, and defense and security has been impeded by a lack of understanding of the fundamental multi-physics/multi-scale phenomena that govern their performance. Modeling and simulation of MEMS/NEMS and nano/micro-fluidic devices provide interpretive and predictive framework for understanding the complexity of interactions between various physical domains and size scales, failure mechanisms, and sensitivity to operational variations.

This Symposium brings together leading researchers in this field to review recent progress and latest developments and review future challenges in NEMS/MEMS and Micro/Nano Fluidics.
The Symposium will also be a platform:
  • to educate students and researchers in the NNIN user community;
  • for information exchange and networking for attendees from industry, academia, and software developers;
  • to identify primary obstacles and the breakthroughs needed to address them;
  • for fostering collaborations between the computational and experimental communities;
  • to identify simulation tools that can be easily and widely made available to the research community.
