Scope of the Workshop
The twelfth in the series of Hilton Head Workshops on the science and technology of solid-state sensors, actuators, and microsystems will be held on June 4 - 8, 2006. The Workshop provides a highly interactive forum for North and South American researchers to present and discuss recent advances in microfabrication technologies for sensing and actuation devices and microsystems for physical, chemical, and biological applications. Topics include: new sensor, actuator, and microsystems concepts, device and process modeling/design, device fabrication including all aspects of microfabrication, nanotechnology, materials and methods of processing, circuits for sensors and actuators, system applications and issues including data analysis, and packaging technologies for interfacing sensors and actuators to the application environment.
As a new component of the workshop, the topic of "MEMS Education" has been added. This will stimulate dialog to improve MEMS education in the Americas. Abstract submissions related to the following topics are of particular interest: MEMS curricula, interdisciplinary studies, continuing MEMS education, and the opportunities that Universities have in preparing students for meeting the needs of industry. Submitted abstract should follow the same guidelines as regular abstract submissions and will be subject to the same deadlines. Based on the abstracts received, the Technical Program Committee will determine how best to incorporate this topics into the workshop.

The Workshop will be held at the Crowne Plaza Resort on Hilton Head Island, SC. It will be a single-session meeting, with ample time allotted for discussion of each paper, and with blocks of unscheduled time to encourage informal interactions among participants. There will be ten oral sessions and a contributed poster session. Manuscripts of papers presented in these sessions will be included in the Workshop Technical Digest. There will also be late-news and open poster sessions to encourage participants to discuss informally very recent results, work in progress, and results recently presented elsewhere. The conference has reserved several oral presentations and contributed poster session slots in the program for "Late News" papers. "Late News" papers, as submitted, will be accepted for presentation and will be published in the technical digest. "Late News" papers will be limited to two pages in length and must follow the submission procedure in the instructions. Open posters will not be included in the Technical Digest. Please see late-news and open posters on this website for further information.
Applying to Attend
Attendance will be limited to 450 participants, with preference given to authors. Prospective participants, INCLUDING AUTHORS, should complete an application on this website.
