Working Together to Solve Technical Challenges and Increase Value across the MEMS and Sensors Supply Chain

MEMS & Sensors Industry Group has been hosting its annual technical conference since 2001, we look forward to hosting our 2017 event with our Strategic Association Partner, SEMI. Building directly upon the theme and issues emanating from the 2016 MEMS & Sensors Executive Congress, the 2017 MEMS & Sensors Technical Congress (MSTC) will take a closer look at how companies in the MEMS and sensors supply chain can thrive in a challenging environment. Among the key challenges facing the industry today are:

  • Creating higher integration devices with lower power
  • Cybersecurity/security at the sensor node
  • Energy and power management
  • Ever-expanding Internet of Things (IoT) applications requiring optimized solutions
  • Smaller and flexible form factors (including testing and packaging)
  • Cloud/fog/edge computing
  • A tsunami of data on the near horizon that will require machine learning
  • Migrating from component provider to systems solution provider

The 2017 MSTC will focus on these and other challenges with thought-provoking technical content and breakout sessions that will delve deeper into the issues and possible solutions. We are looking for compelling abstracts from speakers who will address the aforementioned topics and have recommendations for moving the industry forward to meet these challenges to commercialization from a technical perspective.

The deadline for submission was January 11, 2017.
