Call for Abstracts: MSEC 2018



Deadline for Abstracts:
July 6, 2018

Notification of Acceptance:
August 10, 2018

Final Presentation Due for Review:
October 1, 2018


The MEMS & Sensors Industry Group (MSIG) and 2018 MSEC Speaker Selection Committee invite you to submit:

  • An abstract for a paper, TechTalk (cf., TedTalk)
  • Demonstration at the MSEC 2018 Technology Showcase 



The theme of the MEMS & Sensors Executive Congress (MSEC) 2018 is Sensor Systems Enabling Autonomous Mobility.”  Autonomous Mobility is often thought about when discussing vehicles, yet it can equally apply today when we consider wearables, the point of care medical devices, food delivery and agriculture platforms and remote monitoring systems such as environmental, weather, energy, industrial IoT, etc. MSEC 2018  will focus on system-level solutions for these areas incorporating MEMS/sensor and actuators, unique applications and innovative technological or market solutions. Speakers will elucidate unique application requirements, system level architecture, integration challenges and how to manage and overcome them successfully. We are inviting topics from across the entire MEMS/sensors supply chain as it pertains to the impact Autonomous Mobility will have. 


As the premier information-gathering and networking conference for industry stakeholders, MSEC brings together 200+ executives, product managers, business development professionals, and engineering directors from the MEMS and sensors value chain, and attracts leading industry analysts and media. This year’s conference will take place on Sunday—Tuesday, October 28–30, at the exclusive Silverado Resort in Napa Valley, California.


How to Submit an Abstract

To submit an abstract, complete the ONLINE FORM and upload your abstract (100-250 words) describing the topic of your presentation and how it applies to the MEMS & Sensors industry. There is no fee for submission. SEMI MSIG members will receive priority consideration.
