TECHNOLOGY SHOWCASE AT MSEC 2018

The Technology Showcase highlights the newest and most unique MEMS/sensors-enabled applications in the industry, giving startups, established companies, and R&D innovators the opportunity to demonstrate their inventions to MSEC attendees, including the pressStartups, established companies, researchers, and individuals are encouraged to submit an abstract to demo their products to over 200 senior-level executives from MEMS and sensors companies attending MSEC 2018. Each demo submission needs to clearly define which aspects of MEMS and/or sensors will be demonstrated and how. Each presenter displays the significance of the contribution that their product is making/will make on the current tech market or application. Participants have five minutes to present their demo live and five minutes for Q&A from the audience. At the conclusion of the Technology Showcase presentations, audience members vote to select the winner.

Sensor Systems Enabling Autonomous Mobility

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.
