2018 Winter Topical Meeting

Precision Engineering for Micro and Nanotechnology

Thursday – Friday, February 1-2, 2018
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Livermore, California, USA

Meeting Chairperson:
Robert M. Panas, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

The American Society for Precision Engineering’s Micro-Nano Technical Leadership Committee (ASPE MNTLC) is hosting a winter technical conference to review the current state-of-the-art in the application of precision engineering principals of deterministic engineering to micro and nanotechnologies. The precision micro/nano field is defined by a specific focus on resolving or exploiting small-scale dependent issues that occur in the standard fields of precision engineering (manufacturing, assembly, motion, metrology, design, etc). This meeting will feature the following:

  • oral technical paper presentations
  • reviews of the state of the art of the various areas of the application of precision engineering to micro and nanotechnologies
  • lightning session presentations by all attendees to facilitate networking
  • technical tours of the lab facilities at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

The meeting will provide many opportunities for learning, networking, and recruiting. Participants from academia, industry, and national labs are encouraged to submit short abstracts of their work to help facilitate interactive discussions during the conference.

The conference will be held at LLNL in Livermore CA on Thursday Feb 1st and Friday Feb 2nd, timed to coincide with the end of Photonics West in San Francisco CA. The Thursday night pre-conference socialization will be combined with tours of LLNL and an evening welcoming dinner. The Friday schedule will contain the main conference, compressed to a single day to maximize usefulness to attendees. Sessions and presentations will kick off Friday morning, with an opportunity for each attendee to present on their group’s focus during lightning sessions, interspaced with featured presentations. This will provide all attendees the ability to sample the state-of-the-art and identify connections to follow up on during the afternoon open poster session, including vendors, academics and national laboratory members.

Participation is limited to 60.
