Technical innovations in design, process, materials, packaging, and test have enabled widespread commercialization of breakthrough MEMS products. MEMS sensing applications will track growth in mobile, industrial, consumer and biomedical markets, enabled by innovations in functional sophistication, cost-reduction, and productivity.
This conference will showcase advances in these technologies that form advances in MEMS products, to achieve future capabilities, enabled by innovations unthinkable a decade ago.

We are pleased to have Dr. Kurt Peterson as our Keynote Speaker.
Petersen received his BS degree cum laude in EE from UC Berkeley in 1970. In 1975, he received a Ph.D. in EE from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dr. Petersen established a micromachining research group at IBM from 1975 to 1982, during which he wrote the review paper "Silicon as a Mechanical Material," published in the IEEE Proceedings (May 1982). This paper is still the most frequently referenced work in the field of micromachining and micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS).
Since 1982, Dr. Petersen has co-founded six successful companies in MEMS technology, all of which have become technical and commercial leaders in the field of MEMS devices and applications.
In 2011, Dr. Petersen joined the Band of Angels in Silicon Valley. The Band is an angel investment group which mentors and invests in early stage, high-tech, start-up companies.
Dr. Petersen has published over 100 papers, and has been granted over 35 patents in the field of MEMS.
