Abstract Submission Deadline
December 4th 2012

TRANSDUCERS conference is the largest multidisciplinary conference on Microsensors, Microactuators and Microsystems, with about more than 1000 attendees from university, research institute, government and industry who gather every two years to exchange the latest advances in the field. The coming Transducers'13 conference is the 17th international conference on solid-state sensors, actuators and Microsystems of the TRANSDUCERS conference series started at 1981 in Boston (USA), and it is the first time for this conference to be held in Spain. The conference will feature four days of presentations and posters highlighting the latest and most technically advanced work in mechanical, optical, chemical, and biological devices and systems using micro- and nano-technology. Work of both a fundamental and applied nature will be featured.

Transducers'13 conference invites contributions describing the latest scientific and technological research results. The major areas of activity in the development of Transducers solicited and expected at this conference include but are not limited to:

1. Mechanical/Physical Sensors and Microsystems

2. Materials, Fabrication and Packaging Technologies

3. Nanoscale Materials, Devices and Fabrication

4. Chemical Sensors and Microsystems

5. Bio-Sensors and Bio-Microsystems

6. Medical Microsystems

7. Microfluidics

... etc.
