MSW is the Nordic forum for microsystems and nanotechnology. It offers an overview of Nordic academic and industrial research into MEMS, microfluidics and nanosystems. Program consists of invited and contributed talks, poster session and start-up panel discussion.
A key factor has been the informal atmosphere which has stimulated many interesting contacts and projects at the previous workshops. Some participants know much about microsystems, others have a strong application know-how, while still others have ideas or a general curiosity.
MSW2018 is the first MSW organized in Finland. The venue is in the freshly renovated conference center Dipoli, serving nowadays also as the main building of the Aalto University. Previous MSWs were held in Sweden, in Uppsala in 1994, 1996, 1998 and 2014, in Stockholm/Bålsta in 2002, in Ystad in 2004, in Västerås in 2006, in Göteborg in 2008, in Stockholm in 2010, in Linköping in 2012 and in Lund in 2016.
Our program also includes two social events. A get-together event is organized in Dipoli lounge on Sunday 13th at 19:00 and canapés and drinks will be served. The workshop dinner will be held in restaurant Metso, Dipoli, on Monday 14th at 19:00.
