Conference Theme

Papers are invited that present original research and development in processes and process chains for multi-material nano/micro/meso scale manufacture, in particular but not limited to:

  • Components: fabrication technologies and process chains
  • Systems: novel product designs and assembly technologies
  • Process modelling and simulation
  • Process characterisation including process chains
  • Metrology: on-line monitoring and inspection systems/methods
