Please consider participating at HARMNST 2013 and submitting an extended abstract. Abstracts are one to two pages in length, including graphs and references. Peer reviewed and accepted abstracts will be included in the HARMNST 2013 Book of Abstracts.

Abstracts are requested in all areas relevant to high aspect ratio technologies, including, but not limited, to

  • Nano and Micro Pattern Generation – Lithography: UV, E-beam, X-ray, proton, resists
  • Nano imprint lithography: Surface features, processes, materials
  • Nano and Micro Replication: Injection moulding, compression moulding, blow moulding, polymer and glass moulding, electroforming
  • Micro and nano machining: 3D and surface structures, replication moulds
  • Micro and Nano laser patterning: Laser writing, laser ablation
  • Metrology of Micro and nano structures: Structural dimensions, mechanical and optical characteristics, surface characteristics
  • Applications: Mechanical, fluidic, optical electromagnetic

Additionally, we intend to foster lively discussions. Based on abstracts submitted, we plan to have a Focus Session, addressing the whole food chain from R&D to commercialization in key enabling technologies like biotechnology (such as fluidic devices) and optics and photonics (like diffractive optical structures). Presentations in this session would comprise a broad range of aspects, including industrial needs, fabrication technology capabilities and restrictions, metrology, and testing. These will likely surface partially contradicting requirements, and lead to a subsequent open discussion.

Abstract submission deadline is February 8, 2013. Please use template information. Upload as pdf-file only!

To submit your abstract, please see Abstract Submission

The abstract submission is closed (since March 22nd)!

When submitting, you will also be asked for a self assessment with respect to which topic(s) would fit best for your contribution, and whether you would be willing to participate in the Focus Session/Case Model.
You will also be asked to identify the preferred presentation style for your contribution (oral, poster, either).

HARMNST attendees are invited to submit a full paper during the conference. Reviewed and accepted papers have traditionally been published in a special edition of Microsystem Technologies (Springer).
