Workshop on Nano and Micro Manufacturing

Workshop Sponsors

A distinguishing feature of the Workshop on Nano/Micro Manufacturing is the emphasis on the needs of manufacturers and technology users. Through sponsorship we seek to enhance the attendee experience and support invited speakers.

Attendees will include leading researchers and industrial practitioners in the fields of nano and micro materials, devices, and systems. Users and manufacturers will be able to network and discuss how to meet their needs for new and improved products.
