MEMS Industry Group hosts 10th annual MEMS Executive Congress US MEMS Industry Group (MIG) will host MEMS Executive Congress US 2014, an annual business conference and networking event for the MEMS and sensors industry, November 5-7, 2014 in Scottsdale, AZ. Spanning environmental sensors for safe drinking water to personalized healthcare, cybersecurity for connected systems, and spectral imaging in wearable devices, micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and sensors enable human-machine interactions in unprecedented ways. “This year’s MEMS Executive Congress US speakers reflect some of the most fascinating uses of MEMS and sensors in commercial applications,” said Karen Lightman, executive director, MEMS Industry Group. “Ayasdi is tracking disease via smartphone. MoboSens uses a smartphone sensor to monitor nitrate in drinking water. VTT’s microspectromers are likely to be used for skin cancer analysis, among many other uses. GE is advancing MRI. Wurldtech’s technology protects critical infrastructure for oil and gas, smart grid and medical devices. And those are just a few of our speakers who will enlighten the C-level audience about maximizing the potential of MEMS and sensors — the theme of this year’s MEMS Executive Congress. Equally exciting, Congress attendees will also hear from entrepreneurs, academic innovators and one of the world’s largest foundries, TSMC.” Featured Events For the third year in a row, MIG’s popular MEMS and Sensors Technology Showcase will give Congress attendees an up-close and personal experience with some of the most compelling MEMS- and sensors-enabled products ever invented. MIG’s second annual Elevator Pitch Session will give early-stage MEMS and sensors companies a platform for reaching potential investors. MIG’s annual Best in MEMS and Sensors Innovation Awards will celebrate outstanding achievements in the MEMS and sensors industry. Now in its tenth year, MEMS Executive Congress is an annual event that brings together business leaders from a broad spectrum of industries: automotive, consumer goods, energy/environmental, industrial, medical and telecom. It is a unique professional forum at which executives from companies designing and manufacturing MEMS/sensors technology sit side-by-side with their end-user customers in panel discussions and networking events to exchange ideas and information about the use of MEMS and sensors in commercial applications.
