International Conference on Micromanufacturing
The 9th International Conference on MicroManufacturing (ICOMM 2014) organized by the International Institution of Micro Manufacturing (I2M2) will be held in Singapore March 25-28th, 2014. It is hosted jointly by Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and National University of Singapore (NUS).
ICOMM 2014 focuses on the processes, equipment, and systems for fabricating miniature parts with micro-scale features. Many fields, including medical, aerospace, military/defense, optics, automotive, consumer products, and communications, have been increasingly demanding such miniature parts with complex micro-scale features made from a wide selection of materials. Some current applications of miniature parts with dimensions ranging from a few micrometers to tens of millimeters include - miniature motors and turbines, micro-satellites, implantable medical devices, minimally invasive surgical equipment, micro robots, and miniature molds and dies. Miniature parts are expected to be in increasing demand in the future.

We look forward to seeing you in Singapore in 2014.
Papers are sought to address theoretical and applied research issues related to manufacture, assembly, and metrology for components and systems with micro-scale features. Papers are also sought that describe interesting applications of both current and emerging micromanufacturing methods and equipment, including those that bridge the nano- and macro- worlds.
All papers must be technical in nature and include original work. Copyrights remain with the authors.
Topics may include, but are not limited to, mechanics and dynamics of process behavior at the microscale; the miniaturization of machines and equipment as well as associated issues such as tooling, fixturing, positioning, motion generation, sensors systems, and control; the microfactory paradigm; new concepts and methods for micro-scale metrology; materials handling, joining, and assembly at the micro-scale; multi-scale modeling and simulation; design for micro-scale manufacturing; and materials-related issues at the micro-scale. A broad range of processes will be considered including machining, forming, EDM and ECM, laser-based processing, casting and molding, and others.
