GDMS 2011
International Workshop on Green Devices and Micro Systems
9th February 2011   AIST Tsukuba, Japan
Sponsored by NEDO, Beans Laboratory, MMC, NPO-PEN
Organized byFGDC@Beans Laboratory, UMEMSME/AIST

   Wireless networked sensing is now a target of interest for health monitoring and preventive medical applications. Environmental monitoring for energy management is also attracting special attentions for reduction of energy consumption in our society, for example industries, offices and homes etc. Japanese government has launched the national project of Green Device for energy management by sensor network at 2010.
  Above mentioned is the reason why this symposium is organized for further development of this technology and establishment of international collaboration for global sustainability.
  The workshop scope includes the topics as follows;
1) Design, integration and fabrication of Wireless sensors nodes, referred to as networked Microsystems
2) Ultra-low-power (ULP) MEMS sensors and energy-harvesting MEMS
3) Wireless sensor nodes for practical applications to green and life innovation
4) MEMS processes with low environmental impact
5) Related topics on micro systems
