MIG sent an industry-wide survey in March 2012 to determine the MEMS industry’s topic commercialization challenges.


MIG interviewed a variety of MEMS companies about MEMS new product development. Results will be available to attendees of M2M Forum.

Call for Papers

Submission Deadline: February 29, 2012

MEMS Industry Group® launched its first call for papers for technical paper on MEMS New Product Development to be part of the research materials for this year’s M2M Forum: Focus on MEMS New Product Development.

  • The paper abstracts were judged by MIG’s Technical Advisory Committee. 
  • The top authors were given free registration to M2M Forum and the papers will be included in the M2M Forum conference materials.
  • The author of the best paper, Mary Ann Maher, CEO, SotMEMS was invited to present the paper at M2M Forum

Steering Committee

MIG would like to that its M2M Forum steering committee for its hard work over the past several months to organize and lead the research for this event. Without their hard work and great ideas, M2M Forum would not be possible.
