John Oxaal of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute receives First Prize for his poster, "Electrostatic MEMS Vibration Energy Harvester"

The ASME Nanoengineering Council is pleased to announce the return of the ASME Society-Wide Micro & Nano Technology Forum at the International Mechanical Engineering Congress & Expo (IMECE) 2013, taking place November 15–21 in San Diego, California. This Forum seeks to bring together ASME members and others from different disciplines and divisions with a focus on micro and nanotechnology. In 2012, the forum displayed more than 200 posters for over 500 attendees, including executive leaders of NSF and ASME.

Students and post-docs are invited to submit abstracts for their posters in the categories of Materials, Bioengineering, Applied Mechanics, Fluids, MEMS, EPPD, and Heat Transfer. These submissions will compete for the Best Poster Awards — honors that come with cash prizes — as well as a certificate signed by the ASME President. This year, the Electronics and Photonics Packaging and MEMS Divisions will sponsor poster awards. This event is a great opportunity for applicants to have their work seen by an Award Selection Panel comprising leaders from academia, industry, and government funding agencies.

To get involved, submit a one-page abstract of your poster—including title, authors, and affiliations—to the IMECE website Track 16-16. For more information, contact Christine Reilley at
