The Microsystems Annual Research Conference (MARC) is an MTL-wide forum presenting research achievements of the past year while encouraging interaction among MTL students, faculty, and industry partners. Formerly known as the MTL Student Research Review, the conference underwent an identity renovation in 2005. MARC2011 will be the seventh year of this student-led conference, but stems directly from the former MTL annual student research reviews, created by MIT professor Paul Penfield in 1990. The student reviews/MARC have been held at various locations through the years, from the MIT Endicott House to the Waterville Valley Conference and Event Center.
All grad students, postdocs, visiting scientists, and staff working within MTL, or whose advisers are MTL affiliated, are invited (and encouraged!) to submit work to be presented at the conference. The conference itself will kick-off on January 19th with a social hour, dinner, and evening session. The technical portion of the conference will begin on January 20th.
MARC 2011 is free, and registration will be open to all grad students, postdocs, visiting scientists, faculty, and staff affiliated with or working within MTL. Registration will open at a later date. Note that authors will still need to register for the conference, even if the abstract is accepted.
