PowerMEMS in Action
Power MEMS in Action - A Hands-On Demonstration Session at PowerMEMS 2018
Power MEMS in Action is a special session in the PowerMEMS 2018 program that is specifically dedicated to table-top demonstrations of micro power sources and small-scale energy harvesting systems. The maturity of power MEMS has evolved significantly over the past decade and multiple technologies have reached interesting levels of performance and operability. With the growing interest in wireless sensors for the Internet of Things and other distributed or portable devices, there is no better time to bring power MEMS out of the lab and into applications. The Power MEMS in Action session provides this opportunity by allowing researchers to demonstrate their technologies at the conference.
The objectives of this session are to:
Proposed demonstrations must be submitted following the same format as the regular conference abstracts. Please indicate on the submission form that your abstract is intended for the 'Power MEMS in Action' session and specify the appropriate category (Applications / Devices and Systems / Novel Concepts and Approaches). The abstract should clearly describe the principles of operation and the implementation. For devices and systems, the abstract must also provide the measured key performance metrics depending on the type of device (i.e. not simply power, but normalized by mass and acceleration, for a vibration energy harvester, or by temperature difference and area for thermal energy harvesters).
Presentation format of PowerMEMS-in-Action category
Oral presentation in this category consists of a regular oral presentation and demonstration during a designated poster session. Poster presentation in this category consists of a short oral presentation, poster presentation and demonstration during a designated poster session. In order to encourage demonstrations of prototype from industries, the four-page manuscript for the IOP Conference Series will be waived, when they have chosen the "PowerMEMS-in-Action" poster presentation category at the time of abstract submission.
