                             dMEMS 2010
                Besançon, France, June 28-29th 2010.


                Technically co-sponsored by IEEE France

                Paper submission:  January 15th, 2010.

---> NEW : A selection of extended best papers will be published in 
Journal of Mechatronics, Elsevier (www.elsevier.com/locate/mechatronics).


In the last few years, MEMS technologies have pushed back the limits 
further in terms of miniaturization so that it is now possible to design 
complex and multifunctional MEMS in restricted spaces. Distributed MEMS 
specifically considered in this Workshop integrate a high number of 
elementary components (actuators, sensors). Such MEMS involve various 
applications such as micromanipulation, the active control of structures 
or locomotion and they raise specific issues either in the design or in 
the coordination of all the components: automatic control, software, 
communication networks, computing power. New solutions for MEMS design, 
modelisation, distributed control, networking and information management 
in MEMS have to be considered.

The objective of dMEMS is to bring together researchers and engineers 
from the fields of microsystems, computer science, networking and 
control in order to present, to discuss and to facilitate the sharing of 
knowledge at the highest scientific and technical levels. 
Inter-disciplinary experiences that connect these different fields will 
be greatly appreciated. Topics of particular interest include, but are 
not limited to:

-Design, implementation and technologies
    * Microactuator technology
    * Microactuators array

Besançon is the capital and main city of the Franche-Comté region in 
Eastern France. Located close to the border with Switzerland, it is the 
capital of the Doubs department. The city has one of the most beautiful 
historical centres in any major town in France. The old town, "la 
Boucle", is enclosed in a broad horse-shoe loop of the river Doubs, 
which is blocked off at the neck by Vauban's imposing Citadelle. The 
historical centre features a remarkable ensemble of classic stone 
buildings, some dating back to the Middle Ages. The citadel, the city 
walls and Fort Griffon were added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage 
Sites in 2008, as part of the "Fortifications of Vauban" group.
