AGU Fall meeting (San Francisco, Dec. 2011)
The AGU Fall Meeting is the largest worldwide conference in the geophysical sciences, attracting nearly 20,000 Earth and space scientists, educators, students, and policy makers. The meeting showcases current scientific theory focused on discoveries that will benefit humanity and ensure a sustainable future for our planet. AGU 2011 is in San Francisco, CA on Dec. 5-9th. http://www.agu.org/meetings/
As an application oriented research, MEMS and NEMS, provides a lot of potential in environmental sensing, especially in harsh geology and planetary environments. In collaborating with geochemists and astrobiologists, we have established this special session B50: Micro/Nano Sensing Technology for Extreme Environments. The purpose is to fuse our N/MEMS researchers with geology and planetary scientists: providing great geology applications to N/MEMS researchers and exploring amazing N/MEMS field for scientists.
Most terrestrial and planetary geologists in US will attend this meeting. In communication with them, there will be lots of potential applications and collaboration opportunity. We really thought that our MEMS and NEMS colleagues can contribute to the scientific development in geology by providing their tools with our expertise. And we do believe you have a unique experience in your area which can be used to develop research and applications of geology and planetary research.
We are expecting for your abstract on this topic.
The instructions for abstracts preparation look at the website:
The ideas of the sessions B50 have presented on the website:
Deadline of the abstracts submit is August 4, 2011, but we very recommend you submit your abstracts as soon as possible because the abstracts will be distributed to sessions on "a first come, first served basis". This is AGU rule.
