The Technical Committee on Micro- and Nanosystems (MNS), an integral part
of the ASME Design Engineering Division, is organizing a symposium on Micro
and Nano Mechanisms and Robotics. This symposium will provide a forum for
the dissemination of both experimental and theoretical contributions in
this multi-disciplinary field.  Micro and Nano Mechanisms and Robotics is
an emerging area with a tremendous potential to revolutionize manufacturing
of nanostructures, nanosensors, and nanoactuators, and to enable new
applications in medicine.   Submissions from researchers both within and
outside of the traditional mechanical engineering are strongly encouraged.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

1. Micro and nano assembly and manipulation of components aimed at
constructing micro/nano mechanisms, robots and devices.
2. The design, characterization, fabrication and use of micro and nano
robots and mechanisms in emerging applications.
3. Algorithms and deployment schemes for large numbers of micro and nano
robots that are scalable and efficient in utilizing limited energy,
sensing, computational and communication resources available.
