The Conference
ISSS has been conducting a series of triennial International Conference on Smart Materials, Structures & Systems at Bangalore.  Apart from these, ISSS also organizes annual National level Conference  to give platform to present the research carries out in the area of MEMS, Smart materials, structures and systems.

The progress in the key focus areas of ISSS has been covered in innumerable forums all over the world, including the previous six international and five national conferences held at various parts of India. The evolution and maturing of these technologies are clearly seen over the years.  The present conference, which is the sixth in the series continues this evolutionary thread and aims to provide a forum to academicians, researchers and technologists to not only assess the current status in these technologies but also to steer towards a more effective utilization of these technologies by exploiting the strengths, recognizing and filling the gaps, and building bridges across disciplines hitherto considered as disjointed.

The topics covered in the conference are:

  1. Adaptive/smart materials and nanotechnology
  2. Sensors and Actuators
  3. MEMS : Design, electronics and packaging
  4. Signal conditioning & processing techniques related to smart materials, structures & systems
  5. Applications: Structural Health Monitoring, Automotive sensors,  BioMEMS, and RF MEMS

In addition, there will be a special session for presentation of ISSS Annual Awards during the Conference. [CFP]. [quick download]  All awardees have been informed of the decision of the ISSS Awards Committee.
