Dear Prospective Supporter of NMC 2013,

As the general chair of the 10th International Workshop on Nanomechanical Sensing (NMC 2013), I invite you to participate as a member of the Industrial Support Group for the workshop. The workshop will be held 1-3 May 2013 at Stanford University in conjunction with the NSF Center for Probing the Nanoscale. We anticipate over 200 academic and industrial research scientists from Stanford and around the world will attend and we invite you to join us.

The Workshop on Nanomechanical Sensing meeting is focused on interdisciplinary research on and with nanoscale sensors. NMC started in 2004 as the "nano mechanical cantilever" meeting but has grown along with innovations in nanomechanics and probing at the nanoscale. The mission has expanded to all modes of nanomechanical sensing to include applications such as chemical sensing, biosensing, scanning probes, optomechanics, nanomechanics, resonant sensing, and associated modeling and experiments, etc. The NMC workshops are non-profit academic meetings which are self-supporting; the meetings rely on contributions and attendee tuition to offset all expenses. The goal of the Industrial Support Group is to assist in keeping the tuition rate as low as possible and enhance the potential number of participants able to attend, especially students. NMC2013 will provide a single session technical program with the latest research on nanosensing including renowned invited speakers, contributed oral and poster presentations, and excellent networking opportunities.

Your organization can participate as a member of the Industrial Support Group at a variety of levels and associated benefits, all sponsor levels include exhibit space (to remain unmanned during technical sessions).
  • Gold sponsor @ $5000 includes 2 registrations, logo on website and conference materials, handout in conference materials, logo on conference USB key. Option to present a technical poster. Option to provide sponsor's promotional giveaway item.
  • Silver sponsor @ $3500 includes 2 registrations, logo on website and conference materials, handout in conference materials and technical poster
  • Bronze sponsor @ $2500 includes 1 registration, logo on website and conference materials, handout in conference materials
  • Exhibitor @ $1500 includes 1 registration and tabletop display.
For further information, please contact: info@nmc2013.org Members of the Industrial Support Group are also asked to promote NMC 2013 by spreading the word within your organization. This may include, for example, informing groups working on nanosensing related projects about the workshop; posting information about abstract submission and registration deadlines; providing feedback to the organizers about technical and administrative arrangements. This is a great opportunity for your company to be involved with NMC 2013 and the Center for Probing the Nanoscale at Stanford, as well as a great opportunity to show the rest of world what your company is doing in the field. We are looking forward to another successful Conference in 2013 and hope that your company will participate as an Industrial Support Group Member.

We look forward to seeing you at NMC 2013 on the Stanford campus.
