Plenary Presentations
Internationally recognized plenary speakers will share their visions for how transducers can address global challenges. In addition to providing a pre-taped talk, speakers will engage in live panel discussions. We look forward to announcing the panel participants in early May!

Invited Presentations
An accomplished group of leaders from our field will offer invited talks throughout the conference. In addition to 20-minute pre-taped talks, session moderators will support 10-minute question and answer sessions during the live portion of the schedule.

Oral Presentations
Submitted papers that are accepted for oral presentations will create a 10-minute pre-taped talk, and will participate in a live, moderated, 5-minute question and answer session during the synchronous portion of the schedule.

Poster Presentations
Submitted papers that are accepted for posters will create a virtual poster and participate in a live 2-hour virtual poster session during the synchronous portion of the schedule.

A new manuscript is not required, as the paper citation will be provided on the conference website..

Industry Sessions
Three real-time events are included in the synchronous schedule, which will be dedicated to serving the specific interests of Transducers industry participants and will include a range of talks and real-time discussions. The detailed plans will be announced in April.

Student Events
Several student events will be included during the course of the conference. Detailed plans will be announced in April.

Short Courses (Pre-Conference)
Two short courses are being offered during the weekend before the core conference schedule. These include "Key Technologies Available in Nanofabrication Centers" and "Towards System-level Modeling and High-fidelity Simulations of MEMS: Challenges, State-of-the-Art, Perspectives". Both courses will include real-time synchronous presentations that are repeated across multiple time zones.
