Prof. Ben Shapiro organized an NSF workshop focusing on the control and system integration issues in MEMS and nano scale systems March 29-30, 2004. A joint appointment in the Department of Aerospace Engineering and the Institute for Systems Research, Shapiro identified this important bridge which must be mastered for transferring advances in MEMS and nano technologies to the marketplace. The complete report of the workshop is available at the Workshop website, as well as a summary presentation he presented at the 2004 American Control Conference.
