About the conference

The Sixteenth International Conference on Miniaturized Systems for Chemistry and Life Sciences (µTAS 2012) will be held at the Okinawa Convention Center in Okinawa, Japan from October 28 to November 1, 2012.

µTAS 2012 continues a series of Conferences that are the premier forum for reporting and exchanging research results in microfluidics, microfabrication, nanotechnology, integration, materials and surfaces, analysis and synthesis, and detection technologies for life sciences and chemistry. The Conference offers plenary talks as well as contributed oral presentations and posters selected from submitted abstracts.

Following Tokyo in 2006, Paris in 2007, San Diego in 2008, Jeju in 2009, Groningen in 2010 and Seattle in 2011, we anticipate over 1,000 worldwide scientists and professionals engaged in research on and the use of integrated microsystems and nanotechnology for chemistry and life sciences to attend the conference in Okinawa.
