Subject: first european workshop on innovative mass storage
  technologies "IMST'2001"

MINATEC    GRENOBLE    April 3 and 4th 

First European Workshop on 

"Solutions for the Future"

Scope of the conference: 

The first European Workshop on Innovative Mass Storage Technologies 
"IMST 2001" will be held in Grenoble on April 3 and 4th . "IMST 2001" is 
organised during the MINATEC week on micro and nano-technologies (April 2 to 
6th). "IMST 2001" aims to make connections between research lab work and 
industrial developments in the area of new storage techniques. "IMST 2001" 
will give an overview of the activities of European industry in this very 
important field and will compare the position in Europe to that in the US 
and Japan. "IMST 2001" will bring together leading experts from both 
academic and industrial laboratories , thereby providing an outstanding 
opportunity for participants to meet their colleagues, to discuss new 
developments and to plan new collaborations. The introductory session will 
be centred on an industrial overview by the major European players, followed 
by a presentation of new developments by overseas (US and Japanese) 
speakers. The prominent topics of "IMST 2001" will be ultra-high density 
optical recording (e.g. short wavelength, superesolution, near field), 
scanning probe based storage and hard disk future technologies. Storage 
technologies have numerous links with micro and nanotechnologies. So, the 
participants will enjoy the additional opportunity to attend the sessions of 
the MINATEC conference during the same week.
