The first COMS conference was organized by Dr. Robert Warrington, Director of the Institute for Micromanufacturing, and was supported by the Engineering Foundation and the National Science Foundation. The conference was by invitation and hosted prominent MEMS researchers, industry leaders interested in applications for MEMS, MEMS foundries, entrepreneurs and startups, and government leaders. The conference was one of a few that focused on commercialization of technology and probably the first to focus on commercialization of MEMS.
