The Microsystems Annual Research Conference (MARC) is a long-running event celebrating the scientific achievements of students and staff pursuing research at the frontiers of micro/nanotechnology at MIT. Tracing its roots to the semesterly VLSI Research Reviews of the mid-80s, over the years, MARC has evolved into a student-run conference that hosts over 200 attendees. Co-hosted by MTL and MIT.nano, MARC brings together students, postdocs, faculty, and industry partners.

Due to the evolving COVID situation evolving globally, once again, MARC will be held virtually on January 25–26, 2022. Keynotes, talks, and panel events will be accessible through the conference platform.
