The 2015 German-American Frontiers of Engineering Symposium was held April 16-18 at the Steigenberger Hotel in Potsdam, Germany. About 60 outstanding engineers under the age of 45 met for an intensive 2-1/2 day symposium to discuss cutting-edge developments in four areas: Nano-to-Micro Robotics, Synthetic Membranes and their Applications, Particle Accelerators and their Applications, and Protecting User Privacy in the Age Big Data. The event facilitated international and cross-disciplinary research collaboration, promotes the transfer of new techniques and approaches across disparate engineering fields, and encourages the creation of a transatlantic network of world-class engineers.  The program was carried out in cooperation between the US National Academy of Engineering and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.  Prof. Cappelleri conducted an invited poster presentation on the MSRAL’s microrobotics research.
