1st CONFERENCE ON ADVANCED NANOTECHNOLOGY:
RESEARCH, APPLICATIONS, AND POLICY
October 22-24, 2004
Crystal City Marriott Hotel
Washington, DC area
Link

Day One: 1st Symposium on Molecular Machine Systems, chaired by Prof. William A. Goddard III (Caltech) and Prof. Ralph Merkle (Georgia Tech) will focus on state-of-the-art research. Link

Days Two: 1st Forum on Molecular Manufacturing Applications, chaired by Prof. Patrick Parker (Naval Postgraduate School) and Brad Templeton (Electronic Frontier Foundation) will focus on the applications and uses for advanced nanotechnology. Link

Day Three: 1st Forum on Advanced Nanotechnology Policy, chaired by Prof. Glenn Reynolds (U. Tenn.) and Howard Lovy (Smalltimes) will focus on what policies need to be in place for advanced nanotechnology. Link


CONFERENCE BACKGROUND:

The 1st Conference on Advanced Nanotechnology: Research, Applications, and Policy is an important event for those interested in the Feynman goal for nanotechnology, including researchers, technologists, policy advisors, public interest representatives, investors, interested citizens, and those aiming at a career in the field. The Conference will provide a stimulating multi-disciplinary environment enabling broad exploration of this anticipated revolution in how matter is controlled.

Unlike generic "anything under 100 nm" nanotech meetings, the 1st Conference on Advanced Nanotechnology targets the bottom- up goal of atomically precise molecular machine systems, enabling those focusing on this prospect to present their work to interested colleagues, facilitating new collaborations and potentially attracting new sources of funding.
