A Conference Sponsored by NSTS at the University of South Carolina 2-6 March 2005
Developments in nanotechnology provide the basis for a convergence of the physical and life sciences, including biomedicine, information technology, and cognitive science. Emerging technologies include highly functional molecular systems, alternative manufacturing processes, molecular computing, brain/machine interfaces, tissue engineering, and recombinant genetic alterations of viral, plant, and animal systems. Virtually all areas of human life may be transformed, and these transformations will likely involve both great benefit and great risk. In this conference we explore the ethical and legal issues raised by nanotechnology and the larger convergence of technologies, including reflections on:
Confirmed speakers include:
We expect an international audience, and invite papers and posters from
speakers in all areas of research related to the conference topic.
Please submit an abstract of 200-500 words. Deadline is 1 December 2004;
we would appreciate earlier emails from those interested in submitting
abstracts so we can plan the size of the conference. Send inquiries and
abstracts by email attachment in Word, Rich Text Format, or pdf to:
