Foresight Institute, the leading nanotechnology education and
public policy think tank, is sponsoring the 1st
Conference on Advanced Nanotechnology: Research,
Applications, and Policy, October 22-24, 2004 at the
Crystal City Marriott Hotel, Washington DC area. This
conference focuses on molecular nanotechnology and
what it will mean for the environment, water
purification, clean energy, medicine, national
security, space exploration, international
competitiveness, zero-waste manufacturing and overall
societal impacts and other areas.
Each day of the 1st Conference on Advanced Nanotechnology is dedicated to in-depth exploration and discussion of a critical area driving molecular manufacturing: research status, disruptive applications, and policy issues. Saturday and Sunday, October 23rd and 24th, are designed to make nanotechnology understandable and accessible to public policy professionals, public interest representatives, professional/trade association representatives, investors, the media, students, and the general public.
"We have assembled over 30 nanotechnology experts, researchers, and leaders who will present their work on important applications and public policy issues surrounding advanced nanotechnology," said Christine Peterson, Founder and Vice President of Foresight Institute. "This is the first conference dedicated to addressing the impact and key ideas of advanced nanotechnology."
Day One, chaired by William A. Goddard III (Caltech) and. Ralph Merkle (Georgia Tech) will focus on technical research on advanced nanotechnology. Researchers and technologists are encouraged to attend.
Day Two, chaired by Scott Mize (Foresight Institute) and Brad Templeton (Electronic Frontier Foundation) will discuss the applications and uses for advanced nanotechnology. This day is tailored for policy professionals, investors, public interest representatives, professional/trade association representatives, researchers, technologists, and the general public.
Day Three: 1st Forum on Advanced Nanotechnology Policy, chaired by. Howard Lovy (NanoBot) and Scott Mize (Foresight Institute) will focus on what policies need to be in place for advanced nanotechnology to flourish. Policy professionals, public interest representatives, professional/trade association representatives, and the general public are encouraged to attend.
