Foresight Institute Conference Tackles Nanotechnology Applications and Public Policy

Environment, Water Purification, Clean Energy, Medicine, Security, Space Exploration, Competitiveness, Zero-Waste Manufacturing, and Societal Impacts to be discussed

Palo Alto, CA., October 7, 2004

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.
