Home > Press > Report of the Madison Area Citizen Conference on Technology
Sponsored by the Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center at the University of Wisconsin and the UW Integrated Liberal Studies Program.
The demographically diverse group of citizens conferred with experts, read background documents and met on three Sundays in April to discuss the future of nanotechnology.
According to co-organizer Daniel Kleinman, professor in UW-Madison's Department of Rural Sociology, "This citizen panel is at the cutting edge in contemplating this new technology, considering the opportunities it offers and the concerns it raises well before nanotechnology has a transformative impact on the U.S. and world economies."
