13th Foresight Conference focuses on vision, applications, policy and research
Foresight Nanotech Institute, the original
organization in the nanotechnology field, announces the program and
conference chairs for the Advancing Beneficial Nanotechnology: Focusing on
the Cutting Edge conference, to be held October 22-27, 2005 at the
San Francisco Airport Marriott.
"Foresight Nanotech Institute has been the pioneer in producing nanotechnology events for over a decade," said Christine Peterson, founder and vice president of public policy at Foresight Nanotech Institute. "Our conferences have evolved along with the advancements in nanotechnology. This year's meeting offers a sweeping view of nanotechnology from the Vision, to current Applications & Policies, to Research."
Advancing Beneficial Nanotechnology: Focusing on the Cutting Edge is organized into three stand-alone, complimentary sessions - Vision, Applications & Policy, and Research. Chaired by recognized leaders in nanotechnology and organized around the Foresight Nanotechnology Challenges, each conference segment is designed to give both veterans and newcomers the opportunity to explore how nanotechnology can address important challenges facing humanity.
The Foresight Nanotechnology Challenges are:
The Vision Weekend, chaired by Dr. Carl F. Kohrt, (Battelle) and Scott Mize
(Foresight Nanotech Institute), provides a rare opportunity to hear world-class
speakers discuss the future of nanotechnology candidly and off-the-record.
Scheduled for October 22-23, 2005, the Vision Weekend is exclusive to
Foresight's Participating Members and is attended by a mixture of executives,
engineers, research, investors, writers, artists and futurists.
The Applications & Policy sessions, chaired by Charles Harris (Harris & Harris Group) and James Von Ehr, (Zyvex Corporation) for Applications, and Richard Smith (Nanotechnology Policy Foundation) and Christine Peterson (Foresight Nanotech Institute) for Policy, focuses on the Foresight Nanotechnology Challenges. Scheduled for October 24-25, 2005, the Applications & Policy sessions include speakers on nanotech investment today, current international policy, intellectual property in nanotech, and expert panels on each of the Foresight Nanotechnology Challenges.
The Research session, chaired by William Goddard III (California Institute of Technology), Charles Lieber (Harvard University) and Hiroshi Yokayama, (AIST, Japan) is a forum for researchers from all disciplines to present and discuss their recent nanoscale work and results. Scheduled for October 26 and half-day October 27, 2005, the Research sessions include a technical overview tutorial and presentations on nanoscale physics, electronics, tools, sensors, devices, nanotubes, molecular machines, and approaches to developing self- assembling DNA structures.
"Foresight Nanotech Institute's conferences have always featured highly knowledgeable, world-class speakers. This year's speaker line-up is extraordinary and gets better every week," said Scott Mize, President of Foresight Nanotech Institute. "We encourage nanotech novices, nanotech veterans who want to keep abreast of the cutting edge of nanotechnology, individuals in fields related to the Foresight Nanotechnology Challenges, and anyone who wants to get an understanding of what this powerful and promising technology can do for our society, to participate."
Attendees can customize this "a la carte" conference experience by choosing the days and sessions that provide the kind of nanotechnology information and contacts they are seeking. Participants choosing to attend all six days will receive a comprehensive overview of the most important developments in this exciting field.
Current sponsors of the Advancing Beneficial Nanotechnology Conference are: Battelle, Dorsey & Whitney LLP, The Analytiq Group, Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Sun Microsystems, NaturalNano, Nanorex, Inc., Foley & Lardner LLP, Howard Rice Nemerovski Canady Falk & Rabkin, and nanoTITAN Incorporated.
