Three-day program will explore nano products in automotive, aerospace and consumer products industries
New products and applications based on nanotechnology will be the focus of the Nano-App Summit to be held at the Wyndham Hotel at Playhouse Square in downtown Cleveland during NANO Week, October 17-19.
The Nano-App Summit is being jointly hosted by ASM International, the society for materials engineers and scientists, and by the Nano-Network, the Ohio-based nanotechnology educational, networking and advocacy group.
Each day of the three-day summit will focus on a different industry --automotive, aerospace, and consumer products. Leading researchers and product development experts from each industry will participate in the summit.
Speakers scheduled to present at the summit include:
Mike Kenney, director of business development for ASM, said the summit will focus attention on "real world" applications of nanotechnology that are being deployed in the marketplace now or in the near future.
"We want suppliers, marketers and manufacturers to leave the conference with an appreciation of how nanotechnology is influencing their markets today and how that will evolve over the next few years," Kenney said.
The conference will also feature the University Research Showcase, which will highlight the latest research emerging from leading nanotech research universities. Among the universities scheduled to participate are Case Western Reserve University, Cornell University, The Ohio State University, Purdue University, and University of Pittsburgh.
"The research on display will be the most promising for commercial applications," said Mark Brandt, co-founder of the Nano-Network, an industry-led effort to improve and expand nanotechnology research and commercialization activities and capacities in Northeast Ohio. "Executives attending the conference will get a great idea of the opportunities awaiting them in the labs."
Business executives unfamiliar with the promise and potential of nanotechnology will be able to attend a NanoTech 101 class taught by leading nano researchers. The course will be offered on Oct. 17 and 18.
"Nanotechnology is behind many of the new products we enjoy -- from scratch resistant glasses to stain-free pants -- but it's also driving innovation in the automotive and aerospace sectors," said Chris Mather, executive director of Nano-Network.
The Nano-App Summit is designed for:
