AEA, UAlbany NanoCollege to partner on CIRCA '07

Albany, NY | Posted on March 6th, 2007

AeA, the nation's largest high-tech trade association, and the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering ("CNSE") of the University at Albany, ranked by Small Times magazine as the nation's number one college for nanotechnology, will partner to hold a first-ever conference focused on the development of common nanotechnology-enabled platforms that will drive innovation and spur commercial opportunities in a broad array of industries, including nanoelectronics, health care, energy, defense and aerospace, among others.

The Convergence of International Research and Commercialization in Albany, or CIRCA '07, will be held May 21-23 at the Gideon Putnam Hotel in Saratoga Springs, NY and at CNSE's Albany NanoTech complex in Albany, NY.

The purpose of CIRCA '07 is to leverage the state-of-the-art nanofabrication expertise of leading device, equipment and material suppliers - and the subsequent convergence of nanotechnology with electronics, photonics, bioelectronics, microsystems and wireless technologies - to unlock the enormous market opportunities that exist in such diverse sectors as energy, biohealth, security and telecommunications.

Justin Wright, Executive Director, AeA New York Council, said, "CIRCA '07 is a tremendous opportunity for our 2,500 member companies representing all segments of the high-tech industry. AeA recognizes that manufacturability and commercialization of nanotechnology are among the greatest challenges facing widespread implementation and commercial viability. AeA's strategic relationship with CNSE is providing unique capabilities and solutions to address these challenges, as CIRCA '07 will demonstrate."

Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer of CNSE, said, "The UAlbany NanoCollege is delighted to partner with AeA, the leading global technology trade organization, in this important event. Through this partnership, CIRCA '07 will formulate and refine strategies for shared development of cross-sector, university-driven technology platforms and identify private-public business teaming opportunities around nanoscale manufacturing solutions common to the host of nanotechnology-enabled industries of the 21st century. These industries include aeronautics, telecommunications, homeland defense, health, and energy."

Among the speakers confirmed for CIRCA '07 are Bernie Meyerson, IBM Fellow and vice president and chief technologist for IBM Systems and Technology; Wendy Arienzo, vice president and general manager of NXP; Michael O'Halloran, director of technology for CH2MHill; Robert Maire, senior analyst at Needham & Company; and Daniel Webster Jr., general manager of ANALOGIC.
