CIRCA ’07 draws leading global nanotechnology executives and companies to Albany

Albany, NY | Posted on May 24th, 2007

Further strengthening the emergence of Albany and New York State as global leaders in nanotechnology research, development and economic attraction, a world-class lineup of speakers featuring leading executives and companies highlighted the first-ever Convergence of International Research and Commercialization in Albany, or CIRCA '07, held May 21-23 at the Gideon Putnam Hotel in Saratoga Springs, NY and at CNSE's Albany NanoTech complex in Albany, NY.

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 world's number one college for nanotechnology, partnered to present the conference, which 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, transportation and defense, among others.

More than 200 attendees at CIRCA '07 were given a firsthand look at the convergence of nanotechnology with electronics, photonics, bioelectronics, microsystems and wireless technologies - as well as the unique opportunities for partnership that it provides - to unlock the enormous market potential that exists in such diverse sectors as energy, biohealth, transportation, security and telecommunications.

Justin Wright, Executive Director, AeA New York Council, said, "CIRCA '07 presented 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 has demonstrated."

Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer of CNSE, said, "The UAlbany NanoCollege is delighted to have partnered with AeA, the leading global technology trade organization, in presenting this timely and important event which once again showcases Albany and New York State as one of the world's premier locations for nanotechnology research, development and commercialization. Through this partnership, CIRCA '07 has provided a unique opportunity to formulate and refine strategies for shared development of cross-sector, university-driven technology platforms and to identify private-public business teaming opportunities around nanoscale manufacturing solutions that are common to the host of nanotechnology-enabled industries of the 21st century."

The distinguished list of speakers at CIRCA '07 included: Bill Kroll, President and CEO, Matheson Tri-Gas and Conference Chair; Kevin Knox, Vice President, Worldwide Commercial Business, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD); Dr. Harry J. Levinson, Manager of Strategic Lithography Technology and Fellow, AMD; Dr. Bruce E. White, Jr., Manager of Advanced CMOS, Austin Silicon Technology Solutions, Freescale Semiconductor; Timothy Maloney, Director, Power Management & Discrete Semiconductor Products, Infineon Technologies, Inc.; Larry Sumney, President and CEO, Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC); Dr. Timothy L. Weber, R&D Director of Advanced Materials and Processes Lab, Hewlett Packard; Dr. Bernard Meyerson, IBM Fellow, Vice President, Strategic Alliances and Chief Technology Officer, IBM Systems and Technology Group; Dr. Satyen Mukherjee, Chief Scientist and Department Head, Microelectronics Devices, Circuits and Systems, Philips Research; Don Dybas, Principal Technologist, Oracle Corp.; and, Dr. Wendy Arienzo, Vice President and General Manager, NXP, among many others.
