The Future of Nanotechnology

Ithaca, NY | Posted on May 30th, 2007

Nanotechnology - the ability to understand and control matter with ultimate precision - is the most powerful and enabling technology humankind has ever developed. Nanotechnology is used to create materials, devices and systems with fundamentally new properties and functions that will change the world as we know it.

The Cornell NanoScale Science and Technology Facility (CNF) has been at the forefront of nanotechnology for 30 years. A facility that serves over 700 users a year, CNF has been instrumental in enabling, developing, and propagating the benefits of nanotechnology.

The Future of Nanotechnology symposium will celebrate CNF's contributions by looking into the shape of things to come. Renowned experts from around the world have been invited to share their vision of (i) the future of nanotechnology, (ii) the emerging field of nanomedicine, and (iii) the social and ethical issues associated with nanotechnology. Plenary lectures will introduce these three topics in the morning, and parallel tracks will explore these topics in detail in the afternoon. A poster session will give an opportunity to attendees to present their work.

Planned Events:

Opening Address
Dr. Edward Wolf, First Director of CNF
Dr. Lawrence Goldberg, National Science Foundation
