SAMPE '07 Attracted More Visitors and Exhibitors

Notable keynote presentations were given Tuesday through Thursday, beginning with Douglas Comstock, Director of the NASA's Innovative Partnerships Program Office. He outlined NASA's goals for the next 10 years. Wednesday's keynote presentation was given by Dr. Starnes Walker, Department of Homeland Security Director of Research, who discussed the role of materials and processes in the scope of Homeland Security and government programs available to fund research. On Thursday, Congressman Donald A. Manzullo of the 16th Congressional District of Illinois, gave a fervent talk on export control and ITAR regulations. He shared his views, the steps he has taken to address relevant concerns in those areas. He advised attendees about the best way to get the attention, cooperation and support of their local congressional representatives. Throughout the week, attendees had the opportunity to attend 280 technical presentations, 12 tutorials, a nanomaterials forum and 5 technical panels. "The response to the conference programs has been especially rewarding," Jim Harris, Committee General Co-Chair said. "This year's topics represent industries experiencing the most change. We are happy to offer the most up-to-date programming and especially appreciate the contributions from researchers and engineers who helped make this conference a success."
