New York, NY | Posted on November 19th, 2008

This year's conference theme will be "Now What?" - Leaders in corporate America, top startups, active investors and government leaders will convene to explore strategies and priorities in a world which is much different since we last convened.

The "Now What?" topics for our roundtable will include:

- There will be a new administration in Washington - now what?

- The stock market has plummeted and investors are more risk averse than ever - now what?

- Major investment banks, hedge funds and private equity firms have disappeared or are going through major changes - now what?

- Advances in nanotechnology have driven performance in cleantech, green business, life science, electronics and more - now what?

Monday December 8 will be focused on panels and roundtables, and Tuesday, December 9 will include more content and also will feature a group traveling to the Brookhaven Labs on Long Island to tour their Center. The tour will include a review of Functional Nanomaterials and the Realistic Heavy Ion Collider.

Confirmed keynote addresses include presentations by:

"Now in our fourth year, our Livingston Nanotechnology Conference has clearly met a market need by offering a nanotechnology event designed for investment professionals that was created by investment professionals," said Scott Livingston, Managing Director, Axiom Capital Management, Inc. "At our largest and most comprehensive conference to date, our attendees will meet and interact with decision makers from America's largest companies, CEOs of leading public growth companies, fast moving startups, key decision makers from top public and private investment institutions, and other influential members of the nanotechnology community. The world has changed quite a bit since we last convened, and with a new administration in Washington, a renewed need for clean and green energy self sufficiency, Wall Street in disarray and continued rapid advances in discovery and development of nanotechnologies, we feel that this event is quite well timed"
