Abstract:
The NanoBusiness Alliance, the world's leading nanotechnology trade association, today announced details of its expanded conference program for the 8th annual NanoBusiness 2009 conference and exhibition (www.nanobusiness2009.com), which will held at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL, from September 8 - 10.

Expanded Conference Program Announced for 8th Annual NanoBusiness 2009, Nanotechnology's Foremost Business Conference

Chicago, IL | Posted on August 25th, 2009

With presentations by more than 140 speakers over three days, NanoBusiness 2009 will feature conference tracks on a wide range of topics including Health/Medical, Energy, Electronics, Water, Defense, Construction, Tools/Metrology, and Advanced Materials.

"The relocation of our NanoBusiness Conference to Chicago was designed to address nanotechnology advancements in a variety of important new markets," observed Sean Murdock, Executive Director, NanoBusiness Alliance, "and we're pleased to present a conference program that speaks to the Chicago-area's growing community of nanotechnology innovators." "As advancements in nanotechnology are touching nearly every major industry, we determined the need to broaden the focus of our conference program to properly address these important developments," said Vincent Caprio, Executive Director, NY NanoBusiness Alliance and Event Director. "It's with that goal in mind that we are presenting our largest and most comprehensive conference program to date."

The complete conference program can be viewed online at nanobusiness2009.com/index.php/program, and highlights include: Luncheon Keynote, Wednesday, September 9th - Dr. Thomas Kalil, Deputy Director for Policy for the White House, Office of Science and Technology Policy and Senior Advisor for Science, Technology and Innovation for the National Economic Council Future Power Transmission Technologies - Leonard Poveromo, Director Technology Development, Northrop Grumman (News - Alert) The Economy's effect on Nanotech - Jurron Bradley Ph.D. - Senior Analyst, Lux Research Jump the Curve: 50 Essential Strategies to Help Companies Deal with Emerging Technologies - Jack Uldrich - Author and Futurist New Pipeline in Cancer Diagnostics - Piotr Grodzinski, Ph.D., Director of NCI Alliance for Nanotechnology in Cancer Technology and Economics of Nanomanufacturing in Semiconductor Markets - Dr. Hans Stork - Group Vice President & Chief Technology Officer, SSG, Applied Materials (News - Alert) Nano-convergence.

Now in its eighth year, NanoBusiness 2009 has moved from New York to Chicago with a focus on revitalizing the economy through nanotechnology innovation. Because Illinois has a large manufacturing base, world class nanoscience research, and a vibrant and growing nanotechnology community, the event is expected to attract a larger base of attendees from "traditional" companies, with an eye towards the acceleration, deployment and commercialization of nanotech innovations.
