The ONAMI Safer Nanomaterials and Nanomanufacturing Initiative's (SNNI) 6th annual Greener Nano Conference (GN11) - Advancing Applications and Reducing Risk - will be hosted by Hewlett-Packard Company at its Cupertino, CA site. GN11 will explore challenges and opportunities facing nanotechnology in the next decade. We will address reproducibility in nanomaterials syntheses, and discuss methods in understanding nanomaterial properties and the impacts of nanomaterials in biological systems.
We will kick off each session with overview/keynote talks followed by a session of "rapid fire" talks that delve into the technical aspects of the subjects.
Plenary and Session Keynote speakers include:
Dr. Greg Lowry, Deputy Director for CEINT and Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University
Dr. David W. Grainger, George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Presidential Endowed Chair and deparmental chair in Pharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Professor of Bioengineering, University of Utah.
Dr. Justin Teeguarden, Scientist, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Dr. Seth Coe-Sullivan, co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, QD Vision
Dr. Jeff Morris, National Program Director, Nanotechnology Research Program, EPA
Dr. David Warheit, DuPont Haskell Laboratory for Health and Environmental Sciences
Ms. Sheila Davis, Executive Director, Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition
On Monday evening we will hold a poster reception (including a networking dinner), with emphasis on the following topics:
• Greener nanomaterial design and synthesis
• Advances in nanomaterial characterization
• Greener nanomaterial production and manufacturing
• Impacts and distribution in living systems and the environment
• Commercialization and policy to advance nanotechnology
We will wrap up the conference with a panel session focused on advancing greener industrial applications of nanotechnology. This panel session will consist of a series of presentations and in-depth discussions.
A pre-conference workshop, Greener Nano 101, will be held on Sunday, May 1st, followed by an opening dinner reception. This workshop is geared toward those new to the field and will focus on what policy-makers and regulators need to know about nanotechnology.

This year, GN11 will be held in conjunction with the Green Chemistry and Commerce Council (GC3) Innovators Roundtable May 4-5.
ONAMI is Oregon’s first “signature research center” (SRC)—an academic, business and government collaboration to grow research volume and commercialization in the broad area of nano- and micro-scale science and engineering. First established in 2003 as a pilot for the SRC concept developed by the Oregon Council for Knowledge and Economic Development, ONAMI is now an initiative of the Oregon Innovation Council and operates under an administrative services contract with the Oregon Business Development Department.
