Bangalore | Posted on December 2nd, 2011

Bangalore Nano 2011 will be three full days of presentations and powerful discussions as well as interactive networking programmes and a meeting place for the Nanotech community. The event brings global Scientists, Industry, Academia & Government bodies together every year. For the first time ever, the event will begin with Pre Conference Tutorials on 7th December 2011 offering an in-depth knowledge to Post Graduates & Young Researchers entering into the field of Nanotechnology.

This year the international conference will be attended by over 450 delegates and the tradeshow will feature 25 exhibitors from across the globe. Cumulatively 140 organizations from 12 countries like Russia, Germany, USA, Japan, Switzerland, Canada, Poland have confirmed participation. Leading Sponsors include Reliance Industries; Indian Oil Corporation, Lab India Instruments and NanoInk Inc and exhibitors include John F. Welch Technology Centre, Labindia Instruments Pvt. Ltd, Global Nanotech, Hind High Vacuum Company Private Limited, I2N Technologies, Apsara Innovations, RUSNANO, Russia; NanoWorld Group, Switzerland; Applied Nanotech, USA.

The focus areas of Bangalore Nano 2011 are Nano Medicine and Biotechnology; Advanced Nano Materials; Nano in Energy and Environment; Nano Electronics and Microsystems. These topics will be addressed by over 60 internationally acclaimed speakers such as Dr. E.W. Meijer, Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands; Dr. Timothy Fisher, USA; Dr. Anthony K. Cheetham, University of Cambridge, UK; Dr. Stuart S.P. Parkin Director, IBM Almaden Research Center, USA; Dr. Robert Stokes, Nanoink Inc., USA; Dr. Jun'ichi Sone, Vice President, National

Institute for Material Science, Japan; Prof. Gordon Wallace, University of Wollongong, Australia; Dr. Hannes Schweiger, Materials Design, USA; Mr. Philippe KEMPE, CSM Instruments SA, Switzerland; Dr. Haiwon LEE, Director, Institute of Nano Science and Technology, Hanyang University, Korea

With an objective of bridging Students with Scientists, a special programme "Nano for the Young" is planned for the students by Prof. C.N.R. Rao along with Prof. Ajay K. Sood (IISc), Prof. Umesh Waghmare, (JNCASR, Bangalore) and Prof. Krishna N. Ganesh, (IISER, Pune), during "Nano for the Young". The Panel of experts would share with students the key aspects of Nanotechnology and the excitement that lies in Nano Research.

Bangalore Nano National Award 2011 will be conferred upon Dr. G Sundararajan, Director, International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy and New Materials (ARCI), Hyderabad. The previous recipients of the award were Prof. C.N.R. Rao in 2007, Prof. Dipankar Chakravorty in 2008 and Prof. Ajay K Sood in 2010.

Additionally, a new Award has been instituted from this year ¨India Nanotech Innovation Award¨. The ¨India Nanotech Innovation Award¨ will be presented to an organization / individual in recognition of innovations in nanotechnology that would revolutionize the sector.

The National Lecture Series will feature this year's Bangalore Nano 2011 National Award recipient Dr. G. Sundararajan - Director, International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy & New Materials (ARCI) and Dr. Srikumar Banerjee - Chairman, Atomic Energy Commission and Secretary to Government, Dept. of Atomic Energy, Govt. of India.

This year's event will also feature Research Industry Collaboration Hub (RICH) wherein 7 Startup Companies will be pitching for investments or research collaborations from the VC Community and Research Institutions. RICH will also facilitate podium presentations and one-to-one meetings for emerging entrepreneurs in Nanotechnology.

Bangalore Nano 2011 will offer a unique opportunity for 115 Young Scientists and Researchers to present their innovations in the "Poster Session" from 160 entries, from the best of Institutions like IISc, JNCASR, IITs, NCBS and international Universities.
