IEC Launches Nanotechnology Information eXchange at DesignCon 2003

January 8th, 2003

The International Engineering Consortium has announced that this year's DesignCon conference in Santa Clara, Calif., will debut the Nanotechnology Information eXchange, an opportunity for IEC constituents and DesignCon attendees to acquire information about this important new field of research.

NIX will be an informational resource located adjacent to the NanoEngineering TecForum at DesignCon 2003 on Monday, January 27. Attendees at the TecForum will thus be able to supplement the industry knowledge acquired in the live presentations with print materials from some of the leading organizations and experts in the nanotechnology field.

NIX will then move to the DesignCon 2003 exhibition floor on Tuesday, January 28, and Wednesday, January 29.

Industry, academic and government organizations participating in the DesignCon 2003 NIX program include:

  • Advanced Technology Program (ATP-NIST)
  • Albany NanoTech
  • Argonne National Laboratory
  • Arryx
  • AtomWorks
  • California NanoSystems Institute - UCLA
  • Center for Nanomaterials Research (Dartmouth University)
  • CMP Cientifica
  • Cornell University
  • Drexel University
  • Drexel University & The University of Pennsylvania
