UAlbany NanoCollege to Host Trio of Prestigious Global Nanotechnology Conferences

Albany, NY | Posted on March 12th, 2009

The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering ("CNSE") of the University at Albany announced today that it will host three prestigious global nanotechnology conferences this year that will bring hundreds of leading faculty, scientists and researchers from around the world to CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex.The 2009 International Conference on Frontiers of Characterization and Metrology for Nanoelectronics, to be held May 11 through 15, is regarded as the world's premier forum on metrology and characterization. Presented by the National Institute of Standards and Technology ("NIST"), the conference focuses on frontiers and innovations in characterization and metrology of nanoelectronics, addressing major issues and providing critical reviews of important techniques needed to keep pace amid the growing integration of nanoscale technologies.

The acceleration of nanoscale solutions for energy applications will be the focus of an event to be held April 26 through 28. Nanoscale Measurement Challenges for Energy Applications Global Workshop, presented jointly by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers ("ASME"), the National Renewable Energy Laboratory ("NREL"), NIST and CNSE will explore the challenges involving measurement of properties at the nanoscale for use in alternative energy technologies, low-cost energy production and increased energy efficiency.

And, CNSE will partner with the National Center for Learning and Teaching ("NCLT") in Nanotechnology at Northwestern University to host the Symposium on Advances in Higher Education in Nanoscale Science and Engineering from August 5 through 8. The conference will convene experts in higher education to assess the current state of nanoscale science and engineering education and chart a course for the future.

Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, Senior Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of CNSE, said, "The UAlbany NanoCollege is delighted to have been selected as the venue for these prestigious nanotechnology conferences, and to have the opportunity to work in collaboration with our esteemed partners, including the National Institute for Standards and Technology, American Society of Mechanical Engineers, National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Northwestern University. Through these conferences, hundreds of the world's leading faculty, scientists and researchers will see firsthand why New York State, through the foresight, leadership and investment of Governor Paterson and Assembly Speaker Silver, is recognized as the global leader in nanotechnology education, innovation and economic outreach."

About UAlbany CNSE
The UAlbany CNSE is the first college in the world dedicated to research, development, education, and deployment in the emerging disciplines of nanoscience, nanoengineering, nanobioscience, and nanoeconomics. In May 2007, it was ranked as the world's number one college for nanotechnology and microtechnology in the Annual College Ranking by Small Times magazine. CNSE's Albany NanoTech complex is the most advanced research enterprise of its kind at any university in the world: a $4.5 billion, 450,000-square-foot complex that attracts corporate partners from around the world and offers students a one-of-a-kind academic experience. The UAlbany NanoCollege houses the only fully-integrated, 300mm wafer, computer chip pilot prototyping and demonstration line within 65,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanrooms. More than 2,000 scientists, researchers, engineers, students, and faculty work on site at CNSE's Albany NanoTech complex, from companies including IBM, AMD, SEMATECH, Toshiba, ASML, Applied Materials, Tokyo Electron, Vistec Lithography and Freescale. An expansion currently underway will increase the size of CNSE's Albany NanoTech complex to over 800,000 square feet, including over 80,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanroom space, to house over 2,500 scientists, researchers, engineers, students, and faculty by mid-2009.
