The Nanotechnology 2011 Conference and Workshops will focus on the synthesis, processing and application of nanoengineered materials with an emphasis on energy generation and storage, biological applications including pharmaceuticals, nanomedicine and nano-enabled devices. Cutting edge research from some of the world’s leading nano scientists/technologists and business trends from industry leaders will be presented in six conference sessions. The program will provide attendees an unmatched look at the state-of-the-art in these emerging technologies and their path to the market place.
This unique meeting will bridge the gap between science, technology and commercialization and attract an international group of participants that represent the research, business, and investment communities. Attached herewith is a detailed copy of the program including presentation bullets, abstracts and speaker profiles. The program can also viewed at http://northeastregional.aiche.org/webfm_send/34.
The conference venue is very close to Times Square and the conference hotels are near the Theatre District. Come and join us and gain knowledge on the Emerging Science and Technologies as well as Market/Business Opportunities in Nanotechnology. At the same time, come with your family and have a great time in New York city.
Don’t miss out of this important nanotechnology conference. Register today at http://northeastregional.aiche.org/content/registration. One could register separately for the workshops or the conference or both.
