1st Conference on Advanced Nanotechnology: Research, Applications, and Policy, October 21-24, 2004, Crystal City Marriott Hotel, Washington, DC area. Includes, as Day One: 1st Symposium on Molecular Machine Systems
The 1st Conference on Advanced Nanotechnology: Research, Applications, and Policy is an important event for those interested in the Feynman goal for nanotechnology, including researchers, technologists, policy advisors, public interest representatives, investors, interested citizens, and those aiming at a career in the field. The Conference will provide a stimulating multi-disciplinary environment enabling broad exploration of this anticipated revolution in how matter is controlled.
Unlike generic "anything under 100 nm" nanotech meetings, the 1st Conference on Advanced Nanotechnology targets the bottom-up goal of atomically precise molecular machine systems, enabling those focusing on this prospect to present their work to interested colleagues, facilitating new collaborations and potentially attracting new sources of funding.
Day One of the meeting will focus on state-of-the-art research: the 1st Symposium on Molecular Machine Systems, chaired by Prof. William A. Goddard III (Caltech) and Prof. Ralph Merkle (Georgia Tech). Days Two and Three focus on applications and public policy.
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Foresight Institute is calling for papers that discuss technical, social implication, and public policy work to be presented at the 1st Conference on Advanced Nanotechnology: Research, Applications, and Policy. Abstracts will be accepted on a wide variety of topics — from technological readiness, to anticipated applications, to public policy issues related to the Feynman goal of molecular machine systems.
Research topics include but are not limited to: Molecular Physics plus Systems Engineering, Macromolecular design and synthesis, Scanning probe manipulation systems, Systems design, Modeling of molecular mechanical systems and mechanosynthetic operations, Systems control, Technical Readiness
Applications and Social Implications topics include but are not limited to: Medicine, Environment, National Security, Space Transportation, Economic Impact, Intellectual Property, Surveillance & Privacy, Social Outcomes.
Public Policy topics include but are not limited to: Myths in Nanotechnology, Problems with Current U.S. Policy in Molecular Nanotechnology, Lagging in Molecular Manufacturing: Risks to the U.S., Balancing the National Nanotechnology Initiative: Adding Molecular Manufacturing to the U.S. Research Portfolio
