Feynman anniversary event to be held at University of South Carolina. h/t Nanowerk
In February 1960, the Caltech magazine Engineering & Science published Feynman’s “Plenty of Room”, and it has been re-published ten times since then. This has become one of the best-known papers in the history of nanotechnology. The fiftieth anniversary of the initial publication of “Plenty of Room” presents us with an opportunity to reflect upon Richard Feynman’s legacy in nanotechnology. The University of South Carolina will convene a symposium to consider the talk, the man, and the field of nanotechnology during the past fifty years. The Symposium takes place at the University of South Carolina on Friday and Saturday, 12 and 13 February 2010. All full program (in PDF format) is available. Registration fee: $25; no charge for USC faculty, staff or students.
Note this USC is South Carolina, not Southern California 🙂
