Just back from the INC1 conference on nanotechnology and the future of computer chips. Lots of great talks for those tracking this field. Favorites today: Paolo Gargini of Intel on roadmaps and Michiharu Nakamura of Hitachi on work in Japan. Mike Roco’s talk included 4th generation nanotech featuring robotics and guided assembly. Strong international participation from Asia and Europe. Posters included Berkeley’s Molecular Foundry, now constructing a new building which is both under budget and ahead of schedule. There is still time to attend tomorrow, or if you can’t, try to obtain the CD with the presentations. Next year’s meeting will be in DC, then the year after that, in Europe or Japan. A very successful first conference in this series.
