Rice workshop to examine environmental impacts of nanotech

If you will be in the Houston, Texas area on Monday, 10 December 2001, consider attending a workshop on "Nanotechnology and Environment: An Examination of the Potential Benefits and Perils of an Emerging Technology" that will be presented by the Rice University Energy and Environmental Systems Institute (EESI), which is co-sponsoring the workshop with the Office for Science and Technology of the French Embassy USA. Rice is hosting the workshop in affiliation with its new Center for Biological and Environmental Nanotechnology (CBEN), one of six major Nanoscale Science and Engineering Centers recently announced by the National Science Foundation and the first to focus on applications of nanoscience to biology and the environment. The workshop will also include a second day that will be "a closed-door session in which scientists will confer on priorities for research in the field, resulting in a research priorities briefing document."
The first day of the workshop is free and open to the public. It will be held from 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. in Anne and Charles Duncan Hall, McMurtry Auditorium, 6100 Main Street. A reception and poster session will be held from 5 to 6 p.m. Preregistration is not required. A speakers list, schedule, and additional information can be found on the EESI website.
