2006 Berkeley Nanotechnology Forum
Announcement of a Nanotechnology event: Come join the Bay Area Nanotechnology Community
The third annual Berkeley Nanotechnology Forum 2006 (BNF06) will focus on where nanotechnology is being used today and explore promising future applications at an all-day forum on Saturday, April 15, at the Haas School of Business.
The theme for this year’s forum is "Nanotechnology: Living up to the Promise." The keynote speakers will be Stan Williams, director of quantum research for Hewlett Packard Labs, and Matthew Nordan, president of Lux Research. Panel discussions for the day include Future Funding for Nanotechnology Innovation, Nano-Energy Applications, and Nano-Bio Applications. The panels will be populated by representatives from companies and research organizations including IBM, GE Research, Nanomix, Excellin Life Sciences, Harris & Harris Group, MDV, the National Cancer Institute, and the Office of Naval Research. The event will also showcase student research in a poster session with more than 50 posters from Bay Area universities and research centers.
Reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of nanotechnology, the forum brings together students and faculty from across the Berkeley campus and from several Bay Area universities including Stanford University, UC Davis, UC San Francisco, and UC Santa Cruz, and the Lawrence Livermore Lab as well as entrepreneurs and public and private sector sources of funding. The Nanotechnology Forum was founded by business and engineering students three years ago to leverage the many activities, innovations, and startups in nanotechnology that have sprung from UC Berkeley.
The event is sponsored by the Molecular Foundry at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the Berkeley Nanosciences & Nanoengineering Institute, the Management of Technology Program, the College of Chemistry, the College of Engineering, the College of Letters & Science, the Department of Physics, the Haas School of Business, CITRIS, and the Lester Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation.
Attendees receive a continental breakfast, lunch, and a t-shirt. Visit nanoclub.berkeley.edu for more information.
