Upcoming Conferences

Upcoming Asian Nanotechnology Conferences

May 19-21, 2002
Paving the Road to Nanotechnology, Roosevelt Hotel, New York City
You may submit proposals over the Web at:

The deadline for submission is January 28, 2002.  We are seeking conference session proposals that describe applications and commercialization opportunities for small tech, discuss and debate trends and issues in-depth, describe cutting-edge research and development, outline best practices for marketplace and industry expansion, and examine opportunities in investment and financing of small tech initiatives.

Priority is given to speakers with hands-on experience, unique and current information and perspectives, and broad industry knowledge. Precedence is also given to those speakers offering specific, real-world answers to specific, real-world questions. All sessions will be highly interactive, and speakers should offer presentations designed to engage attendees.   To ensure integrity of the conference for attendees, we caution that these sessions are not to be "sales pitches" and should focus on solutions that are independent of specific vendors and brands.

The NanoBusiness Spring Curriculum Sketch lists many topic areas that we believe will be of maximum interest to the audience in attendance. However, we are open to other ideas that will engage the immediate interest of the executives attending the conferences. While the listed topics are a starting point for the industry's discussion about the nanotechnology, compelling variations on these topics and other, new topics are also welcome.
