Special Symposium

The convergence of materials, electronics and biological systems at the nanoscale are creating unprecedented opportunities for multidisciplinary teams developing novel bio sensors and diagnostics solutions. While systems such as motors have been isolated, modified and studied in detail at the biochemical level, much needs to be done at the level of hybrid structures with interfaces to inorganic materials. Further, scaling laws need to be understood in order to bridge between single molecules and higher order devices or architectures.

Alongwith these topics, this symposium will also cover the equally important area of biomolecular analysis, which has reached new levels of sensitivity, precision and resolution due to advances in other sciences. Thus, topics scuh as fluidics, detection methods and engineering approaches will receive enhanced attention.

We invite submissions in each of these areas and related topics. A sample listing of pertinent topics is listed below. This is by no means an exclusive list, but aims to give a general overview of this diverse symposium topic.
