This year we are adding a new and exciting track to Nanotech 2007 called the The Future of Nanotech Business. This series of presentations will be of special interest to the business and investment community, as well as those scientists and engineers who have an interest in how the business side of the nanotechnology equation is likely to unfold. These six sessions, covering energy & cleantech, water purification, healthcare, electronics, aerospace & transportation and advanced materials will provide the audience with expert opinion, perspective and understanding of how nanotechnologies will impact the business of each of these major industrial sectors. We have asked a leader from each of these key application areas to peer into their crystal ball and tell us how they see nanotechnology impacting their sector and evolving over time. These gurus will be to provide the audience with actionable information that will allow them to make more informed business and/or investment decisions in the sectors covered. The presentations will address anticipated disruptions, innovations, trends, market impacts and major challenges resulting from the development of nanotechnology-based products in the sector. The presentations will provide insights into what pathways and courses of action will be viable and which will not, and what issues will be significant as nanotechnology impacts these sectors. After the presentation, the floor will be opened to questions for our distinguished speakers on how they see the business future of nanotechnology. The sectors that will be addressed are:
