Special Symposium

Nanotechnology takes manufacturing to the molecular level. Research in this area is opening new fields of development and applications in many areas: materials science (nanostructured materials), medicine, biotechnology, genomics, manufacturing, computing, information technology and communications.

As research progresses, nanomaterials with improved functionality will be created. These materials will be the foundation for new generations of products and devices.

This special symposium will highlight developing innovative technologies based on the judicious manipulation and modification of the chemical and physical structures of materials at the nano dimension.

We invite you to participate in the Nanotech 2008 Nanostructured Materials & Devices Special Symposium. Please submit your abstract below. We highly encourage your participation in this community, through your comments, suggestions and offers for assistance in review and organization.
