||The broad objective of the Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology (CNST) workshop is to showcase University of Illinois research in bionanotechnology/ nanomedicine, nanoelectronics/nanophotonics, nanomaterials/nanomanufacturing, and computational nanotechnology/nanomechanics.
The general framework of the nanotechnology workshop is similar to those held on campus since 2003; which were all well attended by industry and academia.Some of those interactions have since then led to industry and cross-campus collaborations. The CNST-led forums and workshops have contributed tremendously toward the formation of multidisciplinary teams leading to the establishment of multi-million dollar new nanotechnology centers on-campus.
The workshop will provide a forum for industry interactions and collaborations. The workshop brings together campus community (faculty, graduate and undergraduates, administration) from UIUC and other academic institutions, and industry engaged in cutting-edge research. A workshop panel will discuss the roadmap to future direction of research and development in nanotechnology and regional partnerships.
Format: The two-day workshop will be held on May 6 and 7, 2010 at the renowned National Center for Supercomputing Applications, and the Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The workshop program includes plenary session speeches, technical sessions, panel discussion, and poster sessions, in addition to lunch and dinner receptions.
