July 15, 2004: Experts to Explore Advanced Nanotechnology at New Conference

Foresight Institute Event Highlights Research, Applications and Policy

Palo Alto, CA July 15, 2004 Foresight Institute, a nanotechnology education and public policy think tank, is sponsoring the 1st Conference on Advanced Nanotechnology: Research, Applications, and Policy, October 22-24, 2004 at the Crystal City Marriott Hotel, Washington DC area.

"This is the first conference to focus on molecular machine systems and advanced nanotechnology," said Christine Peterson, president and founder of Foresight Institute. "The Conference targets the bottom-up goal of molecular machine systems and what this Next Industrial Revolution will mean for the environment, medicine, national competitiveness, and defense."

The 1st Conference on Advanced Nanotechnology: Research, Applications, and Policy is important for those interested in the Feynman goal for nanotechnology, including researchers, technologists, policy advisors, public interest representatives, investors, general public, and those aiming at a career in the field. The Conference will provide a stimulating multi-disciplinary environment enabling broad exploration of this anticipated revolution in how matter is controlled.

Each day of the 1st Conference on Advanced Nanotechnology is dedicated to in-depth exploration and discussion of a critical area driving molecular manufacturing: research status, disruptive applications, and policy issues.

Day One: 1st Symposium on Molecular Machine Systems, chaired by William A. Goddard III (Caltech) and. Ralph Merkle (Georgia Tech) will focus on technical research on advanced nanotechnology. Researchers and technologists are encouraged to attend.

Day Two: 1st Forum on Molecular Manufacturing Applications, chaired by. Patrick Parker (Naval Postgraduate School) and Brad Templeton (Electronic Frontier Foundation) will discuss the applications and uses for advanced nanotechnology. This day is tailored for policy advisors, investors, public interest representatives, researchers, technologists, and the general public.

Day Three: 1st Forum on Advanced Nanotechnology Policy, chaired by. Glenn Reynolds (U. Tenn.) and Howard Lovy (NanoBot) will focus on what policies need to be in place for advanced nanotechnology. Policy advisors, public interest representatives, and nanotechnology trackers are encouraged to attend.
