•  Strategy, Analysis and Simulation
•  Bionano Systems
•  Commercially Implemented Nanotechnology
•  Electronic and Optical Nanosystems
•  Self-Organizing & Adaptive Systems

To be successful, today’s groundbreaking atomic- and molecular-scale science and engineering must be integrated into more complex micro- and macro-systems. Nanoengineered devices and materials are being targeted at a wide range of uses throughout biotechnology, medicine, electronics, defense, energy conversion and storage, coatings, textiles, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and food & food security.

Increasing momentum in this process will drive further progress toward advanced nanotechnologies.  Therefore, this year’s Foresight Conference focuses on Integration, and co-chairs Robert Meagley and William Goddard have been curating an exceptional line-up of speakers.

We are especially excited that Dr. Paolo Gargini has agreed to be our Keynote speaker. Dr. Gargini is the former VP of Technology Strategy at Intel and is currently the Chairman of ITRS, the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors. He will share with us his unique perspective of applied and emerging nanotech, especially on how the semiconductor industry has been driving to atomic precision and spinning off materials and technologies discovered along the way.
Additional speakers include:
  • Cliff Henderson, Functional Organic Materials, Georgia Tech
  • Philip Wong, Stanford Nanoelectronics Lab
  • Steven Roscoe, 3M Central Research
  • Ron Zuckermann, Molecular Foundry, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab
  • Reza Arghavani, LAM Research
  • Banning Garrett, Atlantic Council
  • Boris Kobrin, Rolith Inc.
  • Mark Akeson, Biomolecular Engineering, UC Santa Cruz
The conference will include the Feynman Prize Luncheon on Saturday. In addition there will be offsite no-host, topic-based discussion groups for Sunday lunch.

We have reserved a special $100 discount for those who register early. This discount applies during early registration ending November 20, which is coming up fast. To take advantage of this discount when you register for the conference, use promotional code NANOBLOG.

We look forward to discussion the integration of Nanotechnology with you in February!
