Summer of 2012 will be a very busy time for us in the Nanotechnology Community. We hope to see you at the four Nanotechnology Conferences listed below.

Workshop on Building the National Network for Manufacturing Innovation
Cuyahoga Community College
Cleveland, OH
July 9, 2012

Advance on-line registration is required:
Space is limited and sign-up will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Please limit participation to no more than 4 per organization.

This workshop is the second in a series of regional public workshops to gather ideas and suggestions for the design of the proposed National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI), to be held on July 9, 2012, at the Cuyahoga Community College in Warrensville Heights (Cleveland), Ohio.

GREENER NANO 2012: Nanoinformatics Tools and Resources Workshop
Courtyard Marriott Portland City Center
Portland, OR
July 30, 2012

Register for the workshop by July 15th!

GN2012 will bring together informatics groups with materials scientists and active nanoscience researchers to evaluate and reflect on the tools/resources that have recently emerged in support of predictive nanotechnology. The goals of this workshop are to establish a better understanding of current applications and clearly define immediate and projected informatics infrastructure needs for the nanotechnology community. We will use the theme of nanoEHS to provide real-world, concrete examples on how informatics can be utilized to advance our knowledge and guide nanoscience.

Join colleagues at the Nanomanufacturing Summit 2012 – showcasing emerging areas of nanomanufacturing and commercialization of nanotechnology-enabled products by leaders in the field of nanomanufacturing. This year’s event is being co-organized by the National Nanomanufacturing Network (NNN) and the NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA) (formerly the NanoBusiness Alliance), and provides an opportunity to network with the broader nanomanufacturing community to foster the critical collaboration and information exchange needed to realize both the societal and economic benefits offered by integrative nanomanufacturing techniques. A full program has been designed to feature keynote speakers along with invited and contributed presentations highlighting areas of research that facilitate the transition from fundamental research to innovation to implementation fostering the commercial development of nanoscale systems and devices. The event further includes research poster sessions, networking reception, and topical panel discussions on emerging trends and opportunities in nanomanufacturing and commercialization of nano-enabled technologies.
