Nanomanufacturing remains the essential bridge between the discoveries of the nanosciences and commercialization of nanotechnology products . Nanomanufacturing is the controllable manipulation of materials structures, components, devices/machines, and systems at the nanoscale (0.1 to 100 nanometers) in one, two, and three dimensions for large-scale reproducibility of value-added components and devices. Nanomanufacturing encompasses bottom-up directed assembly, top-down high resolution processing, molecular systems engineering, and hierarchical integration with larger scale systems. As dimensional scales of materials and molecular systems approach the nanoscale, the conventional rules governing the behavior and properties of these components, devices, and systems change significantly. As such, the behavior of the final product is enabled by the collective performance of the nanoscale building blocks.

The National Nanomanufacturing Network (NNN) in conjunction with the NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA), is pleased to announce a Call for Abstracts for the 10th Annual NanoBusiness/Nanomanufacturing Summit 2011, to be held in Boston, September 25-27, 2011. Contributions in the area of nanomanufacturing and commercialization of nanotechnology-enabled products are being solicited from experts and organizations in the field, along with the broader nanomanufacturing community. Topics include technical, business, regulatory, and standards areas. Abstracts for papers are being solicited for these key focus areas and topics having an emphasis on nanomanufacturing approaches, applications, research challenges, along with scaled production and commercialization. The technical program tracks and session sub-topics further include:

– Applications, Markets, and Commercialization
– Energy & Power
– Environmental Health and Safety in Nanomanufacturing
– Green Nanomanufacturing
– Integrated Nanomanufacturing Processes
– Metrology, Analytical Tools, and Standards for Nanomanufacturing
– Nanoelectronics & Sensors
– Nanomedicine & Biotechnology
– Nanomanufacturing Workforce Training Needs
– Nanomaterials

The conference is being held September 25th-27th at:
