Under the theme of "Orienteering for Nano Convergence", the event will showcase cutting-edge nano micro technologies, the core technology for all industries, and present ideas for converging with other industries and ways to foster new trends for convergence.
Especially, this year the International Printed Electronics Expo 2009 will also be held along with the Nano Korea Exhibition, the Micro Tech World (co- hosted by Korea, Japan and Germany), and the Nano Korea Symposium. This year's event will feature printed electronics as well as nano and micro technology.
The Nano Korea Exhibition will showcase nano materials converging diverse industries, nano device/component technologies and products related to nano processes (measurement/analysis). The Nano Korea Symposium will feature speeches and sessions with distinguished scholars such as Prof. Zhores Alferov (Vice Chairman of the St. Petersburg Science Center), who won the Nobel Prize in physics in 2000.
Programs for foreign participants include an "Online Matchmaking" system for arranging meetings with participating companies in advance, and an official reception where they can interact with more than 500 nano experts for the sake of networking.
