Nanoinformatics 2011: Call for posters
(Nanowerk News) Nanoinformatics 2011 will bring together informatics experts, nanotechnology researchers, and other stakeholders and potential contributors to advance Nanoinformatics 2020 Roadmap goals. The workshop will set a clear path for Nanoinformatics participants through strategic planning sessions, open discussions, and the presentation of projects and research.
The conference will be held December 7-9, 2011 in Arlington, VA, at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City hotel. December 7th and 8th are open to the public. December 9th will be a working day for Nanoinformatics 2020 pilot participants, affiliates, and conference organizers.
Participants are invited to submit poster abstracts that:
Describe existing nanoinformatics projects within a specific nanotechnology application area
Describe informatics exemplars from outside the nanotechnology domain that would be appropriate models for nanoinformatics
Describe novel approaches to the collection and/or curation of nanotechnology data
Demonstrate innovative use of computational and/or information technologies to solve problems within the nanotechnology domain
Address cultural, legal, or ethical barriers to data sharing within the nanotechnology community
Participants are welcome to submit posters that address the Nanoinformatics 2011 themes: Quantitative Structure Activity Relationships and Minimum Required Characteristics. More information about the workshop themes can be found on our themes page: http://nanotechinformatics.org/workshopthemes
Abstracts of no more than 500 words in length that describe a project or approach as outlined above will be reviewed by program theme co-chairs. Submit your abstract here: http://nanotechinformatics.org/nidocuments/add
Submissions will be accepted until November 14, 2011.
Authors will be notified about the status of their submission as it is reviewed.
