Micro Nano Breakthrough Conference call for poster sessions and abstracts
(Nanowerk News) The nation's best regional 'small tech' conference, co-hosted by the Washington Technology Center and Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute (ONAMI) will be back for a fifth year after last year's wildly successful event. You are invited to participate!
When & where: September 8-10, 2008, Vancouver, Washington.
Prospective authors are invited to submit abstracts to the Fifth Annual Micro Nano Breakthrough Conference. Abstracts (300 word maximum) must be submitted no later than Monday, March 17, 2008. Approximately 30 presentation/panelist presentations and 30 posters (on display throughout the conference and at a special 2 hour reception) will be included in the program.
You will be notified no later than Friday, May 16, 2008. If your abstract is accepted, the abstract will be distributed to all conference attendees and posted on the conference website. You will also be required to electronically submit a final abstract and short bio for the conference program, and to prepare/submit PowerPoint or poster presentation materials in accordance with conference specifications.
Topics relevant to micro and nanoscale technologies for which abstracts are especially encouraged:
Nanomaterial-biological Interactions, EHS
Nano-bio Technologies: Tools and Diagnostics
Nanotechnology for Energy
Nanomaterials for Electro-optics
Novel Photovoltaic & Luminescent Devices
Micro-Energy and Chemical Systems
Micropower & Batteries
Nanotechnology and Forest Products
Nanoscale Measurement and Characterization
