Nanotechnology conference: Theoretical assessment of the biological effects of nanomaterials
(Nanowerk News) The Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics announced the Nordita research program and symposium on "Theoretical Assessment of the Biological Effects of Nanomaterials". The event will be organized by Prof. Ilpo Vattulainen and Emppu Salonen, March 6-28, 2009, in Stockholm, Sweden.
Please note that this nanotechnology event consists of two parts. First, the program
itself (March 6-28) is a three week think-tank on three different
themes: theory and computation (week 1), experiments (week 2) and
applications (week 3).
The daily schedule will consist of 1-2 talks in
the morning, followed by discussion sessions and planning of possible
collaborations and other joint activities in the afternoon. The evenings
will be free for any social activity, reading, thinking, and so forth.
There will be workspace and accommodation (courtesy of
Nordita) for 20-25 participants at any given time. Thus, the attendance
to this part of the event will be limited. The participants can either
take part in the whole program or some limited amount of time (e.g. one
of the themes).
Second, the symposium that will be arranged in conjunction with the
program, March 23-24, is a regular two-day scientific meeting with
invited and contributed talks and possible panel discussion sessions. We
are expecting some 75-100 people to attend this meeting. The symposium
will be free of charge and open for everyone.
The participation slots will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. You are encouraged you to act promptly in order to guarantee your participation in the program.
