The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany will host the International Nanotechnology Conference on Communication and Cooperation (INC7), an annual program to encourage worldwide partnerships in nanotechnology research, in an endeavor to foster economic growth.
Participants will include global industrialists, researchers and policy makers. The event will be held at CNSE’s Albany NanoTech Complex between May 16 and 19. It will help strengthen ties between Europe, Japan and the United States in nanotechnology. The event will feature presentations in each area, technical discussions on the scope and challenges in nanoelectronics, and discussions on the impacts of nanotechnology on economy and society.
According to Richard Brilla, CNSE vice president for Strategy, Alliances and Consortia, the event will provide a platform to share information and knowledge, foster partnerships on research, nanotechnology-based platforms and marketing strategies.
Dr. Leo Esaki, the 1973 Nobel Laureate in Physics will deliver the keynote address.
