Dr. Tadashi Sasaki, a founder of the modern day Sharp Corporation, will represent the interests of corporate leaders in Japan at international conference in Dallas in October.
Dallas, Texas. Returning for the second year in a row during International Nanotechnology Week, Dr. Sasaki (still sharp at age 94) will be a featured speaker at nanoTX’07 conference and trade expo October 3-4. Held each year at the Dallas Convention Center, this is the most comprehensive nanotechnology event outside of Tokyo.
Dr. Sasaki is considered a giant of Japanese industry, the force behind Sharp's dominance in the electronic marketplace, and one of few men who brought Japan economic dominance after WWII. He is often described as “gifted…, someone with the genius, vision, discipline, and persistence (that drove) the (Sharp) company into a new realm.”
A contemporary of Dr. John Bardeen, one of the co-inventors of the transistor, Dr. Sasaki has been very active in promoting semiconductor technology to the Japanese government and building Sharp into the powerhouse it is today.
Dr. Sasaki will be in good company as top technical and management from major firms in the US & abroad have already registered to attend.
Highlights of nanoTX’07 at a GLANCE
The Nanotechnology Conference & Trade Expo during International Nanotechnology Week, presented by the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) at the Dallas Convention Center October 3-4, 2007, is created to highlight the world's commercial micro and nanotechnology initiatives and hosts luminaries of the business and scientific community under one roof, bringing nanotech issues to the forefront while sharing knowledge and solutions.
Exhibitors at nanoTX show their brands as major industry leaders in science, technology, engineering, and the Nanotech Business Community. This vital conference attracts attention from thousands of technology leaders in the Americas and abroad. nanoTX means business, and succeeds by working closely with Industry, Capital, Governments, Universities and R&D labs.
Here top minds from around the world confer at important Summits in Energy, Health, Environment, Advanced Materials, CMOS, Printed Electronics, etc.
Centerpiece to the event this year is NASA’s Moon Base program, Lockheed Martin’s Orion Spacecraft, and life-like Hanson and Kumotek Robotics.
The kick-off the night before is an invitation-only Nobel Laureate Legends evening, the industry’s premier networking event, this year featuring the Buckyball Discovery Team Reunion.
