2014 Foresight Technical Conference: Integration

Dates: February 7 – 9, 2014
Location: Palo Alto, California

To be successful, today’s groundbreaking atomic- and molecular-scale science and engineering must be integrated into more complex micro- and macro-systems. Nanoengineered devices and materials are being targeted at a wide range of uses throughout biotechnology, medicine, electronics, defense, energy conversion and storage, coatings, textiles, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and food & food security.

Increasing momentum in this process will drive further progress toward advanced nanotechnologies.  Therefore, this year’s Foresight Conference focuses on Integration, and co-chairs Robert Meagley and William Goddard have been curating an exceptional line-up of speakers.

Over 20 speakers will present their research and vision within the realm of groundbreaking atomic- and molecular-scale science and engineering with applications across a wide range of advanced technologies, including materials, electronics, energy conversion, biotechnology and more. Events will include presentation of the annual Foresight Institute Feynman Prize, one of the most prestigious awards in nanoscale science and technology.

Analysis, simulation, synthesis, and mass production are challenges for nanotechnology integration in such diverse applications as biotechnology, medicine, microelectronics, defense, energy conversion and storage, coatings, textiles, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and even food and food security.

Topics include:

• Strategy, Analysis and Simulation
• Bionano Systems
• Commercially Implemented Nanotechnology
• Electronic and Optical Nanosystems
• Self-Organizing & Adaptive Systems
