Upcoming Meetings and Events

The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) expedites the discovery, development and deployment of nanoscale science and technology to serve the public good. To fulfill this vision, the NNI coordinates, sponsors and manages meetings and workshops on a wide range of topics from basic research to exploring the potential environmental, health and safety risks of nanotechnology.

Experts from industry, academia, and the Federal Government, as well as the general public, take part in these meetings and workshops to probe the state of the science in nanotechnology research and to identify gaps and emerging trends in nanotechnology-related research.

This list includes both NNI-sponsored and -affiliated workshops, as well as outside nanotechnology-related workshops that may be of interest to the public and to our stakeholders. If you would like your event to be considered for this list, please submit your event here.

Cellulose Nanomaterial: A Path Towards Commercialization workshop

This USDA & NNI sponsored workshop will bring together high level executives from government and multiple industrial sectors to identify pathways for the commercialization of cellulose nanomaterials and facilitate communication across industry sectors to determine common challenges.

NanoBusiness Commercialization Association Roundtable

This will be the NanoBCA's 12th visit meeting with government officials from the Legislative and Executive Branches regarding the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI).

Tenth International Nanotechnology Conference on Communication and Cooperation (INC 10)

The INC vision is to foster international communication and cooperation on nanotechnology and particularly on nanoelectronics between industry, academic and government partners to advance innovation in computer, communications, electronics, and related industries.

Los Alamos Nat'l Lab: Mesoscale Science Frontiers

This conference will span theory, computation and experiment across multiple disciplines. It will aim to find a common discourse and understanding for this re-emerging topic, the intermediate region of scale and complexity, where the differences realized in the “more” begin.

58th Annual International Conference on Electron, Ion, and Photon Beam Technology and Nanofabrication

EIPBN, the “3-Beams”, Conference, is the premier conference on the science and technology of nanopatterning. Traditionally focused on electron, ion, and photon beams, (the 3 beams), the technology of nanofabrication covered in this conference has grown to include nanoimprint and molecular self-assembly as well.

NSTI: Nanotech 2014

The world’s largest nanotechnology event, Nanotech 2014, delivers application-focused research from the top international academic, government, and private industry labs.

International Conference on Nanoscience + Technology (ICN+T)

The 2014 International Conference on Nanoscience + Technology (ICN+T) will provide an international forum for discussion of the latest developments in nanoscale science and technology and recent advances in scanning probe microscopy and related techniques.

SPIE NanoScience + Engineering

SPIE NanoScience + Engineering 2014 is the largest nanotechnology conferences of its kind.

Democratizing Technologies: Assessing the roles of NGOs in shaping technological futures

Democratizing Technologies focuses on NGOs with environmental and social justice concerns regarding new technologies and asks: How can NGOs produce more equitable and sustainable outcomes of emerging technologies? What are the implications of NGO participation in governance for democracy and technological futures?

Nanotechnology for Defense Conference (NT4D)

Initiated over a decade ago by the Air Force Research Laboratory, Army Research Laboratory, the Office of Naval Research, the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the NT4D remains the premier event addressing emerging and nano technologies for defense.
