Past Meetings and Events


Engineers Week

Events include Future City 2014 and Discover Engineering Family Day at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.

nano tech 2014

Japan's annual "nano tech" is the world's largest nanotechnology exhibition, hosting more than 50,000 attendees year. For more information on the event, please visit http://www.nanotechexpo.jp/. Contact Stacey Standridge (sstandridge@nnco.nano.gov) if you would like to participate in the U.S. Pavilion at the expo.

IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM)

With a history stretching back nearly 60 years, the IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM) is the world’s pre-eminent forum for reporting technological breakthroughs in the areas of semiconductor and electronic device technology, design, manufacturing, physics, and modeling.

2013 U.S.-EU Bridging NanoEHS Research Efforts Workshop

The U.S.-EU Communities of Research (CORs) provide a platform for scientists to identify and overcome critical nanoEHS research gaps and barriers. This workshop is intended to publicize progress towards COR goals, communicate future plans, share best practices, and identify areas of cross-Community collaboration. More information is available at http://us-eu.org/2013-u-s-eu-nanoehs-workshop/.

MRS 2014 Fall Meeting and Exhibit

Fall meeting of the Materials Research Society.

Nanotechnology for Defense (NT4D)

NT4D focuses on accelerating the rate of transition from discovery to technology, and is committed to providing a fertile and stimulating forum for discussion on recent nanotechnology innovations in order to maximize their impact on defense and dual-use technologies.

2nd Annual Conference of the Sustainable Nanotechnology Organization

The conference program will address the critical aspects of sustainable nanotechnology such as life cycle assessment, green synthesis, green energy, industrial partnerships, environmental and biological fate, and the overall sustainability of engineered nanomaterials.

The 6th International Symposium on Nanotechnology, Occupational and Environmental Health

The 6th International Symposium on Nanotechnology, Occupational and Environmental Health (NanOEH) will provide a high quality of scientific forum for scientists and practitioners to present and discuss the interaction between technical advances and societal, occupational and environmental impacts in the field of nanotechnology research.

NSF/ONR: Workshop on Key Scientific and Technological Issues for Development of Next-Generation Organic Solar Cells

The goal of this workshop is to summarize a strategic plan to address key issues in materials synthesis, device design, and photovoltaic processes control for developing next-generation organic solar cells with device efficiencies greater than 15 %.

Stakeholder Perspectives on the Perception, Assessment, and Management of the Potential Risks of Nanotechnology (R3 Workshop)

This one and a half day, 100 – 120 person public workshop will attempt to highlight practical tools that might be used by non-Federal decision makers in their consideration of potential risks, including quantitative and qualitative assessment and management methods.
