The National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) has been able to identify a limited source of funds to provide travel support for representatives of regional, state, or local (RSL) nanotechnology initiatives with the United States to participate in the 2012 Regional, State, and Local Initiatives in Nanotechnology Workshop (RSL 2012), being held May 1-2, 2012 in Portland, Oregon.
Funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis. To qualify, please submit a draft poster for presentation at the RSL 2012 Poster Session to Jim Kadtke of NNCO (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible. If approved, we will put you in touch with our travel agent. We are looking for posters that describe your nanotechnology-related regional, state, or local initiative, including any information you can provide on origins, funding sources, success stories, and issues that you have overcome. At this time, we are limiting travel support to one individual per RSL organization.
We hope to see you at this exciting event! For more information, see the main workshop page at www.nano.gov/RSL2012
Participation in the Poster Session is mandatory for those groups receiving travel support from the NNCO. The poster session is, however, open to all participants and attendees of the conference, on a first-come, first-served based until all spaces are filled.
There are no hard and fast rules about poster size at this point, but we encourage you to get in touch with us regarding your needs, e.g., easels, floor space, etc. (A standard size U.S. poster is 27" x 41".) Posters should describe your nanotechnology-related regional, state, or local initiative, including any information you can provide on origins, funding sources, success stories, and issues that you have overcome.
