Concurrent NSF Workshop on Programmed Self-Assembly: href="http://www.cs.duke.edu/~reif/FNANO/NSF

Foundations of Nanoscience is a yearly conference on foundations of nanoscience, maintaining the highest scientific standards. Self-assembly is the central theme of the conference. Topics include self-assembled architectures and devices, at scales ranging from nano-scale to meso-scale. Methodologies include both experimental as well as theoretical approaches.  The conference spans traditional disciplines including chemistry, biochemistry, physics, computer science, mathematics, and various engineering disciplines including MEMS.

Last year's 1st Conference on Foundations of Nanoscience(FNANO04) in April, 2004 had an significant impact on the emerging fields of Nanoscience and Self-assembly -- for the first time it brought many of the leading Nanoscientists and researchers working in a wide variety of areas of Self-assembly in the same place to present invited talks.

The upcoming 2nd Conference on Foundations of Nanoscience will have a modified format, with many contributed posters and open discussion periods to allow for attendee interaction, as well as invited talks by distinguished Nanoscientists.

Important Dates:
Paper and Poster Submission Website: http://fnano05.cs.duke.edu/submit/
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: extended to March 1, 2005 (this is now a firm deadline).
SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS: If you wish to present a talk or poster at FNANO05, you need to submit by March 1, 2005 an extended abstract of at least one page in PDF format. Submitted papers can be either an abstract or a paper, ranging in length between one page to 12 pages, at the author’s option. Even if your talk is invited, you still need to submit at least a one page abstract by this date.
SUBMISSION METHOD: Submissions are electronic via a Web interface at the above Paper and Poster Submission Website. Please make sure you have a browser that supports uploading via a web form.

The FNANO05 Conference Proceedings:
A hard copy of this year's FNANO05 Conference Proceedings will again provided to all registered FNANO05 Conference attendees and subsequently available from the electronic publisher Sciencetechnica.
The conference proceedings will include a 1 to 12 page paper for each invited or contributing speaker and a 1 to 5 page extended abstract for each poster presenter.
