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.
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,
