NSF NSE Will Hold Grantees Conference on Progress in Nanotechnology

Lynn L. Bergeson Carla N. Hutton


The National Science Foundation (NSF) Nanoscale Science and Engineering (NSE) grantees conference on progress in nanotechnology will be held December 12-13, 2017.  The conference will highlight the research and education activities of ongoing NSE grant projects.  It will include a combination of keynotes, panels, posters, program information sessions, discussions of research trends, and principal investigator meetings with NSF program directors.  The conference will address the following themes:

  • Day 1: Progress in foundational nanotechnology and infrastructure — Nanoscale modeling and simulation and use of big data, nanotechnology based-devices and systems by design, two-dimensional materials and quantum phenomena in nanoscale systems, nano-research centers, and the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI) and nanoHUB; and
  • Day 2: Progress in grand challenges and convergence — Advanced nanomanufacturing (convergence with bio, cyber, cogno, and artificial intelligence), brain-like cognitive engineering systems, education challenges, and societal aspects.
