Just a quick reminder to our readers that Nano-App Summit 2007 will be happening at the Ritz Carlton hotel in downtown Cleveland, Ohio on October 22 through 25.   This year’s conference features three separate days devoted to nanotechnology applications in automotive, cleantech, and defense industries.  Porter Wright Morris & Arthur LLP is sponsoring a reception on Wednesday night, and is also conducting a pre-conference workshop — "Nanotechnology and Environmental Health and Safety: What You Need to Know" — on Monday afternoon.   In addition to several of our nanotechnology "regulars," the workshop will feature Jerry Bahlmann of our nanotechnology practice group.  Jerry works out of our Columbus, Ohio office and is former General Counsel for Battelle Memorial Institute which currently manages several national research laboratories for the US Department of Energy.  Jerry brings a lot of first-hand experience to EHS legal issues faced by large corporations and research institutions, and we hope you will take the opportunity to meet him and our other nanotechnology attorneys at the conference.
