The 2010 New England Nanomanufacturing Summit, which will be held at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell from June 22-24, 2010, will highlight areas of practice in the field of nanomanufacturing that are near-term and may soon be capable of commercial development and marketing. The challenges facing production of nanoscale systems and devices make the topic especially relevant to those interested in the manufacture of real-world nanotechnology products. The Summit is soliciting abstracts for topical papers focusing on emerging technologies, applications, and research challenges in the field of nanomanufacturing, including environmental health and safety, nanoelectronics, nanomanufacturing strategies for multiscale nanomanufacturing, and bio-inspired processes, among others.
