NSF Workshop for a Future Nanotechnology Infrastructure Support Program Webcast

Written by: 

On August 18 and 19, 2014 the NSF will conduct a Workshop for a Future Nanotechnology Infrastructure Support Program.

The workshop is a next step in NSF's preparation for developing a program to succeed the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN), after having received community input in response to a recent Dear Colleague Letter (DCL 14-068).

To broaden engagement, portions of the Workshop for a Future Nanotechnology Infrastructure Support Program will be webcast. (The approximate webcast times shown below are Eastern Daylight Time.)

The workshop will convene a panel of experts from academe, industry, and government to:

  • develop a vision of how a future nanotechnology infrastructure support program could be structured, and
  • determine the key needs for the broad user communities over the coming decade. 

The workshop is co-chaired by Dr. Thomas Theis (IBM Research, on assignment to the Semiconductor Research Corporation) and Dr. Mark Tuominen (University of Massachusetts, Amherst).

More details are in the workshop agenda.

Webcast: August 18, 2014 8:00 AM  to 12:00 PM and August 19, 2014 8:00 AM  to 12:00 PM

Morning sessions of the workshop will be broadcast via WebEx; afternoon breakout sessions will not be broadcast.
