NNCO: Introduction to Nanoinformatics

Written by: 
Marlowe Newman, NNCO

Friday, October 2, 2015 12:00 - 1:00 PM EDT

This webinar will introduce basic nanoinformatics concepts to non-specialists and is supported by Federal agencies participating in the Nanotechnology Knowledge Infrastructure (NKI) Signature Initiative. Specific topics to be covered include a summary of basic nanoinformatics concepts, a discussion of the benefits and applications of informatics, and an overview of the NKI NSI.

Panelists include Mark Hoover (Senior Scientist at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health), Christina Liu (Program Director at the NCI Office of Cancer Nanotechnology Research), Robert Hanisch (Director of NIST's Office of Data and Informatics), and Daryl Hess (Program Director in the Division of Materials Research at NSF).

Webinar viewers will be able to submit questions for the panelists to answer during the Q&A period. Questions can also be submitted to a week prior to the date of the webinar through the end of the event. During the question-and-answer segment of the webinars, submitted questions will be considered in the order received and may be posted on the NNI website. A moderator will identify relevant questions and pose them to the speakers. Due to time constraints, not all questions may be addressed during the webinar. The moderator reserves the right to group similar questions and to skip questions, as appropriate.
