This symposium brings together industrial, government and academic researchers to discuss recent developments and challenges, and future opportunities at the interface of the analytical sciences and nanotechnology.

Presentations will discuss:

  • New techniques and needs to analyze nanoscale material
  • Use of nanoscale materials to develop new analytical techniques
  • Challenges and needs for analytical capabilities in nanotechnology
  • Importance to life sciences, energy, environment, and other sectors

Registration begins at 8:00 am. A series of oral and poster presentations start at 8:45 am from researchers in academic, industry and government sectors. The event concludes with a networking and social period starting at 5:30 pm, following the awards ceremony for all of the poster presenters.
