Registration Open for 2015 Nanoinformatics Workshop

National Nanomanufacturing Network - December 8, 2014 - 4:31am
Nanoinformatics Workshop: Enabling successful discovery and applications January 26-28, 2015Holiday Inn National Airport Hotel Arlington, VA REGISTER FOR THE WORKSHOP TODAY (https://umass.irisregistration.com/Auth/Authenticate/Index?ReturnUrl=%2fRegister%3fcode%3dNanoinformatics code=Nanoinformatics) Regular attendees: $200, Students: FREE Registration for the Nanoinformatics 2015 workshop (http://nanoinformatics.org/2015/overview) is now available. Registration is open until January 16, 2015, but please note that discounted hotel reservations (http://nanoinformatics.org/2015/venue) have a December 29, 2014 deadline. The purpose of the NanoInfo 2015 workshop is to bring together stakeholders in order to assess the state of informatics relevant to the all aspects of the nanotechnology enterprise and to set priority targets for the future. From materials to processes to products; accessible data, information, models, and simulations will enable innovators to optimize performance and accelerate the innovation cycle from concept to product. Scientists and engineers will be able to efficiently assess the safety of new nanomaterials and quantitatively implement best practices of safe manufacturing and usage of nanomaterials throughout product lifecycles. Scientists will share predictive models and data that enable the design and discovery of nanomaterials and the resulting performance of systems that use them.Workshop Structure and Highlights NanoInfo 2015 will begin with a pre-workshop half-day tutorial, held on Monday, January 26 in the afternoon. The technical sessions will be held from Tuesday January 27 through Wednesday January 28. Accepted abstracts will be assigned to either a formal presentation session or to the poster presentation and discussion session on Tuesday.Workshop Exhibit and Sponsorship OpportunitiesNanoInfo 2015 is accepting sponsorship applications (http://nanoinformatics.org/node/54), offering marketing and workshop participation for those interested in supporting the event.
