Thanks to all poster presenters and conference attendees who joined us for the Wednesday evening Poster Session and Reception. The event also featured a special student poster awards competition. Congratulations to our winners and thanks to all the students who participated.
The June 9-11, 2009 Conference on the Environmental Implications and Applications of Nanotechnology at the University of Massachusetts Amherst convened leading nano researchers, nano policy and regulatory experts, practitioners, manufacturers and users to better understand the environmental aspects of nanotechnology -- from characterization, fate and transport, and environmental health and safety, to green nanotechnology and new nanotechnology applications for pollution control, remediation, and sustainability. Sessions addressed both new research findings and policy and regulatory issues in three concurrent tracks over the course of three days. The conference featured keynote presentations from leading nano researchers and regulatory experts, 78 platforms presentations, plenary sessions, poster sessions, and special events. The Conference concluded with a special plenary panel of experts representing academia, industry, and government who drew upon the conference sessions and their various perspectives to discuss effective science-based decision making for the safe use of nanotechnology.
