Special Symposium

Consistent with the scientific origins of the conference, this symposium provides a forum to present the societal, health, and environmental benefits offered by nanotechnology, and to discuss regulatory, health and policy issues surrounding the rapid development and commercialization of these technologies. Presentations will include technical and commercial breakthroughs along with addressing of societal issues by industry, government and environmental organizations. Goals include:

  • Establish a strong base of understanding about the best thinking on the safety, health, environmental and social implications of nanotech;
  • Engage the mainstream science and business community on the full range of topics associated with these issues;
  • Communicate the degree to which the scientific community takes these issues seriously and is dealing with them methodically; and,
  • Become a key gathering place for the community of people and institutions interested in the safety, environmental and social implications of nanotechnology.
