NanoScale lab to celebrate 30th anniversary on June 14

May '07
After 30 years as a premier national nanotechnology research hub, Cornell NanoScale Science and Technology Facility (CNF) will celebrate its birthday June 14 with the future in mind.

CNF expects hundreds of guests, including many from the Cornell research community, to attend its 30th anniversary celebration, "The Future of Nanotechnology." The event, doubling as the facility's annual meeting, will feature notable speakers, technical presentations and a poster session.

"This is not only to celebrate the past, but to plan for the future," said CNF director George Malliaras. "That's why we're bringing in the best of the best, to educate ourselves as to where we want to go."

Three invited experts will deliver remarks during the morning session, 7:30 a.m. to noon: Stanley Williams, senior fellow of HP Labs and founding director of its Quantum Science research group, will speak on future trends in nanotechnology; James Heath, professor of chemistry at the California Institute of Technology, will address the emerging field of nanomedicine; and Sheila Jasanoff, Harvard science and technology studies professor, will discuss ethical and social issues facing nanotechnology today.

The afternoon sessions, starting at 1:30 p.m., will comprise three tracks of speakers who will explore aspects of the broader topics.

Kicking off the day's speakers will be Edward Wolf, Cornell professor emeritus of electrical and computer engineering and CNF director from 1987 to 1993; Lawrence Goldberg, senior engineering adviser of electrical and communications systems for the National Science Foundation; and Malliaras, CNF's director since July 2006.
