Scientific development significantly impacts the world in which we live, affecting our life styles and the environment. In the 1950s the development of transistors revolutionized our communication. In the 1960s, laser technology affected many aspects of our daily life involving communication, medicine and entertainment, among others. In the 1970s the invention of integrated circuits was the foundation for the development of microcomputers, which has revolutionized the world. In the 1990s and into the new millennium, nanotechnology has ushered in a major era in the scientific world.
The Nanotechnology and Applications Conference was held on October 15-16, 2004 in the Morris Conference Center on the SUNY Oneonta campus. The conference brought scholars in the nanotechnology field to present their expertise in the following topics: (1) nanoscience and nanotechnology, (2) carbon nanotube manufacturing, (3) micro- and nano-therapeutics, (4) micro and nanoscale sensors and devices, (5) nanomaterials and nanocomposites, (6) nanomaterials for nanotechnology, and (7) nanobiotechnology.
This conference was sponsored by the Conversations in the Disciplines Program of the State University of New York.
