INC7 Conference > About INC
"TO FOSTER COMMUNICATION AND COOPERATION ON NANOTECHNOLOGY SUBJECTS AMONG THE ORGANIZERS, SPONSORS AND THE WORLD SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY TO STIMULATE AND SUPPORT ECONOMIC GROWTH IN THE 21ST CENTURY."
Global senior researchers, industry leaders and policy makers gather at the annual International Nanotechnology Conference on Communication and Cooperation for in-depth discussions and technical sessions on a variety of issues related to the future of international collaboration in nanotechnologies.
In order to further strengthen the continuous dialogue between Europe, Japan and the United States, the INC effort provides broad regional overviews combined with detailed presentations from each of the regions.
INC is one of the key events for policy makers, industry leaders and senior researchers to attend in order to stay informed of the developments in major research programs worldwide.
The electronics industry has been the major enabler of the computer, communication and consumer industries throughout the 20th century. They have propelled the growth of the economy Most of the building blocks of these industries will reach fundamental limits by the end of the next decade.
It is of critical importance that these limits are overcome in the next ten years.
- Make overview presentations of regional Nanotechnology programs supported by the organizers including Government, Industry, and Academia.
- Include a theme on Nano-electronics in each conference
- Foster communications and cooperation among Nano-electronics initiatives and other fields, e.g. chemistry, opto/display electronics, biology etc.
- Include presentations and posters on relevant nanotechnologyu subjects from other regions (i.e. non organizers) as submitted by request and subject to availability, to stimulate additional communications and cooperation
- Technical sessions highlight today's state of affairs and tomorrow's challenges and bottlenecks regarding various related domains in nanoelectronics and explore the links with related areas, such as biotechnology, advanced materials development, microsystems and photonics.
- A topical session highlights the economical and societal implications of nanotechnology.
