The Nanotech Hub presents over the Internet the Program from the Pacific Rim Conference in Nanoscience, Broome, Australia to be held 7-12 September 2004. The conference is chaired by Professor Nick Quirke, Imperial College London, and includes contributions from leading researchers in the Pacific Region, in addition to invited top speakers from Europe and the USA.
All lectures including slides and audio from the conference will be available through the Web site located at http://nanotech.colayer.net/, starting during the conference week and continuing through September and October.
All virtual registrants may present a poster through the Web site for viewing and discussion.
This conference is multidisciplinary, includes the disciplines of physics, chemistry, biology and engineering, and contains a significant amount of leading chemistry research in nanoscience.
The program covers current key research areas in nanoscience including nanofluidics, nanobio interfaces, nanofabrication, water, energy and minerals, nanoparticles, and computational nanoscience. Lectures on hot topics and workshops will also accompany the invited speaker program.
The virtual conference provides an opportunity to those unable to attend the physical conference in Broome, Australia to access and listen to all talks from the conference and to post questions and discussion items.
