Nanotech Convergence&Expo 2013
Time and Venue: May 12-16, 2013,Washington DC
Country: USA
View details »

This is the world's Largest technology-focused event on Nanotechnology delivers unmatched partnering and business opportunities. Thousands of leading researchers, scientists, engineers and technology developers participate in Nanotech to identify new technology trends, development tools, product opportunities, R&D collaborations, and commercialization partners.

NanoGlobe Highlights:

The NSTI Nanotech 2013 was held in Washington DC first time this year with an impressive turn out. Over 3000 visitors coming from all over the US and worldwide (total of 62 countries) participated at the conferences, workshops and exhibition. What’s unique from previous event was it managed to pull together all the US government funding agencies and national labs. I always find this event a great place to meet colleagues and make new contacts and most of all to learn the latest advanced in Nanotech R&D and particularly obtain insights of commercialization status. Different from the Japan Nanotech 20XX which attracts the most visitors (primarily due to the large number Japanese industry and academia visitors), NSTI Nanotech 20XX not only provides a window of the latest US development but also international development trends as increasing number of Asian and European companies are joining the event and we have no language barriers unlike most Asia nanotech events where posters, workshop, conferences are usually in Japanese, Koreas, and Chinese. And this is the largest industry and government funding agency gathering in world of nanotechnology.

Every possible aspect of nanotechnology is covered following the program tracks: a) Fabrication, Characterization & Tools, b) Advanced Materials, c) Electronics & Microsystem, d) Medical & Biotech, e) Energy & Environment and f) Business Partnering. The Nanotech 2013 has evolved from a technical event to the TechConnect World where Microtech, Biottech, Cleantech and TechConnect Partnering Summit are co-located with Nanotech. It provides a unique opportunity to connect government, researchers and industry players. And this year National Innovation Summit & Showcase served as a platform for partnering with leading Federal Agency programs along with the Nation's top commercially viable innovations.

Summary of the entire TechConnect World can be view at http://www.techconnectworld.com/World2013/DAG.html, and Nanotech program can be view at http://www.techconnectworld.com/Nanotech2013/

There were 314 booths this year from 16 countries. At the exhibition, we find quite a large number of carbon nanomaterials companies from USA, Korea, Japan, China, Germany and elsewhere.

And there are special technical sessions on carbon nanomaterials including nanotubes and graphene. I was mostly impressed by Vorbex printed circuit application through a video of demonstrating graphene application in wearable electronics which could survived during washing.
