In 2018, the Northeast Region of the ACS is offering a focused, specialized regional meeting on “Nanomaterials: Applications and Environmental Impacts”.  The format is similar in structure to the Gordon Research Conferences whereby a group of renowned scientists (early- to mid-career and senior investigators, from academia and industry) working on a particular subject meet to exchange ideas and research findings.  Undergraduate and graduate students are most welcome to participate (in a poster session) and interact with these scientists and establish valuable connections and possible career opportunities. There will also be a funding opportunities workshop.

The conference is sponsored by the Northern New York local ACS section, and is supported by the national and regional ACS. This topical regional meeting will be held at Lake Placid in the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York.

Due to their versatile properties, nanomaterials are expected to revolutionize our approaches to common problems. However, while nanotechnology has direct beneficial applications for medicine and the environment, it may have unintended effects that can adversely impact the human body and the natural ecosystem. This meeting will bring together scientists from different backgrounds to discuss new advances in the field of nanotechnology and examine the implications of nanomaterials on our health and on the environmental.
