This year marked the The Kavli Foundation ACS Presidential Plenary Symposium on Challenges in Nanoscience, held at the 2009 Spring ACS National Meeting and Exposition.
ACS offers a number of resources to review the proceedings, including recordings of selected talks, coverage in C&E News, and ACS Nano editorials and Nano Focus articles including:
Weiss, P. S. Nanoscience Challenges. ACS Nano 2009, 3, 753–754.
Greenberg, A. Integrating Nanoscience into the Classroom: Perspectives on Nanoscience Education Projects. ACS Nano 2009, 3, 762–769.
Wang, Y.; Mirkin, C. A.; Park, S.-J. Nanofabrication Beyond Electronics. ACS Nano 2009, 3, 1049–1056.
This was the first time the ACS meeting included a keynote and plenary session dedicated to the meeting theme. We're interested to hear your feedback on these sessions, and anything else about the nanoscience content of the meeting. Did it meet your expectations? Did the symposia represent a diversity of viewpoints and topical coverage? Were there ample opportunities for professional networking? How has the symposia contributed to your perspective on nanoscience and nanotechnology? What would you like to see more of at future ACS meetings, in terms of nanoscience and nanotechnology content or features?
