This special symposium is focused on advancing the goal of the National Nanotechnology Initiative on Nanotechnology Knowledge Infrastructure: Enabling National Leadership in Sustainable Design, which is to provide a community-based, solutions-oriented knowledge infrastructure to accelerate nanotechnology discovery and innovation.

This initiative includes activities from the following collaborating agencies: Consumer Product Safety Commission, Department of Defense, Environmental Protection Agency, Food and Drug Administration, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, National Institutes of Health, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, National Institute of Standards and Technology, National Science Foundation, and Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

You are invited to submit your abstract for presentation in the following topic areas:

Topics & Application Areas

  • Federal programs and resources for informatics and knowledge management
  • Case studies, frameworks, and practices on moving knowledge from laboratory to market
  • Criteria for evaluating data relevance and reliability
  • Standards and procedures for data management
  • Interoperable systems to enable best-practice curation, organization, transfer, and sharing of data
  • Theoretical, computational, statistical, and visualization tools to plan, execute, and analyze experiments
  • Predictive theoretical and computational tools.
  • Expansion of data pattern recognition, structure-property correlation, and data-based prediction capabilities
  • Models that combine first-principles concepts and link theory and experimental results
  • Dynamic mechanisms for sharing, combining, and refining models
  • Creation of a nanotechnology cyber toolbox of operationalized models
  • Educational opportunities to integrate the cyber toolbox into the fabric of science and industry.

Technical Abstract Submission
