Special Symposium

This symposium will feature innovative applications-focused research and development in the following focus areas:

Nanoparticles in Imaging Technologies
Non-invasive imaging technologies for the diagnosis of disease typically involve the administration of contrast or signal enhancement agents that facilitate the visualization of organs or the state of a particular disease. Nanotechnology, particularly the development of nanoparticle-based agents, has had a tremendous impact in the design of targeted and specific nanoagents with the potential of homing on a particular area and interrogating for normal or disease processes. Submissions are invited on nanoparticle technologies for the visualization at the molecular or cellular level using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), optical/fluorescent imaging, X-ray computed tomography (X-ray CT), ultrasound and positron emission tomography (PET), among others.

Clinical/Health Applications
One of the most significant impacts of the nanotechnology revolution is seen in the area of biomolecular analysis, which, as predicted by Feyman, has reached new levels of sensitivity, precision and resolution due to advances in the physical sciences. Submissions are invited on the development of biosensors for clinical and health applications. These may include point of care diagnostics, lab-on-a-chip integration, novel functionalization schemes, and the development of nano-neural interfaces.

Defense Applications
Nanoscale sensing approaches have significant potential for the detection of for threat agents including biological, chemical, and radiological materials. Submissions in this topic area may also address sample formats and novel analytical schemes.

Environmental Applications
There is an increasing demand for sensors to assess and monitor environmental parameters that affect human health including pollutants and pathogens such as viruses and bacteria. Developments in sensor technology are critical for measuring air and water quality and for assessment during remediation efforts. Papers describing novel approaches for sensing in a variety of environmental formats are invited.

Novel approaches and instrumentation
Fundamental to all applications areas are core developments in materials and techniques for nanoscale sensing. Submissions are invited on novel materials, technologies and instrumentation.
