Sunday, May 14, 2017, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm, Gaylord National Convention Center, Washington, DC

Technology Focus

This fast-paced survey workshop provides an overview of the full range of structured materials with particular focus on their current and potential industrial applications in fields as diverse as advanced engineering materials, nanomedicine, drug and gene delivery, imaging and sensors, energy generation and storage materials, catalysts, foods and personal care products.

Who Should Attend?

This workshop would be appropriate for any attendees at the TechConnect World Innovation Conference, the Nanotech2016 conference, or the National SBIR/STTR event who wish to broaden their knowledge of new materials, to discover areas of synergy with their own work, and learn about industrial applications.

Workshop Content

Topics will include:
  • Self assembled materials: polymers, proteins, bio-inspired materials
  • Structured fluids: emulsions and colloids
  • Inorganic and metallic nanoparticles
  • Carbon structures: nanotubes and graphene
  • Nanocomposites and engineering materials
  • Structured surfaces
  • A brief overview of characterization methods
  • Computer modeling and multiscale simulation of structured materials and fluids

For each topic, references and recommended reading list will be provided, along with advice on sessions to attend at the TechConnect World Innovation Conference to learn more and make contacts with the innovators who are designing, creating, characterizing and commercializing these materials for the 21st Century.
