Micro nano breakthrough conference planned for Portland, Oregon

PORTLAND, Ore.- A diverse group of people interested in the evolving growth of nanoscience and microtechnology will participate in the Micro Nano Breakthrough Conference 2004 scheduled for July 28-29 at the Sheraton Portland Airport.

This first-ever conference is designed to explore the difficult challenges within the Lilliputian world of nano- and microtechnology, as well as the promising business opportunities for rapidly developing and commercializing the smallest man-made technology in the world.

The conference is sponsored by the Microproducts Breakthrough Institute, which is a collaboration of Oregon State University and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Wash., and is a member of the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute, also known as ONAMI.

"Nearly every fundamental technology will be impacted by nano- and microtechnology in years to come," said Landis Kannberg, technical network leader for energy with PNNL and co-director of the Microproducts Breakthrough Institute. "We're merging leaders from all facets of the micro nano fields to explore the possibilities these emerging technologies will bring."

Conference-goers will be encouraged to engage in working groups, participate in roundtable discussions, share ideas and network with fellow industry and technology leaders. "We expect a wide range of developers, researchers, and business and government leaders to attend the conference to learn more about the exciting progress being made," said Kevin Drost, a professor of mechanical engineering at OSU and co-director of the Microproducts Breakthrough Institute.
