- January 30 - February 3, 2006 - NanoTox 2006 (2 pp, 372 K) - This meeting will address the biomedical aspects of nanotechnology and give academic, industry, and government researchers to present the latest findings on the toxicity of nanomaterials.
- March 26 - 30, 2006 - American Chemical Society Meeting, Atlanta, GA - Symposium on Nanotechnology and the Environment, focus on Green Nanotechnology. Sessions include benign synthesis of nanomaterials, nano-enabled green energy, using nanotechnology to prevent pollution in current processes.
- April 20, 2006 - Nanotechnology Applications in Environmental Health: Big Plans for Little Particles, Research Triangle Park, North Carolina - The full-day workshop will convene top nanotechnologists and environmental and ecosystems health researchers to discuss the use of biosensors in environmental monitoring, human exposure research, and ecosystems research.
- December 4-7, 2006 - International Conference on Nanotechnology Occupational and Environmental Health and Safety: Research to Practice, Cincinnati, OH - The Conference is centered on the impact of nanotechnology on occupational and environmental health and safety from two perspectives: (1) promotion and protection of individual safety and health along the life cycle of nano-based products and (2) use of emerging technology in prevention and detection/treatment of occupational and environmental diseases.
Research Workshops and Symposia
- May 30-31, 2006 - Public Participation in Nanotechology & Nanoscale Science (PDF) (1 pp, 64 K) - This workshop will begin a dialogue on how the public can be engaged in nanotechnology-related issues and decisions. Expert speakers will provide an overview of best practices in public participation and present key issues for nanotechnology-related public participation. Participants will share and explore ideas and perspectives on how to productively engage the public in nanotechnology policies and decisions.
