NanoEEB – International Workshop on Nanotechnology to be held by St. Aloysius College (Autonomous), Mangalore

When physicist Richard Feynman used the term ‘nano-technology’ in 1959 to describe the process of manipulating individual atoms and molecules to build and operate another proportionally smaller set, he could not have envisaged the importance nanotechnology would attain. Today, nanotechnology is heralded as one of the fastest developing technologies that will redesign the future of many other technologies, products and markets. There is an increasing realization amongst the policy makers and scientific fraternity that challenges pertaining to clean energy, environment and biology can be specifically answered through the applications of nanotechnology. Immense research is being done along these directions in laboratories the world over. Concerns about the toxicity and environmental impact of nanomaterials and their potential effects on global economics, have also opened up intense debate.

At this juncture, there is a need to provide a forum to pass on the knowledge accumulated by scientists in international laboratories to young students, researchers and the teaching fraternity in the form of an international workshop. This conference would not only provide participants a platform to present their work, but also serve for exchange of ideas with leading experts in the field and constitute the formation of a global research network. Keeping this goal in mind, St. Aloysius College (Autonomous), an institution with a 130-year old history and pioneer in basic and applied sciences education and research in the region, proposes to organize an international workshop on the applications of nanotechnology in the fields of energy, environment and biology.
