The InterNanotech Community of Practice in computational and experimental nanotechnology launches next week at the Pacific Rim Conference in Nanoscience, Broome, Australia. The conference is chaired by Professor Nick Quirke, Imperial College London, includes contributions from leading researchers in the Pacific Region, in addition to invited speakers from Europe and the USA, and contains a significant amount of advanced computational chemistry applied to nanotech research problems.
All lectures including slides and audio from the conference will be available through the Web site located at http://nanotech.colayer.net/.
This community project is an international, interdisciplinary community for scientists working in research areas of relevance to nanoscience and nanotechnology.
The activities of the community support the rapid exchange of new research results and discussion in experimental and computational nanoscience. Members can attend regular Virtual Seminar sessions to keep up with research news and results from leading experts in the field.
Oversight, advice and guidance of the scientific program is provided by a Scientific Advisory Board, chaired by Prof. Nick Quirke of Imperial College London.
Running November 2004: Modelling of Membranes and Ion Channels, chaired by Richard Pastor, FDA CBER, USA
Running in 2005: International Conference in Experimental & Computational Nanoscience, 2005
