Successful Symposium at Fall 2010 MRS meeting

Symposium Y, Nanomaterials Integration for Electronics, Energy, and Sensing, was held at the Fall Annual Meeting of the Materials Research Society, November 29-December 3, 2010, in Boston, MA. The Symposium addressed the area of the integration of nanomaterials into architectures and systems extending from the nanoscale to the microscale and beyond. Nanomaterials integration is the central theme of CINT and the Symposium topics were of interest to CINT users. The Symposium was organized by Tom Picraux (CINT chief scientist), Mark Reed (Yale University), James Hannon (IBM Research Yorktown Heights), and Wim C. Sinke (ECN Solar Energy, The Netherlands). The Nanomaterials Integration Symposium had 260 presentations, including 12 invited speakers, 9 oral sessions and 4 poster sessions. It received the largest number of abstract submissions of the 50 symposia being held at this Fall's MRS Meeting.

Theory and Simulation of Nano-scale Materials Workshop

CINT hosted the Theory and Simulation of Nano-scale Materials Workshop, October 14-15, 2010, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The primary aim of the workshop was to bring together scientists from the five DEO Office of Science Nanoscale Science Research Centers to discuss recent developments in the theory and simulations of nanomaterias. The workshop organizer was Gary Grest at
