The 2019 KY Nano+AM Symposium is an annual event dedicated to bring together researchers/users in the advanced manufacturing fields of additive manufacturing and micro/nanotechnology to discuss new findings, share results, showcase capabilities, generate ideas, debate the future, and network with one another. The 2019 Nano/AM Symposium is open to all scientists, engineers, and students from a variety of disciplines including microtechnology, nanotechnology, 3D printing, additive manufacturing, healthcare, energy, advanced materials, MEMS, biotechnology, commercial products, defense, and nano-education. The goal of the symposium is to strengthen the collaboration between industry and academia in the above targeted areas. Participants will hear exciting presentations about the latest nano/AM technologies, learn about existing state-of-the-art core facilities available to the public, and discuss ways that industry can access a wide variety of academic resources, including their most valuable resource – creative, hard-working students. The 3-day symposium agenda will consist of a workshop day on AM and Nanotechnology, followed by a 2 day conference with parallel sessions for both industry and academia, several joint keynote presentations, poster presentations, sponsorship opportunities, food and refreshments, core facility tours, and a valuable evening networking reception.
Abstracts must be submitted by May 31, 2019

KY Multi-scale Manufacturing and Nano Integration Node
This webinar will focus on quality control in the manufacturing process and builds on the National Nanotechnology Initiative’s Technology Pathways workshop held in November 2017. Webinar panelists will engage in a dialogue about the importance of and issues surrounding quality control in the production of nanomaterials. NNCO Director, Dr. Lisa Friedersdorf, will moderate the discussion.
Panelists will open the webinar with a brief overview of their experiences, successes, and challenges in ensuring the quality of manufactured nanomaterials. These remarks will be followed by a Q&A period. Questions for the panelists can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org from now through the end of the webinar at 11:30 AM on September 19, 2018.
