International Conference on the
Environmental Implications of NanoTechnology
The first annual International Conference on the Environmental Implications of NanoTechnology will be held in Washington, D.C. September 9-10, 2009 at Howard University. ICEIN is co-sponsored by the Center for the Environmental Implications of NanoTechnology (CEINT) headquartered at Duke University, the University of California Center for the Environmental Implications of NanoTechnology (UC CEIN) headquartered at UCLA and the international partners of CEINT and UC CEIN.
This conference brings together leading researchers from around the world working on nanotechnology risk assessment, nanotoxicology, ecosystem impacts, transport and transformation of nanomaterials, and nanomaterial detection.
The first two days of the conference (Sept 9-10) are open to the general scientific community and will feature keynote presentations from leading researchers, poster sessions, and sessions in the following six areas:
• Fate, transport, and transformations
• Ecology and ecosystem response
• Nanomaterials and isolation/detection methods
• Natural nanomaterials and nanobiogeochemistry
• Risk assessment, modeling, LCA, and social issues
The afternoon of day two of the conference will be dedicated to working panels discussing the development of protocols for environmental nanotechnology research.
