...in the 7th Annual NanoTechnology for Defense Conference, 6 - 9 April 2009 in Burlingame, CA (right outside of San Francisco). This premier event is sponsored by the tri-service research organizations [Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), Army Research Laboratory (ARL), and the Office of Naval Research (ONR)], as well as the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) and Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The NanoTechnology for Defense Conference is committed to providing a fertile and stimulating forum to enable attendees to discuss opportunities afforded by recent material innovations which maximize control of the nanostructure (nanomaterials), to impact defense and dual-use technologies. This year's conference topics include:

  • Nanomaterials and Technology for Energy Conversion and Storage
  • Nanomaterials and Technology for Electronics and EM Sensing
  • Nanomaterials and Technology for Structural Components
  • The Interface between Nano/Bio and its Potential Utility

New capabilities enabled by the unique performance enhancements of nanostructured materials promise to revolutionize the technology landscape.

This focused conference brings together technical representatives from industry, university, and government to discuss defense technology needs, identify exciting nanostructure-enabled material advancements that are primed for technology development, and forge connections to facilitate and accelerate the development process. Please join your colleagues at this conference on the forefront of the nanotechnology arena.

New for 2009

Only US Citizens or US Green Card holders may attend the conference. The conference will be held at the ITAR & Military Critical level. If you are a member of academia or industry, you must submit a DD2345 certification number. More of this can be found on the Security page.
