What’s New for 2015
Two Tracks for Presentations:  As the Nano Conference continues to grow, this year there will be two tracks to guide attendees in choosing sessions to attend. The Fundamental Research Track will focus on new technical advances in characterization, isolation, functionalities and other properties of renewable and sustainable nanomaterials. The Industry Applications Track will focus on manufacturing applications, new markets, and other end user issues.

The conference organizers have extended the Call for Submissions .
Abstracts are due by 1 December 2014.

New Technology and Product Showcase:  Promote your new products or technologies at this special session.  Sponsors and exhibitors will be given priority for available slots.  See the Call for Submissions tab for more details.
Research Perspectives and Business Acumen Seminar:  Designed for academics, this workshop will show how researchers can gain industrial support for their projects.  Led by corporate R&D directors, this workshop will have limited seating. Check the website for additional details.

Plan to Attend
Explore a world of possibilities for opening the door to new markets by unlocking the potential of renewable biomaterials. TAPPI’s tenth International Conference on Nanotechnology for Renewable Materials is the only event that explores how nanotechnology can transform biomaterials into high-value products that expand and transcend traditional forest products portfolios. Bringing together leading researchers, industry experts, government representatives and other stakeholders from around the world, this year’s event promises a unique, multi-disciplinary look at the rewards of using nanotechnology – from the forest to marketed products.  

Whether your focus is new product development, academic study or supplier research, this year’s conference will provide the big picture for unlocking value from this tiny technology.  

Conference Co-Chairs:
Sean Ireland, Verso Paper (USA)
Yaman Boluk, University of Alberta (Canada)
Alain Dufresne, Grenoble Institute of Technology (France)
