Science, Engineering, and Commercialization of Next Generation of Industrial, Electronic and Biomedical Devices
The development of the next generation of industrial components and systems, micro and nanoelectronic devices and systems, and biomedical devices require a new generation and/or adaptation of materials and integration into new structures and devices. The science and technology of the new materials and integration will result in the commercialization of a new generation of industrial components and systems, micr/nanoelectronic devices and systems that will make major impacts in the way and quality of life of people worldwide.
Novel nanoscale processing, characterization, and modeling techniques are being developed to provide enhanced diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions. This symposium will have an interdisciplinary focus, and will cover current challenges in materials science, physics, chemistry, electronics, and biology, critical to the development of advanced micro and nanoscale biomedical devices. This symposium aims to promote interdisciplinary collaboration and discussion among the many groups involved in the development and use of nanoscale materials for biomedical devices, including scientists, engineers, clinicians, and manufacturers. Advances in research and clinical trials will be discussed.
The proposed symposium is relevant to the theme "Our Planet and Its Life: Origins and Futures" because it is an interdisciplinary examination of human biological processes and modern approaches to correct or ameliorate the degradation of human functionalities (e.g. lost of sight and hearing) induced by biological degenerative processes. Early advanced diagnosis and treatment of human diseases and functional conditions is an area of scientific inquiry that will benefit mankind. New and exciting developments in nano-bio research will be discussed.
