Second annual Nanopolicy Conference

Faces of Risk: Nanopolicy and the Agenda for Safety
and Society

November 30, 2007
1 to 5:30 p.m.
National Press Club
Washington, D.C.

From pop culture buzzword to potentially revolutionary technology, “nano” promises to impact every aspect of human society.  To help ensure that these changes confer maximum benefit while posing minimum risk, a robust dialogue--inclusive of diverse civil society, governmental and business participants--is necessary to enlighten policy formation.

Providing a platform for this discourse, the Center on Nanotechnology and Society at Chicago-Kent College of Law, Illinois Institute of Technology, is hosting its second annual Nanopolicy Conference in Washington, D.C., featuring:

  • Dr. Carol Henry of the American Chemistry Council;
  • David Rejeski of the Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies at the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars;
  • Dr. Charles Rubin of Duquesne University and frequent contributor to The New Atlantis;
  • Dr. Jonathan Moreno of University of Pennsylvania and senior fellow at the Center for American Progress;
  • Margaret Glass of the National Science Foundation-funded Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Net);
  • Dr. Nigel M. de S. Cameron of Illinois Institute of Technology and Nano & Society director;
  • Michele Mekel of Drake University School of Law and Nano & Society fellow; and
  • Other leading nano experts from policy, law, business and the social sciences.
