Notice of Postponing the Nanotechnology Materials and Devices (NMD) Workshop for 2020

Dear NMD Workshop planned attendees, invited speakers, and industry experts;

The NMD workshop scheduled for May 18,19 2020 is postponed due to the coronavirus. The new date for workshop is still to be decided (possibly in May 2021) and will be announced by email and on the NMD website. We are taking every precaution against the coronavirus. We think an in-person workshop is the most beneficial. Thus we decided against having a virtual workshop.

We expect the agenda for the rescheduled workshop will be mostly unchanged, same location, speakers, industry, just the date of the workshop will change. The present agenda is below and at (https://nmdworkshop.org/home/agenda/)

The organizing committee thanks all the speakers, industries, volunteers and attendees who contribute to the workshop.


2020 Nanotechnology Materials and Devices (NMD) Workshop Organizing Committee  


On behalf of the University of Cincinnati, the University of Dayton Research Institute, and the Air Force Research Laboratory, we welcome you to the University of Dayton and the 2020 Nanotechnology Materials and Devices (NMD) Workshop. It is an honor to host this workshop in the evolving field of nanotechnology and its industrialization. We are also very proud to be presenting a lineup of distinguished speakers who will be traveling across the United States and from around the world to describe their latest nanotechnology research. The University of Cincinnati, the Air Force Research Laboratory, and the University of Dayton Research Institute welcome you to the 2020 NMD Workshop.

There will be a welcome dinner held Sunday evening, a networking dinner and poster session on Monday after the presentations, and a tour Tuesday afternoon at the conclusion of the workshop. This website contains information about the workshop, the University of Dayton Research Institute and the greater Dayton area attractions. If you have any questions prior to or during the workshop, please feel free to ask one of the staff or student assistants, or contact the organizers via email (info@nmdworkshop.org). It is our goal to make this workshop as enjoyable and educational as possible. Thank you and enjoy the workshop!


This intensive single-track workshop consists of invited talks and laboratory tours. The workshop covers the synthesis, functionalization, characterization, modeling, post-processing, and application of carbon nanostructured materials and devices. The goal of the workshop is to benchmark the current state of the art and develop plans to make breakthroughs in engineering materials and devices based on nanotechnology. The electronic, thermal, and mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes and spun threads are of particular interest. Applications of nanotechnology and industry needs will be discussed along with strategies for commercializing nanotechnology.

The workshop will provide opportunities to establish cooperative research and to intersect different ideas in order to break down barriers in nanotechnology. There is no individual registration fee. We ask that no confidential information be presented at the workshop. There is no taping or recording of the presentations. To register for the workshop, please complete the online registration form. The workshop is held this year at the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI). The NMD Workshop is internationally attended by the leaders and experts in the nano field and continues to grow.

NMD attendees please consider attending the International Conference On Smart and Nano Materials & Structures, 2020 Dates: 02/06/2020 to 05/06/2020, Indian Institute of Technology (BHU), Varanasi, India
