For over nine years, the IIN has organized the annual International Institute for Nanotechnology Symposium. This all day conference features presentations by renowned nanotechnology researchers from around the world, and provides an excellent venue to enhance interactions and encourage collaborations. Over the years, the symposium has become so popular that it was necessary to move the venue off campus (growing from ~350 attendees in 2005 to over 750 attendees in 2013).
This year the IIN Symposium will be held on Thursday, October 9, 2014 in the Grand Ballroom of the Hilton Orrington Hotel in Evanston, IL and will feature the following distinguished speakers:
Attendance is offered free of charge due to the generous support from our sponsors, but space is limited and registration is required - Register today!
Each year at the IIN Symposium, a select group of graduate students and postdoctoral associates are recognized for their outstanding contributions to the field.
