NNCI Events

This listing includes information on events (seminars, workshops, symposia, and other activities) within the NNCI which are open to the entire research community. The list is maintained by the NNCI Coordinating Office to encourage collaboration among the sites and promotion of these events which provide training and education of staff, students, and research users. In addition, the Staff Exchange Program is a mechanism for travel support specifically to allow NNCI staff to attend events at other sites.


Molecular Analysis Facility Characterization Workshop, August 25-26 2022
The Molecular Analysis Facility (MAF) at the University of Washington is hosting a two-day virtual workshop August 25-26 (9:30 AM-12:30 PM, PDT). Workshop attendees will learn the nuts and bolts of key characterization tools available at the MAF. Lectures are designed to give attendees a basic understanding of characterization techniques and their applications using real-world examples from bioengineering, clean energy, geology, and other fields. Registration required.

NNCI Microelectronics/Semiconductor Research Community Virtual Workshop, September 8-9, 2022
In light of recent efforts of the federal government to bolster semiconductor manufacturing in the US under the auspices of the CHIPS Act, NNCI is organizing a two-day online workshop to examine how NNCI can interact with the various components of the CHIPS initiative. Tentatively, we envision four sessions consisting of invited talks by leading researchers in academia and industry focused on academic research infrastructure, workforce development, manufacturing, and semiconductor R&D. 
Registration Open Now.

Webinar: TBD
Tony Low, Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Minnesota

NNCI Nano+Additive Manufacturing Summit, University of Louisville, August 9-10, 2022
This is an annual event dedicated to bringing together researchers in the advanced manufacturing fields of additive manufacturing and micro/nanotechnology to discuss new findings, share results, showcase capabilities, generate ideas, debate the future, and network with one another. The Nano/AM Summit is open to all scientists, engineers, students and industry partners from a variety of disciplines/areas including microtechnology, nanotechnology, 3D printing, additive manufacturing, healthcare, energy, advanced materials, MEMS, biotechnology, commercial products, defense, and nano-education. The goal of the summit is to strengthen the collaboration between industry and academia in the above targeted areas. 

NNCI Nano-IoT Research Community Symposium, Cornell University, August 16, 2022
Cornell NanoScale Science and Technology Facility (CNF) will host the 2022 Nano-IoT Research Community Symposium.  The purpose of the symposium is to inform and exchange ideas between NNCI users and interested researchers in Nanoscale Internet-of-Things (Nano-IoT) research. This hybrid event will feature invited speakers that will highlight emerging research areas in Nano-IoT followed by center director overviews showcasing the work performed at their individual NNCI sites. An in-person only panel discussion will be held to define future Nano-IoT research directions.  Registration Schedule and Accommodations
