in conjunction with the

Fall 2007 Joint Meeting of the New England Sections of the
American Physical Society and the
American Association of Physics Teachers


The Connecticut Nanotechnology Initiative (CNI) and the Nano-Biotechnology Research Group at the Institute of Materials Science (IMS), University of Connecticut, together with the New England Sections of the American Physical Society (APS) and the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) invites you to 2-day Symposium on "Carbon in the 21st Century". We have invited speakers to address different branches of physics with the common thread of modern day carbon, including carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, and graphene.

The Friday, October 19, 2007, morning section is devoted entirely on carbon nanotubes electrochemical- and transistor-based biosensor technologies, which constitutes one of the focused research topics of the Nano-Biotechnology IMS/UCONN Research Group.

Please note that our Post-banquet Plenary talk will be given by the Nobel Laureate, Prof. Harry Kroto, from Florida State University on "Architecture in Nano-Space"

The CNI/Bio-Nanotechnology registration fee entitles one to also attend the APS/AAPT Conference.
