Winners of this award will be determined through an expert peer review process consisting of academia, government, corporate and investment experts in nanotechnology and its related fields. The Nanotechnology Excellence Awards program consists of two tracks, the first for research papers and the second for intellectual property (IP) and early stage companies. For each track, awards will be presented for achievements in four distinct categories including electronics and microsystems, life science and medicine, materials and technology, and consumer and energy.
The Nanotech 2006 show is scheduled for May 7-11 at the Hynes Convention Center The John B. Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Center located in Boston's Back Bay has 193,000 square feet (0 m) of exhibit space and can accommodate up to four concurrent events. in Boston and will feature more than 300 exhibitors and attract more than 3,000 attendees.
