NanoFlorida 2018

NanoFlorida 2018


NIMET is proud to sponsor the NanoFlorida 2018 Conference, which is scheduled to take place the weekend of October 6-7 at Florida Institute of Technology. Students and faculty involved in nanotechnology research from across the state will gather to discuss and share their latest results. Focus topics for the meeting include:

  • Nanotechnology for Materials and Devices
  • Nanotechnology for Energy and the Environment
  • Nanotechnology for Medicine
  • Nanotechnology for Agriculture
  • Nanotechnology for Space Exploration
  • Nanotechnology Education

Industrial sponsors will also be on hand to meet students and discuss their career opportunities in nanotechnology. In fact, for the first time there will be a pre-conference Nanotechnology Career Expo on October 5th.

This year NIMET and the National Science Foundation (NSF) have teamed up to provide financial support for UF students and postdocs to participate in NanoFlorida 2018.

Important Dates and Information:

  • All UF students must submit abstracts and register by September 7th (submission page)
    • Earlier submission will increase your chances of getting free registration
  • NIMET will cover the cost of group transportation, one night in a to-be-determined hotel near the venue, and poster printing.
  • However, to be considered for NIMET sponsorship, all students must:
  • There will be a few meetings between the UF students that submit an abstract and the NIMET Director in order to practice and improve poster and presentation content and delivery.
  • Templates for both NanoFlorida Poster Template and NanoFlorida Slide Template are available for download.

This potentially free event will be a great opportunity for students to network with other nanotech researchers, develop their presentation skills, and learn about other leading nanotech research going on nearby.

Who Should Consider Attending

  • Student researchers wishing to present their accomplishments in a low-stress environment. Students have the option of giving a talk or presenting a poster,
  • Faculty interested in meeting colleagues from around Florida to build professional relationships and research collaborations,
  • Industry scientists and engineers with a desire to recruit the best students for nanotechnology-related careers, co-ops, and internships,
  • Faculty who currently teach or want to teach nanotechnology courses, and
  • Students who want to learn more about nanotechnology, meet peers who share this interest, and talk with representatives of scientific and engineering companies
