*indicates events with video archive and/or extended abstracts

August 22-26, 2010
Nano 2010
Clemson University, South Carolina
Co-Sponsored by UC CEIN
While the production of nanomaterials is undergoing exponential growth, their biological effects and environmental fate and behavior are relatively unknown.  The interdisciplinary mix of environmental scientists, toxicologists, material scientists, and engineers should provide for a robust discussion in a creative atmosphere. This meeting is the fifth annual international meeting on this topic following the success of previous meetings held in the United Kingdom and, most recently, Nano 2009 held in Vienna.

May 11-13, 2010  
ICEIN 2010: International Conference on the Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology
The second annual International Conference on the Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology held in Los Angeles, CA, May 11 to 13, 2010 on the University of California Los Angeles campus.  ICEIN is co-sponsored by the Center for the Environmental Implications of NanoTechnology (CEINT) headquartered at Duke University, the University of California Center for the Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology (UC CEIN) headquartered at UCLA, and the international partners of CEINT and UC CEIN.
