|Me, Candace and Chuck on the
ferry to Suomenlinna
Just a quick news item to pass along. The call for papers is now open for the 5th International Symposium on Nanotechnology, Occupational and Environmental Health, being held in Boston next August. I went to last year’s meeting in Helsinki, Finland and was mightily impressed at the quality and depth of the speaker line-up. Plus, I got to add a couple more countries–Finland and Estonia–to my growing list of places visited. The photo shows me, next year’s co-organizer Candace Tsai and NIOSH’s Chuck Geraci on a ferry to the island of Suomenlinna at the end of the conference. Oh and check out the photo on the conference landing page. Who is that on the left?
Boston may not be as exotic as Finland but it’ll strain U.S. attendees’ travel budgets less and will probably be warmer. (I learned last year that autumn comes early to the northlands.) If you are interested in anything related to nanotechnology environment, health and safety research, this meeting is not to be missed.
