"The nanotechnology landscape has changed dramatically in the four years since we launched our premiere nanobusiness events, and the most significant change can be best summed up by the theme for this year's event - Nanotech Goes Public," said Nathan Tinker, co-founder of the NanoBusiness Alliance and Conference Chairman. "This year's program is both varied and extremely focused, resulting in three intensive days of education, presentations and networking opportunities."

“This is the first time that so many publicly traded nanotech companies have presented in the same place at the same time”

On opening day, May 17, NanoBusiness 2006 will present its "Investors Forum Day," and is devoted solely to presentations from currently- and soon-to-be public companies, including Veeco, FEI, NanoInk, NanoOpto, Nanophase, Inframat, Combinatrix, Nanodynamics, NuCryst and many more. "This is the first time that so many publicly traded nanotech companies have presented in the same place at the same time," added Nathan Tinker. "NanoBusiness 2006 gives the investment community the best opportunity to evaluate a broad range of public nanotech companies, to assess mid-stage companies likely to be public in the future, and to get a first look at the most credible emerging companies."

The event shifts gears on May 18th to focus on Public Policy and the commercial impact thereof, including a review of regulatory policy, nanotech intellectual property, investment strategy, and environmental policy. Also on Day 2, NanoBusiness 2006 presents a number of parallel conference tracks, including:

-- Nanoelectronics Standards Roadmap Workshop - a day-long workshop for industry, academia and government to develop a roadmap for industry standards in nanoelectronics sponsored by IEEE; for information see

-- "Protecting Your Nano Assets" Legal Tutorial - a half-day seminar and mock trial for corporate, patent and litigation lawyers focused on the legal issues surrounding intellectual property and environment, health and safety in nanotechnology, sponsored by Converging Technologies Bar Association.

NanoBusiness 2006 concludes on its third day with a continuing review of Environmental, Health and Safety issues (including presentations by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health), as well as "Nanotech for Dummies," an introduction for investors, business people and non-specialists to the science and technology of nanotech.

"We've designed the conference program for NanoBusiness 2006 to address the topics and issues that are critical to the key stakeholders in the business of small technology," said Vincent Caprio, Event Director and Vice President of the NanoBusiness Alliance. "We're confident that this year's event will provide our hundreds of attendees with all the information, knowledge and contacts required to move research and developments to commercialization, as well as showcase the ongoing integration of small tech products into the global economy.
