November 17 Half-Day Fall Symposium: Biomimetic Nanotechnology

Join us for our 11th Annual Half Day Fall Symposium on Biomimetic Nanotechnology

Tuesday Nov 17, 2015
Registration opens: 12:00 PM
Conference: 1:00 PM – 4:30 PM
Texas Instruments (TI) Auditorium E-1
2900 Semiconductor Drive
Santa Clara, CA


Everywhere in nature, nanoscale features enable macro-scale phenomena.
• How is it that geckos can cling to smooth vertical surfaces and never lose their grip?
• What makes butterfly wings iridescent?
• How do chameleons change their hue?
• What keeps lily pads dry in a rainstorm?
The answer is specialized nanostructures!
Come on Nov. 17 and learn about fascinating examples of biomimicry on the nanoscale.

The symposium will also provide a forum for networking and the exchange of information among local academics, students, scientists, engineers, early stage venture capitalists and entrepreneurs who share an interest in nanotechnology and its biomimetic applications.
