The UNC2008 aims to serve as a gathering point for nanotechnology enthusiasts irrespective of their background. Attendees at the UNC2008 will fill the following roles:


Speakers at the leading edge of their respective fields will be invited to present on the latest developments in nanotechnology, and where they believe its future may lie.

Speakers will be chosen not only for their work and research, but also the effectiveness of their delivery to ensure a memorable, entertaining, and enlightening experience for all.


Sponsors provide the much needed financial assistance needed for running the conference. Without the sponsors, there would be no conference.

If you or your business are interested in providing financing or in any other way helping our cause, contact us to receive more information. There's no better way to give back to the burgeoning world of nanotech and inform a whole generation of students of your involvement in the field at the same time.


True to our mission of exposing the undergraduate nano-enthusiast to the world of nanotechnology and vice versa, selected students will be given the opportunity to present their own work at the UNC2008. Gold and silver medals will be awarded to the top oral and poster presentations, judged based on quality of research and relevance to nanotechnology.

Academic and Industry Liaisons

Planning a Conference of this scale can be a trying task for the student organizers on the organizing committee. That's where our Academic and Industry Liaisons come in, offering much needed help and advice on the ins and outs of planning a Nanotechnology Conference, and on the world of nano in general.


Planning and executing such a large event without the help of volunteers would be impossible. We would like to thank all those who have taken and are taking valuable time out from their busy schedules to help us out!

We always need more volunteers! If you'd like to help in any way, sign up for our volunteer mailing list now.
