From: JSTRAUGHN**At_Symbol_Here**fpm.wisc.edu Subject: New Conference on NANO-material safety at UW Date: March 22, 2007 6:27:27 PM EDT We are planning a conference/work-shop on nano-material safety issues; best practices in use, manufacture, detection and disposal of nano-materials of all kinds. This is mostly aimed at academic scale applications. For more information see http://www2.fpm.wisc.edu/safety/nano Come prepared to roll up your sleeves and actively participate in a workshop designed to focus on health and safety practices that can be used NOW while research, technology, guidelines and regulations are being developed. This workshop will feature a mix of nanotech experts and practitioners from select universities and government organizations. Featured speakers include Dr. Andrew Maynard of the Woodrow Wilson Institute and Dr. Gurumurthy Ramachandran from the University of Minnesota. Share your answers to questions such as: Are engineered nanomaterials handled or created on your campus? How do you know? What health and safety precautions do you have in place for working with nanoscale materials? What health and safety precautions do others have in place? How do you manage and dispose of nano-waste? What is the status of NIOSH’s nano initiative? These and other questions will be discussed in a workshop designed to bring together the collective knowledge and experiences of presenters and attendees. If your organization has written nanosafety programs or elements of programs, please consider submitting these prior to the workshop so that a compilation of current practices can be shared. Call (608) 265-5000 for more details. WHEN: May 20-22, 2007 WHERE: University of Wisconsin — Madison Campus Engineering Centers Bldg, 1550 Engineering Drive REGISTRATION: $90.00 Early Registration $120.00 after April 20, 2007 Call (608) 265-5000 for conference and registration questions.
