The California Nanosystems Institute (CNSI) at UC Santa Barbara invites educators to a workshop on Nanotechnology and Society. The event will be co-sponsored by the NSF Center for Nanotechnology in Society (CNS-UCSB).
There has been tremendous interest in the innovations of nanoscience and technology, and the potential implications for our lives. Thus, nanotechnology can serve as an exciting and integrative academic topic that highlights the interplay of discovery, invention, economics, politics and commercial applications. The broad scope and direct societal impacts of this theme may be of great interest to a diverse range of students and instructors from a broad range of social science and science disciplines.
