The NISE Net is sponsoring a bunch of professional development opportunities at the upcoming Materials Research Society Spring Meeting in San Francisco, April 5 - 9. Admission is included in meeting registration for all of these workshops, no additional registration is required.
Here are the workshops:
(New!) Technical Poster Design Seminar
Richard Souza, who is leading the Materials Research Society's involvement in the NISE Network, forwarded me this announcement about a small grant opportunity open to our partners. There's more information below, but please note that the application due date is April 1. The grant is for organizing outreach activities in connection with the release of Making Stuff, a PBS tv series on materials science. One of the four episodes is focused on nanotechnology, and nano will be a common thread throughout the segments.
Thanks, everyone, for your great comments to the first RWN post! Keep 'em coming. I'll respond there and in future posts. The question for today is: why does nano matter?
