ITEM:1

TITLE: Dr. Martin Moskovits, Professor of Chemistry and Dean of Science, University of California, Santa Barbara
SUBJECT: #73 Nanotechnology: Frontiers in Integration
SYNOPSIS: As one of the early researchers in what has become known as "nano technology", Dr. Martin Moskovits can paint a broad picture of Canada's position in this emerging and exciting field. Formerly with the University of Toronto and now the Dean of Science at the University of Calfornia Santa Barbara, Martin recently participated in a daylong workshop in Edmonton sponsored by the National Institute for Nanotechnology.

ITEM:2

TITLE: Dr. Robert Wolkow, Principal Research Officer, Steacie Institute for Molecular Sciences, National Research Council, Ottawa
SUBJECT: #73 Nanotechnology: Frontiers in Integration
SYNOPSIS: There's more to nano science than self assembling "wires" from molecules and Dr. Robert Wolkow urges his fellow researchers to keep the bigger picture in mind while exploring what the new tiny world of nanotechnology has to offer. A preeminent scientist with the Steacie Institute for Molecular Sciences in Ottawa, Robert offered this "reality check" at the NINT workshop in Edmonton titled "Frontiers in Integration".

ITEM:3

TITLE: Dr. Staf Borghs, Professor, Leuven University and Research, Leuven Microelectronics Centre, Belgium
SUBJECT: #73 Nanotechnology: Frontiers in Integration
SYNOPSIS: When it comes to marrying microelectronics to the even tinier world of nanotechnology, researchers may feel like they're putting a glass slipper on an elephant's toe. Dr. Staph Borghs of Leuven University in Belgium cautions material behaves much differently at the nanoscale and it's not just a case of scaling down technologies . He was speaking recently at the NINT workshop on integrating nanotechnology with present systems.
