Inaugural meeting of the Oregon Section Chapter of the IEEE Nanotechnology Council

Date: Friday, December 6

Time: 1:00-5:30 pm

Location: Portland State University, EB-103, Engineering Building, 1930 SW 4th Ave, Portland, OR 97201

This is the kick-off meeting of the new IEEE Nanotechnology Council Chapter. After introductions, elections for chapter officers will be discussed.

This will followed by a workshop featuring three distinguished lecturers.

John Yeow, University of Waterloo: "Highly Miniaturized Biomedical Imaging Devices"

John T. W. Yeow is currently a Professor in the Department of Systems Design Engineering at University of Waterloo, Waterloo, ON, Canada. His current research interests are in the field of developing miniaturized biomedical instruments.

Jean-Pierre Leburton, University of Illinois Urbana Champaign: "2D Nano-Electronic Materials for Bio-sensing"

Professor Leburton is the G. Stillman Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is involved with research in nanostructures modeling and in quantum device simulation. His present research interest encompasses non-linear transport in quantum wires and carbon nanotubes, and molecular and bio-nanoelectronics. He is author and co-author of more than 300 technical papers in international journals and books, and served in numerous conferences committees.

Supriyo Bandyopadhyay, Virginia Commonwealth University: "Straintronics: Boolean and Non-Boolean Computing with Tiny Nanomagnets Switched with Electrically Generated Mechanical Strain"

Supriyo Bandyopadhyay is Commonwealth Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Commonwealth University where he directs the Quantum Device Laboratory. Research in the laboratory has been frequently featured in national and international media (newspapers, internet blogs, magazines, journals such as Nature and Nanotechnology, and internet news portals).
