In accordance to the agreements made during the fifth meeting of the Korea-U.S. Joint Committee on Scientific and Technological Cooperation in Seoul on October 30-31, 2002, Korea-U.S. Nanoforum is being held annually since 2003 for the mutual benefits of developing nanoscience and nanotechnology. Most recently in 2005, about 50 nano researchers from Korea and the United States gathered at Los Angeles to build up a collaborative network among research communities and government agencies of both sides as well as to exchange information and find opportunities for cooperation in nanotechnology arena.

  Under the auspices of the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) of Korea and National Science Foundation (NSF)  of USA and with the efforts of Carnegie Mellon University, Korea Institute of Science & Technology Information (KISTI), Korea Technology Research Society (KoNTRS), and Nano Technology Research Association (NTRA), this Korea-U.S. Nanoforum is marking its 3rd anniversary on April 3, 2006 at Tower Hotel in Seoul. About 30 scientific lectures will be given focusing primarily on Nano Devices & Systems and Nano Implications of Environmental, Health and Safety.

  We believe that the 3rd Korea-U.S. Nanoforum will provide you with a great opportunity to accelerate the exchange of information on recent research achievements and trends of nanoscience and nanotechnology both in Korea and the United States. On behalf of all advisory committee members in Korea and the United States, we deeply appreciate all participants and speakers for their support and cooperation for the success of this forum.
