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 developing nanoscience and nanotechnology. Most recently in 2007, thirty one researchers from Korea and the United States gathered at Honolulu, HI, 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 the nanotechnology arena.

Under the auspices of the Ministry of Education, Science & Technology (MEST) of Korea and National Science Foundation (NSF)USA, and also with efforts from Carnegie Mellon University, Korea Institute of Science & Technology Information (KISTI), Korea-U.S. Science Cooperation Center (KUSCO), and Korea Technology Research Society (KoNTRS), this Korea-U.S. Nanoforum is marking its 5th anniversary on April 17, 2008 at Shilla Hotel, Jeju-do, Korea. About 30 scientific lectures will be given on the emerging area of Nano-biotechnology focusing on novel nano-biomaterials, instrumentation technologies, and integrated systems for overcoming critical challenges in biomedicine and delivery of healthcare, as well as their environment, health & safety (EHS) toxicity issues.

We believe that this 5th Korea-U.S. Nanoforum will provide you with a great opportunity to accelerate the exchange of information on recent research achievements and trends of nano-biotechnologyboth 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.
