5th International Symposium on Nanotechnology, Occupational Safety and Health
The Fifth International Symposium on Nanotechnology, Occupational and Environmental Health (NanOEH), to be held in Boston, Massachusetts August 9-12, 2011, will provide a high quality of professional presentations to scientists and engineers who wish to promote and communicate the interaction between technical advances and societal, occupational and environmental impacts in the field of nanotechnology research. This international symposium will be the fifth in a series recognized for the high technical quality of its biennial conference. The goal is to bring researchers and practitioners together to share the latest knowledge on nanotechnology-specific risks to occupational health and the environment and assessing how to reduce these potential risks.
