Abstract

In truth, nanotechnology is much more than what will be discussed here. When new properties of matter are discovered and exploited, the applications are almost limitless. That is why nanotechnology is called a "platform" technology: it readily merges and converges with other technologies and could change how we do just about everything. NanoFrontiers participants focused on the key areas where they expect nanotechnology to have big impacts soon. The effects of nanotechnology on many other areas - such as textiles, paper production, food manufacturing and agriculture - wer not explored as deeply. Advances in computing and electronics are humming along, but these applications of nanotechnology were also not chosen as a focus of this meeting.
