The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA), together with the University of Maryland (UMD) and the Naval Research Lab (NRL), have announced a two day workshop exploring Nanobiotechnology for Defense Applications on Nov. 13-14, 2007 at the University of Maryland's Jeong H. Kim Engineering Building Kay Boardroom. This interdisciplinary workshop will bring together individuals from academia, government, and industry to discuss the latest developments in nanobiotechnolgy. The workshop will feature plenary presentations from esteemed scientists on a broad range of topics including smart materials, autonomous systems, sensors/actuators, bioinspired energy, and bio-device interface. The first day of the workshop will feature a keynote luncheon on NanoMedicine, as well as poster presentations and reception.

Participating institutions include UMD, NRL, IARPA, Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC), Naval Medical Research Center (NMRC), Department of Defense (DoD), and the Intelligence Community.
