CAMP's Annual Technical Meeting
CAMP’s Annual Technical Meeting was held May 18 - 20, 2011, at the Holiday Inn in Albany, New York. The objective of this meeting was to provide a forum for an exchange of ideas and information between university and industry researchers involved in fine particle processing and nanotechnology and related colloid and surface aspects as well as applications. It included representatives of Industry, University, and New York State Economic Development Organizations.
The keynote speakers were Congressman Paul Tonko and George Gomba (VP for Unit Process Development, Semiconductor Research & Development Center, IBM). Congressman Tonko’s keynote address emphasized the importance of a good education for all levels of learning (Pre-K – Graduate School). The title of the keynote address presented by VP Gomba, was “Chip Technology is Changing the World.”
This successful meeting was well attended and had many excellent poster presentations on CAMP research. The posters were judged in three categories: most attractive, most creative, and best overall. Certificates and ribbons were presented by Dr. Robert Villetto (Process Engineering Manager, Albany Nanotech, IBM Corporation) to the first, second, and third place winners of each category. The judges were Dr. Ionel Halaciuga of Technic Inc., Dr. Sung Yeun Choi of BASF, Kris Driesen of Umicore, and Meghan Molloy of BASF. The winners are listed.
