CAMP Annual Technical Meeting
CAMP's Annual Technical Meeting was held May 19 - 21, 2010, at the Canandaigua Inn on the Lake in Canandaigua, 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 Dr. Robert Finocchiaro (Technical Director of Corporate Research and Development Services, 3M) and Dr. Volker Schaedler (Director of BASF Innovation and Technology, North America). Dr. Finocchiaro's keynote address was called "3M Innovation Model: Uncommon Connections, Innovative Solutions." The title of the keynote address presented by Dr. Schaedler was "The Ten Faces of Innovation."
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. Santokh Badesha (a Xerox Fellow at the Xerox Corporation and Chair of CAMP's Industrial Advisory Board) to the first, second, and third place winners of each category. Details of the meeting will be included in CAMP's Annual Report (September 2010) Newsletter.
