About NNT 2019

NNT 2019, the 18th International Conference on Nanoimprint and Nanoprint Technologies, the world’s leading symposium on nanoimprint and nanoprint, will take place October 14-16, 2019, at The Boston Seaport Hotel, Boston Massachusetts, USA.

NNT2019 is focused on Next Generation Technologies, Products and Manufacturing Processes and is structured with both the research and commercial communities in mind. The meeting will feature invited and contributed lectures on the latest developments in imprint technology. A series of plenary lectures from leading researchers within and external to the imprint community will focus on new and emerging areas in which imprint technology can expand and have significant commercial and scientific impact, including metamaterials, augmented and virtual reality, energy generation and storage, intelligent nanoscale devices and the life sciences. The conference will also offer a unique nanoimprint ecosystem session and roundtable discussion in which providers of tools, masters, materials and open access research and process development facilities will converge in a single session to provide a comprehensive look at potential commercialization paths for bringing product concepts from the laboratory to manufacturing. NNT 2019 will feature an extensive poster session describing recent science and technology advances as well as vendor exhibits from companies and institutes spanning the NIL ecosystem. An online portal for pre scheduling 1:1 meetings among conference participants, presenters in the ecosystem sessions and/or vendors will be provided to maximize opportunities for relationship building. Additional opportunities for networking and informal socializing will occur on a dinner cruise on the Boston Harbor.

An optional post-conference tour to the $US 25 million Advanced Print and Roll-to-Roll Manufacturing Demonstration Facility at the University of Massachusetts Amherst will be arranged for those wishing to see facilities for implementation of the latest development in continuous imprinting technology and complementary processes for device integration and manufacturing.

NIL Ecosystem

Call for Abstracts – NIL Ecosystem Session

NNT2019 will offer a unique nanoimprint ecosystem session with full length technical talks and a closing roundtable discussion in which providers of tools, masters, materials and open access research and process development facilities will converge in a single session to deliver a comprehensive look at potential commercialization paths for bringing product concepts from the laboratory to manufacturing. Authors interested in presenting a full length talk should submit a regular abstract through the online abstract submission portal and indicate that they are interested in presenting in the NIL Ecosystem Session. While these talks by necessity are expected to contain some business content and market outlook, the content should primarily be science and/or technology driven (e.g. they should not be marketing talks). Content can include fundamental studies, case studies, and/or examples of current commercial applications or applications on a pathway towards commercialization, so long as there is a technical driver. The round table following the technical talks will include very brief overviews by panelists from industry and from research centers, including our exhibitors and presenters of the technical talks in this session, to set the stage for the interactive discussion.

Abstracts may be submitted through the web site portal. The maximum length is two-pages. The first page should contain text. The second page should contain figures, images, data tables etc. as needed, and references. Please use the template provided.

Topics for submission include emerging technologies and applications including advanced optics, energy storage, electronics and life sciences, new materials sets for imprinting of functional films and devices, hybrid integration of NIL with other technologies for device applications, next generation stamps and mastering technology, recent advances in tool design and capabilities, and emerging commercial applications. We further welcome contributions from technical areas adjacent and complementary to imprint and nanoprint technologies that share common target applications, including nanopatterning, soft lithography, direct write technologies, 3-D printing and additive manufacturing.

If you are interested in presenting in the NIL Ecosystem Session, please check the box on the submission form. Please note that submissions to the Ecosystem Session must contain strong technical content and cannot be primarily an overview of business directions.

Exhibition

NNT2019 is focused on connecting leading edge advances in the imprint and nanoprint communities to the broader NIL ecosystem including tech transfer, contract R&D, materials, tools and technology providers, and ultimately commercialization opportunities. The meeting will provide high visibility and ample opportunities for our exhibitors to interact with the industry, academic and national lab communities. The Monday evening reception following the NIL Ecosystem Session as well as breaks each day will take in concert with the exhibition. Our exhibitors will be provided the option of participating in the NIL Ecosystem Roundtable discussion following the sessions as well as the opportunity to submit technical talks for consideration for the Ecosystem and other Technical Session of the meeting. We will provide information about each exhibitor on the NNT website and include web links that our participants can follow to access additional information. NNT2019 will provide a secure online portal for pre scheduling 1:1 meetings among registered conference participants and our exhibitors to maximize opportunities for relationship building. Information and registration for our exhibitors can be accessed at the exhibition registration link.
