Description

The Lightweight Materials for Auto & Air conference, organized by Institute for Defense and Government Advancement (IDGA), will focus on the research, development and the government aspect of lightweight materials for the automotive and aerospace industries. The conference will take place on May 24 - 26 at the Hamilton Crowne Plaza Hotel, Washington D.C.

The Government, more specifically the DOE, is looking to “develop new, cost-effective, environmentally sound materials and process technologies to enable the U.S. transportation industry to be more energy efficient through vehicle weight reduction.” The overall purpose is to achieve dramatic innovative enhancements in the properties and performance of structures, materials, and devices that have controllable features on the nanometer scale.

Take this opportunity to understand the evolutionary and revolutionary applications of nanomaterials, carbon nanotubes, and what NASA, leading manufacturers within the automotive and aerospace industries are currently researching.

Key speakers at this event include:
- Phillip J. Bond, Under Secretary of commerce for Technology, Technology Adminstration, US DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE
- Dr. E. Clayton Teague, Director, NATIONAL NANOTECHNOLOGY COORDINATION OFFICE
- Rogelio Sullivan, Team Leader, Materials Technologies, U.S. DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY
- Donald A. Bansieben, Ph.D. Acting Group Leader Chemistry and Materials Group, Advanced Technology Program, NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF STANDARDS AND TECHNOLOGY (NIST)
- James F. Quinn, P.E., Staff Research Engineer, GENERAL MOTORS R&D, MATERIALS AND PROCESSES LAB
- Dr. Meyya Meyyappan, Director, NASA AMES CENTER FOR NANOTECHNOLOGY
