Agilent Technologies Announces Fourth NanoMeasure Scientific Symposium

National Center for Nanoscience and Technology in Beijing to Host Event

SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 10, 2014

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that NanoMeasure 2014, a scientific symposium, will take place Sept. 16-17 at the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology in Beijing, China. The two-day event, Agilent's fourth such symposium, will feature some of the world's most prestigious scientists presenting the latest nanomeasurement-driven research.

The agenda comprises four application-focused sessions:

  • In Situ Life Science Studies, Biomaterials and Single-Molecule Characterization at the Nanoscale
  • Films, Membranes and Materials for Renewable Energy
  • Nanomechanical Properties of Organic and Inorganic Materials
  • Discovering and Exploring New Nanoscale Frontiers

The symposium's keynote speakers are professor Chen Wang of the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology and George M. Pharr, Ph.D., of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

NanoMeasure 2014 offers a friendly, professional forum for researchers to share their work. Each of Agilent's first three symposiums, held in 2010 at Jagiellonian University (Krakow, Poland), in 2012 at Stanford University (California), and in 2013 at the University of Warsaw (Poland), drew tremendous international interest.

All users of atomic force microscopes, nanomechanical test instrumentation, and complementary nanomeasurement techniques and technologies are encouraged to submit paper and poster abstracts. Each of the sessions will include guest speakers and as many as 10 presented papers, selected on their merit by an independent scientific committee. The program will be augmented by a comprehensive poster session.

The four session chairs for NanoMeasure 2014 are professor Dong Han (National Center for Nanoscience and Technology), professor Liwei Chen (Suzhou Institute of Nano-Tech and Nano-Bionics), Marco Sebastiani, Ph.D. (University of Rome), and Dr. Sanjeevi Sivasankar (Iowa State University).

Among the symposium's scheduled guest speakers are professor Gang-yu Liu (University of California, Davis), professor Dr. Liu Zheng (Nanyang Technological University), professor Dr. Karsten Durst (TU Darmstadt, Germany), professor Dr. Shaoxing Qu (Zhejiang University), and professor Dr. Tim Albrecht (Imperial College).

Additional information regarding registration, submitting paper and poster abstracts, and symposium speakers is available at www.nano-measure.com.
