35th Anniversary Celebration

This special event was an opportunity to learn about the latest nano-research and research trends as the experts see them. The 2012 CNF Annual Meeting celebrated our thirty-five years of partnership with the National Science Foundation, and was used to form a vision for the next decade of service to the research community.
