2017 Annual MONT Users Meeting

Wednesday July 12, 1:00pm-6:00pm

407 Jabs Hall, Montana State University

Register for the meeting by July 10.

Please also complete the Facility Users' Survey by July 10.

Please join us for the 2017 Montana Nanotechnology Facility (MONT) Users Meeting!

The meeting is for all facility users and principle investigators utilizing either the Montana Microfabrication Facility (MMF), Imaging and Chemical Analysis Laboratory (ICAL), Center for Biofilm Engineering (CBE) or Mass Spectrometry facilities at MSU. It will be an afternoon of interactive communication and discussion between users and facility staff about our shared nanotechnology resources. It is also an opportunity to explore new research collaborations and networks with colleagues with complementary interests.

The meeting is especially important for current users of MMF and ICAL (PIs, students and industrial users) to learn about changes on the horizon and to provide feedback about your user experience. We also invite researchers (faculty, undergraduate and graduate students, colleagues from the industrial sector) who are interested in learning more about nano-fabrication, characterization of natural and engineered nano-materials, and potential interactions with microbial life.

This year's meeting will include a poster session; please consider displaying your recent work.(Feel free to "recycle" a poster from your presentations at recent professional meetings–just share with us what your current research interests are).

This meeting is free and open to all current users and researchers who are interested in using the MONT facilities. Please confirm your participation using the registration form.

Pre-workshop User Satisfaction Survey

To help us better understand you experience as a MONT user and your needs in nanotechnology and nanoscience, we ask that you respond the the Facility Users' Survey before Monday, July 10.
