You can go to this link to sign up for the Foresight Technical conference and use discount code 2013NBFQ for a $100 discount.

For 2012 Foresight members the rate is $345.

The Foresight Technical conference is in Palo Alto, California
The topic is Illuminating Atomic Precision.

This conference will bring together over thirty of the world’s leading researchers to present reviews and results on a wide range of work relating to atomic and molecularly precise devices and materials, and their fabrication. It will provide a richly heterogeneous mix of speakers and participants to catalyze interdisciplinary dialogue, productive collaboration, and progress towards beneficial atomically precise nanotechnologies.

One of the researchers will be George Church (involved in Synthetic Biology)

I, Brian Wang, will be attending the conference.

There are five main conference themes:

1. Atomic Scale Devices

2. Molecular Machines and Non-equilibrium processes

3. Self-Organizing and Adaptive Systems

4. Commercially Implemented Single Molecule Technologies

5. Computation and Molecular Nanotechnologies
