The Shiley School of Engineering is sponsoring a talk by Purdue University professor Tanya Faltens (“nanoHUB.org: an Open Access Science and Engineering Gateway for Research and Education in Nanotechnology and Related Fields”), on the National Science Foundation’s nanoHUB technology platform, on Thursday, June 18, from noon to 1 p.m., in Franz Hall room 212. Her talk is free and open to faculty, staff, students, and the public, especially those who have an interest in nanotechnology.
Faltens is the educational content creation manager for the Network for Computational Nanotechnology (NCN), which created the open access nanoHUB.org cyberplatform. Her presentation will provide an overview of nanoHUB’s online resources, and give examples of their use for the study of nanoscale science and engineering.
Currently the world’s largest virtual nanotechnology user facility, with over 330,000 users, nanoHUB was established in 2002 with the mission of supporting the National Nanotechnology Initiative through its innovative platform for sharing research and educational resources with a diverse user community.
After an introduction to nanoHUB, a hands-on workshop and open discussion will be held, and those who plan to attend are encouraged to bring a laptop computer with internet access to explore nanoHUB. Creating a free nanoHUB account in advance and installing the latest version of Java will expedite the process of running simulation tools.
