    In today's world, "Packaging Engineering" is a discipline of designing IC and MEMS platforms and electronic circuits at the mircoscale. The integrated circuit is so well established and common that many of us have given it little thought -- until now, with the advent of Nanotechnology. My vision is to bring an attitude of engagement between the Engineer and Nanotechnology. Therefore, I shall define Nanotechnology, answering the question, "Is it real?" After exposing its benchmark, I compare the technology readiness level and introduce achievements to date. Then, more importantly, we will examine why only the Engineer can grow the Nanotechnology Frontier into an Industry.

    Speaker Biography
    Dr. Anthony F. Laviano is Managing Director and founder of NANOWorld, a nanotechnology education service and founder of ADTEKT, an engineering management service for Advanced Technologies. He was formally a Program Manager for Advanced Technical Programs and a member of the Patent Committee for Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems and established the Nano Engineering and Science Technology Interest Group (NEST) and the Power Electronics Technology Interest Group (PET). His focus is Advanced Technologies and Products for ground, air and space, and dual-use applications, that is, identifying, organizing, and transitioning technology into military and commercial applications. Dr. Laviano is the past Chairman of the IEEE Power Electronics Society for Southern California, a member of IEEE Standards Association, the IEEE Los Angeles Council, the Academy of Management, the Los Angeles Regional Technology Alliance (LARTA) Nanotechnology Working Group, the Journal of Public Administration Editorial Board, the Northrop Rice Aviation Institute of Technology Advisory Board, and a former member of the National Faculty of Nova Southeastern University Graduate School of Business and Hughes General Motors Technology Staff. Dr. Laviano has lectured both in the United States and United Kingdom on the subject of "Growing Nano Engineers to Apply and Use Nanotechnology" and serves on the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, National Research Council Nanotechnology Committee.
