CAMP Annual Technical Meeting
Technical Meeting was held May 16 - 18, 2007 at the Canandaigua
Inn on the Lake in Canandaigua, New York. The very successful
meeting had over 100 attendees including representatives of Industry,
University, and New York State Economic Development Organizations.
A reception was again hosted by Ferro Electronic Material Systems (a Corporate Sponsor of CAMP).
The keynote speakers were Dr. Steven C. Freilich ( Director, Materials Sciences and Engineering, DuPont CR & D) and Dr. Vladimir Gartstein (Research Fellow, Global Biotech & Chemical Technology Division, The Procter & Gamble Company). Dr. Freilich’s keynote address was entitled “Innovation in the New Millennium: A DuPont Perspective.” The title of the keynote address presented by Dr. Gartstein was “Innovation at P&G.”
This year's meeting had a record number of poster presentations on CAMP research. They were judged in three categories: most attractive, most creative, and best overall. Certificates were presented by CAMP's Dr. Dana Barry to the first, second, and third place winners of each category. The judges were Brian Santora (Ferro), Gregory Berube (NanoDynamics), Dr. Yi Yang (Ferro), and Dr. John Lorenc (SI Group). The winners are listed below.
