UPDATE: Submission deadline extended to 31-Oct

The Nanotechnology Council (NTC) is seeking nominations for distinguished lectures. The NTC has created a distinguished lecturers program to enhance the visibility of NTC among nanotechnology societies. The NTC Distinguished Lecturers are appointed to honor excellent speakers who have made technical, industrial or entrepreneurial contributions of high quality to the field of nanotechnology and science, and to enhance the technical programs of the Nanotechnology Council chapters and conferences. Consideration is given to having a well-balanced variety of speakers who can address a wide range of topics of current interest in the fields covered by the Society.

The term for the Lecturers is from January 1 until December 31 of 2019. The Lecturers serve for a one year term, and may be reappointed for one additional year with approval of the NTC Distinguished Lecturer Committee. A budget will be provided each Lecturer to give lectures for NTC Chapters and NTC Conferences based on availability of funding through the NTC. DLs are expected to give a minimum of 2 lectures per year as part of their commitment to serve.
