To better serve its more than 150,000 users this year, is establishing a User Group to serve as a forum to facilitate the exchange of ideas among nanoHUB users.

The inaugural User Group meeting will be Wednesday, December 8, 2010, at the Westin Arlington Gateway hotel in Arlington, Virginia. The meeting will begin at 3:30 p.m., and will be in conjunction with the National Science Foundation’s Nanoscale Science and Engineering Grantees Conference. Registration is required to attend and may be made at

The meeting topics will be: “150,000 Users and Growing: A Overview”; “ Real Users and Real Stories”; and “The Future of”. users are invited to attend.

Members of the User Group include representatives from education, research and industry. Insight gathered from the user Group will help guide selection of content, improve the understanding of user needs, and accelerate the evolution of nanoHUB.

In addition, the User Group will help create an improved user experience for faculty and students, and enhance learning experiences, said director Gerhard Klimeck. “The User Group offers an excellent opportunity for members to interact directly with the leadership
team,” he added.

During the year the group will convene through teleconferences, wiki pages, and an annual user conference.

The Network for Computational Nanotechnology is a National Science Foundation infrastructure and research network founded in 2002 with the mission to support and further the National Nanotechnology Initiative by designing, constructing, deploying and operating a national cyber-resource for nanotechnology theory, modeling and simulation. is the vehicle to achieve that mission.

NCN currently focuses on four areas: nanoelectronics, nanoelectromechanics, nanophotonics and nano-devices for biology and medicine. The NCN network is Purdue University; University of California, Berkeley; University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign; the Molecular Foundry at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory; Norfolk State University; Northwestern University; the University of Texas at El Paso; and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
