    The nomination consists of a single (1-page max) nomination

    letter, a second (1-page max) support letter and a 2-page CV (self-

    nominations are not accepted). The nomination letter should

    describe how the nominee's research impacts the field of

    sustainable nanotechnology. The support letter should focus on

    the nominee's teaching, service and leadership in the field of

    sustainable nanotechnology. Both the nomination and support

    letters can be made by SNO members. Nominations are not

    restricted to the US or UK.

    • Eligibility: Undergraduate, graduate students, and

    postdocs.

    • Who can Join? Students involved in sustainable nanotechnology research

    • How to Join? Sign-up at the registration desk on November 9, 2017 by 2:00 PM. Please check at the registration desk at ~5:00 PM whether you are among the shortlisted participants

    • When and Where? Friday, November 9, 2018 after dinner.

    • Speak for 100 seconds and win cash awards! Pitch a problem or opportunity connected with your sustainable nanotechnology research in a clear, compelling manner in 100 seconds.

    • You should address:  Problem or opportunity addressed (What is the real-life problem)  Proposed solution(s) (How does your work/approach solve the problem in a unique way?)  Potential impacts (What will be the impact/s of your research if you are successful?)  Prepare one PowerPoint slide (No animation) and use it during your presentation – please

    bring it in a flash drive.

    • The slide must have a title for the pitch and presenter's name. (Tips: Your pitch will be judged using a rubric with points for (1) Problem Statement, (2) Proposed

    Solution/s, (3) Boarder Impacts, (4) Slide Design, and (5) Poise/Style.
