WASHINGTON, Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The CANEUS Organization and the
American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), in partnership with
the Centre for Large Space Structures and Systems (CLS3) and NASA, are hosting
the upcoming CANEUS 2004 Conference and Workshop, being held 1-5 November 2004
at the Hyatt Regency Monterey in Monterey, California.
CANEUS 2004 is the world's premier international forum devoted to micro-
nano-technologies (MNT) development for aerospace applications. This event
will provide a venue for participants, including researchers, systems
integrators, funding agencies, and aerospace systems buyers from Canada,
Europe, the United States, and Asia Pacific regions, to address the efficient
development of aerospace MNT "from concepts to systems" and to foster
international collaboration aimed at creating MNT-based aerospace products.
As continual progress is made in the manufacture and characterization of
micro-nano-scale technologies, MNT is becoming more and more commercially
viable to the aerospace industry. Current industry participants in the
conference include The Boeing Company, Lockheed Martin Corporation, GE
Aircraft Engines, Airbus, BAE Systems Advanced Technology Centre, Hewlett
Packard, EADS, Alcatel Space Industries, Goodrich Corporation, and Motorola.
