      SPONSOR PRESENTATIONS
      Optional Lunch Talks

      NANOTECHNOLOGY, IP WEALTH, AND PATENT OFFICE TRENDS
      Leon Radomsky and Steve Rutt of Foley & Lardner

      Intellectual property (IP) is critical to the survival of many
      companies, particularly young nanotechnology companies,
      which seek to develop valuable patent
      portfolios as a basis for corporate value.
      The Patent Office increasingly
      must examine nanotechnology patent applications and,
      recently, has been willing to provide the public
      with its views on nanotechnology patent policies.

      THE NANOTECH ENTREPRENEUR: LEGAL OPPORTUNITIES AND PITFALLS
      Denis Rice, Neil Smith and Duane Nash
      of Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk and Rabkin.

      The major considerations in organizing and
      funding the nanotech business and in securing its
      rights to patents and other intellectual property.

      NANO-SCALE ENGINEERING: EXTENDING & EXPANDING MOORE'S LAW
      Eric Hannah of Intel

      This presentation will discuss the roadmap and technologies for
      computing over
      the next ten years.
