This contract was for partial support of honoraria and registration fees for speakers and other expenses at the Conference on Foundations of Nanoscience, Snowbird, Utah from Monday, April 11 Thursday, April 14, 2016. Objectives The Foundations of Nanoscience meeting FNANO was established by the International Society for Nanoscale Science, Computation, and Engineering in 2004 as a venue for the wide range of researchers interested in various aspects of self-assembly as it relates to nanoscience and nanotechnology. The meeting features 12tracks covering recent work in different types of self-assembled architectures and devices, at scales ranging from nano-scale to meso-scale. Methodologies include both experimental as well as theoretical approaches. The conference spanned traditional disciplines including chemistry, biochemistry, physics, computer science, mathematics, and various engineering disciplines including MEMSNEMS systems. The emphasis is on basic, rather than applied research. Why the conference was appropriate at the time, date and location chosen The time and date was chosen to not be in conflict with other related conferences. The location was chosen to a location easily evaluable via air-flight, with a short distance to the nearest airport in Salt Lake City, and with very affordable hotel rooms.
