The goals of the Environmental Nanotechnology Gordon Conference are to draw attention to the need to proactively manage the emergence and implementation of nanotechnology into large scale commercial activities and products as to avert such problems that arose with earlier materialschemical research and application such as those involving DDT, leaded gasoline, PCBs, CRCs and numerous other substances nowincluding fluorinated surfactants and to explore and discuss opportunities for using nanotechnology to benefit society through its role in technology development. This is a critical research nexus for several reasons that are likely of high interest to the Army 1. New technologies will be developed and applied using nanotechnology by the military and even by our adversaries, which will interface with the environment 2 There are a number of important yet unresolved questions concerning the safety of such materials 3 The potential exposure scenarios, and their interaction with the biological and environmental systems are still largely unknown 4 Nanomaterials and nano-enabled technologies are being created that can aid the military in the development of sensors, water treatment technologies, and environmental cleanup technologies.Other questions relate to how these materials, may transform andor move through various environmental or biological media or from one media to another across the life cycle of nanomaterials. Finally, the tremendous success of Gordon Conferences at facilitating meetings that are in depth, intense scientific discussions involving scientific leaders in their disciplines and communities has been well documented. In this spirit, the overall objective of the 2019 Gordon Research Conference on Environmental Nanotechnology is to bring together prominent investigators who are at the forefront of their research fields and provide unique opportunities for early career investigators, postdoctoral and graduate students to present their work
