          John Rogers, University of Illinois at Urbana Abstract: Materials for Electronics That Can Stretch, Twist, Fold and Flex Biology is soft and curvilinear; silicon technology is rigid and planar. Electronic systems that eliminate this profound mismatch in physical properties will create new opportunities for devices that can integrate intimately with biological tissues and/or exploit biologically inspired designs. Recent work establishes a set of materials, mechanics concepts and manufacturing approaches for such a technology. This talk describes the key ideas through various examples, ranging from thin, elastic monitoring devices that wrap the heart, brain and skin, to digital cameras that adopt layouts inspired by ocular systems found in mammals and arthropods. John Rogers Biography John A. Rogers obtained BA and BS degrees in chemistry and in physics from the University of Texas at Austin in 1989. From MIT, he received SM degrees in physics and in chemistry in 1992 and a PhD in physical chemistry in 1995.

            Every year, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund host their annual meeting, a gathering of finance ministers, bankers, government officials, private sector representatives and journalists from around the world. The meeting, held in Washington D.C, is a forum for discussion of global economic issues and for identifying solutions to a variety of problems affecting the economy and the welfare of citizens. This year, the meeting opened just days after President Barack Obama's candidate for the post of World Bank president -- Yong Kim -- was elected, despite bold endorsements by newspapers such as the Financial Times and The Economist for Nigerian finance minister Ngozi Ikonjo Iweala. It is unclear what, if any effect, the election of yet another American -- the fourteenth since the World Bank was founded in 1944- will have.

              Alexandra Boltasseva, Purdue University Abstract: Empowering Plasmonics and Metamaterials Technology with New Material Platforms In recent years, plasmonics and metamaterials have seen an explosion of novel ideas and device designs. However, transforming these concepts into practical devices requires a significant amount of effort. The constituent materials in these devices play a crucial role in realizing useful and efficient devices. Similar to the way silicon shaped the nanoelectronics field, efforts toward finding the best set of materials for plasmonic and metamaterial devices could revolutionize the field of nanophotonics. As a potential solution, alternative plasmonic materials have recently gained significant attention. Metals, despite being essential components of plasmonic and metamaterial devices, pose many technological challenges toward the realization of practical devices—primarily due to their high optical loss, integration and fabrication limitations. Hence, searching for an alternative to metals is vital to the success of future nanophotonic devices. In this talk, I will provide a brief survey of recent developments in the pursuit of better plasmonic materials, and discuss several classes of materials including doped semiconductor oxides and ceramics as potential alternatives to metals that provide low intrinsic loss, tunability and compatibility with standard semiconductor fabrication processes. Alexandra Boltasseva Biography Alexandra Boltasseva is an assistant professor at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Birck Nanotechnology Center, Purdue University, and an adjunct associate professor at Technical University of Denmark (DTU). She received her PhD in electrical engineering at DTU in 2004. Boltasseva specializes in nanophotonics, nanofabrication, plasmonics and metamaterials. She received the IEEE Photonics Society Young Investigator Award, the MIT Technology Review Top Young Innovator (TR35) Award that "honors 35 innovators under 35 each year whose work promises to change the world," the Purdue College of Engineering Early Career Research Award, the Young Researcher Award in Advanced Optical Technologies from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany, and the Young Elite-Researcher Award from the Danish Council for Independent Research. She is topical editor for Optics Letters and the Journal of Optics and guest editor for Advances in OptoElectronics, a senior member of the OSA, member of the IEEE, SPIE and MRS. Boltasseva has co-authored three invited book chapters and 65 research papers in refereed journals. She has an h-index of 22 (ISI Web of Science)/26 (Google Scholar) with a total number of citations above 1600. Boltasseva has been featured as an invited speaker at 59 international conferences and leading research centers. Read More: http://www.mrs.org/spring-2013-outstanding-young-investigator-award/

                  De Springmeeting is een jaarlijkse bijeenkomst van honderden onderzoekers in de jaarbeurs in Utrecht. Om de betrokkenheid van, en de herkenbaarheid voor de deelnemers te vergroten werd Kicks gevraagd dit moment meer als een ‘event’ aan te kleden. De opdracht was het ontwikkelen van een sympathieke stijl voor de uitvoering van de diverse middelen en daarnaast het produceren van een openingsanimatie.Met aanvullende voorwaarde dat de stijl meerdere jaren te gebruiken moest zijn. Kicks introduceerde een bij (bee TI Pharma!) als centraal karakter in de uitingen. Een Springmeeting-logo werd ontwikkeld, evenals een event-stijl: sterk refererend aan de huisstijl (kleuren) van TI Pharma maar overgoten met een vrolijke lentesaus. De openingsanimatie werd op vier grote schermen gedraaid en zette voor de rest van de dag vast de juiste toon.

                    Younan Xia, Georgia Institute of Technology Colloidal Metal Nanocrystals—Shape Control, Symmetry Breaking and Niche Applications Controlling the shape of colloidal nanocrystals may initially seem like a scientific curiosity, but its implication goes far beyond aesthetic appeal. For nanocrystals made of noble metals, shape not only determines their chemical, plasmonic, and catalytic properties but also their relevance for electronic and photonic applications. Although the first synthesis of colloidal nanocrystals can be traced back to the groundbreaking work on gold colloids by Michael Faraday in 1856, only within the last decade have methods became available for producing colloidal nanocrystals in the quality, quantity, and reproducibility needed for a systematic study of their properties as a function of size, shape and structure, and for exploration of their remarkable applications. This talk will briefly discuss some of these developments, with a focus on shape-controlled synthesis of metal nanocrystals via seed-mediated growth and symmetry breaking induced by kinetic control. We have been working diligently to understand the nucleation and growth mechanisms leading to the formation of nanocrystals with specific shapes and structures. For example, we have discovered that the shape of metal nanocrystals is dictated by the crystallinity and structure of the seeds, which are, in turn, controlled by factors such as reduction kinetics, oxidative etching and surface capping. The success of these syntheses has enabled us to tailor the properties of noble-metal nanocrystals for a range of applications in photonics, sensing, imaging, biomedicine, catalysis and fuel cell technology. Younan Xia Biography Younan Xia is the Brock Family Chair and Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar in Nanomedicine at Georgia Institute of Technology. His research interests include the development of new methodologies for controlling the synthesis of nanostructured materials and exploration of their applications in biomedical research and catalysis. He received his BS degree in chemical physics from the University of Science and Technology of China in 1987, and a PhD in physical chemistry from Harvard University (with Professor George M. Whitesides) in 1996. Xia has received a number of awards, including the ACS National Award in the Chemistry of Materials (2013); MRS Fellow (2009); NIH Director's Pioneer Award (2006); ACS Leo Hendrik Baekeland Award (2005); Camille Dreyfus Teacher Scholar (2002); David and Lucile Packard Fellow in Science and Engineering (2000); NSF CAREER Award (2000); Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow (2000); ACS Victor K. LaMer Award (1999); and Camille and Henry Dreyfus New Faculty Award (1997). He has co-authored more than 500 publications in peer-reviewed journals, together with an h-index of 129. He has been named a Top 10 Chemist and Materials Scientist based on the number of citations per paper. He has served as an associate editor of Nano Letters since 2002.
