The New York State Superconductor Technology Summit was developed by a core group of organizations active in the superconductor industry. It was created to maintain open communication and dialogue about doing business in New York State, the opportunities and challenges identified, and best practices by successful superconductor organizations.
The inaugural Superconductor Technology Summit was held at the Westchester Community College in Valhalla, NY, in November 2010. The event was organized, in part, by HYPRES, Inc., located in nearby Elmsford, NY. For more information on the first summit, click here.
The second annual summit was held in August 2011 at miSci (formerly known as the Schenectady Museum & Suits-Bueche Planetarium) in Schenectady, NY. The event was organized by SuperPower Inc., GE Global Research, and Philips, and celebrated the 100-year anniversary of the discovery of superconductivity by Heike Kamerlingh Onnes in 1911. The Centennial Speaker for the event was Dr. Dirk van Delft, Director of the Museum Boerhaave in Leiden, The Netherlands. For more information on this event, please click here.
The Third Annual Superconductivity Summit was held on May 6-7, 2013 at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering's (CNSE) Albany Nanotech Complex in Albany, NY. The central location and world-class facilities highlighted New York State's robust superconductivity industry, and specifically highlighted the cradle of high tech here in the Capital Region.
