Abstract

For many decades, nanotechnology has been developed with cooperation from researchers in several fields of studies including physics, chemistry, biology, material science, engineering, and computer science. In this chapter, we explore the nanotechnology development community and identify the needs and opportunities of computer science research in nanotechnology. In particular we look at methods for programming future nanotechnology, examining the capabilities offered by simulations and intelligent systems. This chapter is intended to benefit computer scientists who are keen to contribute their works to the field of nanotechnology and also nanotechnologists from other fields by making them aware of the opportunities from computer science. It is hoped that this may lead to the realisation of our visions.
