In contrast to prior Foresight conferences, this one was dominated almost entirely by professional researchers who have accomplished something involving nanoscale chemistry/physics, although it was often unclear whether their research was relevant to building molecular assemblers. There were much fewer visionaries looking a decade or more into the future.

Chapter 2 of Nanomedicine provides a very comprehensive survey of research that may be relevant to building assemblers, and no summary of the conference talks can compete well enough with that chapter to be worth attempting.
