InterNano - Upcoming Events - July 16, 2015 - 3:45am
July 13, 2015 - Third International Conference on Advanced Complex Inorganic Nanomaterials: From a deeper understanding of the synthesis of complex nanostructured materials to physical and chemical processing and applications. 13th-16th July 2015, Namur, Belgium Energy, environmental issues and health care are amongst the top priorities of modern society. Such issues have sparked phenomenal interest in inorganic nanomaterials as they hold great promise to develop new advanced devices and equipment which revolutionise the way we live. Investigating the structuration of materials on the nanoscale has revealed unprecedented physical (optics, magnetism, etc.) and chemical (e.g. catalysis) properties that are absent in bulk matter of the same chemical composition. These specific functionalities are the consequence of a complex multi-level organisation (chemical, structural, textural) of the architecture of inorganic nanomaterials. The global properties and functional performances largely depend on the extent to which these levels are mastered during the synthesis process.

6th International Conference on Nanotechnology: Fundamentals and Applications (ICNFA 2015)

InterNano - Upcoming Events - July 16, 2015 - 3:45am
July 15, 2015 - As globalization leads to an increasing interaction between regions and people of the world, it is important to encourage academic growth in emerging scientific topics such as nanotechnology. Nanotechnology, even though rapidly growing, is still just beginning and already has given rise to numerous novel applications for the solution of many current problems.ICNFA is a series of international conferences which are held yearly. These conferences focus on all aspects of Nanotechnology. After the success of the fifth conference in Prague, Czech Republic, ICNFA will remain in Europe and Barcelona, Spain will host the sixth international conference.The aim of ICNFA\'15 is to bring together the Canadian and International community working in the field of nanotechnology to foster an environment conducive to present advancements in Nanotechnology. This conference will also provide an ideal opportunity to develop new collaborations and partnerships with experts in the field. This year\'s conference guarantees to be a great occasion to share knowledge and contribute to the ever-growing scientific world on Nanotechnology. ICNFA\'15 will take advantage of the synergy of previous year\'s conferences and will continue to move forward in the field of Nanotechnology. ICNFA\'15 will provide keynote talks, oral presentations sessions and poster sessions that will demonstrate new information and research in regards to Nanotechnology.
