NanoFlorida 2016

InterNano - Upcoming Events - June 15, 2016 - 4:28pm
ConferenceSunday, September 25, 2016 to Monday, September 26, 2016University of Central Florida, Orlando http://nanoscience.ucf.edu/ NanoFlorida™ 2016 is the second nanoscience based conference in Florida and is centralized around the theme of industry-academia networking. NanoFlorida™ is currently the only conference in Florida to be organized solely by students. The purpose of this conference is to provide a forum for researchers in the state of Florida to help exchange scientific information and to forge strong industry-academia research partnerships. Faculties and company representatives all over Florida have been invited to attend the symposium. Last year, NanoFlorida™ 2015 was a great success: we hosted over 200 participants from universities throughout Florida. To continue with our efforts, we are again organizing NanoFlorida™ 2016, the 8th Annual Nanoscience Technology Symposium at the University of Central Florida – Student Union on September 25-26th, 2016.

At the same time, we would explore further communication and collaboration through social activities during the conference.

4th International Conference on Nanotechnology in Medicine

InterNano - Upcoming Events - June 15, 2016 - 3:39pm
ConferenceMonday, November 7, 2016 to Wednesday, November 9, 2016Warsaw, Poland http://www.nanomed.uk.com/ NanoMED is being organized as part of “NANOSMAT Focus Meetings”. The first ever NANOSMAT conference was held in Portugal in 2005. Ever since, NANOSMAT conferences have grown rapidly and have become increasingly popular amongst researchers, scientists, academics and industrialists from all over the world. NANOMED will provide a unique platform for discussing key aspects of nanotechnology and its applications in medicine. In doing so, the conference will attract international delegates from academia, industry and research institutes to network, exchange ideas and gain new insights on the forefront of nanotechnology and medicine. The conference will see a range of oral, poster presentations, plenary, keynote, invited talks, workshops, and it will also host an exhibition.
