2016 SNO CONFERENCE

InterNano - Upcoming Events - November 2, 2016 - 3:51pm
ConferenceThursday, November 10, 2016 to Saturday, November 12, 2016Orlando, Florida http://www.susnano.org/SNO2016/conferenceOverview2016.html Theme: Sustainable Nanotechnology Systems This year's SNO conference sessions will again be organized around selected "systems", e.g. air-water systems. Sessions will be populated with talks on applications, effects and implications, analytical methods, and lifecycle aspects of nanomaterials within each system. The aims are to identity where nanomaterials and nanotechnology can improve the sustainability of each system and to foster integration of knowledge between applications and implications within each system. We also aim to encourage more papers on the applications of nanomaterials. Papers on lifecycle aspects of nanomaterials within each system or across systems is encouraged. New developments in analytical methods and instrumentation are also encouraged. Topics from prior conferences will be regrouped under an appropriate system.

Graphene Malaysia 2016

InterNano - Upcoming Events - November 2, 2016 - 3:27pm
ConferenceTuesday, November 8, 2016 to Wednesday, November 9, 2016Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia http://www.graphenemalaysiaconf.com/NM16/index.php Graphene Malaysia 2016 is a 2-days event centered on graphene industry interaction and collaborative innovation, launched under the National Graphene Action Plan 2020. This plan is the result of an extensive collaboration between the Malaysian government, private sector companies, domestic and international research institutes, and academia to assess how Malaysia can benefit from the potential of Graphene. The conference will feature talks by graphene key leaders from all over the world on the most relevant topics facing this new industry. Participants will have the opportunity to interact, exchange ideas, and build new connections and the agenda is designed to suit anyone who is currently working on graphene or wishes to include graphene in their products (end-users). The conference provides a platform for industry engagement and knowledge sharing across the graphene field.

PAM International School on Application of Nanomaterials in Medicine

InterNano - Upcoming Events - November 2, 2016 - 3:23pm
ConferenceWednesday, November 2, 2016 to Friday, November 4, 2016Tehran, Iran http://physics.sharif.ir/~pam/index.php/pams-3-school Nanomedicine is an emerging area of science and technology which has attracted tremendous attention among academia and industries due to its huge impact on the health and economy. Nanomedicine sales reached $16 billion in 2015 and it is expected that the industry continues to grow with a high rate. Indeed, the advances in nanotechnologies are expected to open up new possibilities and applications in diagnostics, therapy, drug delivery and regenerative medicine. The third PAM international school on Applications of Nanomaterials in Medicine covers the medical applications of nanomaterials in visualization, sensing, tissue engineering, biological devices, and related fields. Participants will acquire the fundamentals and advances in the field of nanobiomaterials. Leading experts will present the latest advances in the development of novel nanotechnologies and address a range of different challenges that are of importance to biomedicine at the interface of engineering, medicine and biological sciences. We hope you'll join us this fall in The Sharif University of Technology.
