International Conference on Composites / Nanoengineering (ICCE-23)

InterNano - Upcoming Events - November 19, 2014 - 2:48pm
July 12, 2015 - The ICCE conference is unique in that while it is an engineering conference, it has attracted numerous chemists, physicists and scientists from diverse fields in our efforts to promote interdisciplinary research on composites. Of particular concern is the challenge for materials engineers to understand the wide diversity of length scales ranging from nano to micro to macro and full scale and to question the validity of the theories or models which are known to be valid only in certain length scales. The ICCE is among the first composite materials conferences which take a leading vital role to bridge the gap between nano-chemistry and nano-engineering, and attracted hundreds of papers in this existing relatively new field of nano-composites engineering.The ICCE conference will provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas in virtually all areas composite materials research. The goals of the ICCE conference are:1. The conference aims to solve or partially SOLVE CRITICAL UNRESOLVED ISSUES of our everyday lives. The methodologies involve the three pillars in Composites or Nano engineering, namely, Mechanics, Manufacturing and Materials, in all length-scales. 2. The ICCE emphasizes the \"D.I.M.\" approaches to science and engineering (DURABILITY approach to structures, INTERDISCIPLINARY approach to science, and MULTIFUNCTIONAL approach to materials). Thus, you will find many chemists and engineers in this conference, a pleasant situation since these two groups traditionally tend to attend separate conferences. The ICCE conference aims to bridge the gaps between aerospace technology, bio-materials, chemistry, electronics, energy, fluid mechanics, infrastructures, magnetic materials, metallurgy, nanotechnology, pharmacy, physics, powder metallurgy, sensors/actuators, among others.3. The goal is to ENCOURAGE LEVERAGING of composite materials research resources through joint research between participants and writing joint research proposals. ICCE-23 is held in Chengdu, China.

EuroNanoForum 2015

InterNano - Upcoming Events - November 19, 2014 - 2:42pm
June 10, 2015 - The EuroNanoForum 2015 is a meeting point for industry, science and policy. Strengthening European competitiveness and supporting its re-industrialisation, the event showcases innovation as driver for economic growth, presents new technologies arising from nanotechnologies and materials, and discusses the new applications and commercialisation potential for these technologies. The conference will review the status of European nanotechnologies: the latest progress in nanoscience, -technologies and -manufacturing, innovation and associated industrial sectors. The program features also aspects of upcoming H2020 calls, smart specialisation and public-private partnerships, as well as the most important framework conditions safety, IPR, education, standards, regulations and funding. Participating in the EuroNanoForum is an excellent opportunity for building partnerships and doing business. The fully integrated exhibition gives access to a variety of companies, projects and other organisations, meetings with potential partners, customers and key decision makers can be pre-arranged for the brokerage day, and the conference dinner and other social events provide an opportunity for more informal discussions and for enjoying Latvian hospitality. This event of 1200 participants is also a unique chance for investors and entrepreneurs or researchers with innovative results to meet and discuss.
