S7: 5th International Symposium on Nanostructured Materials and Nanotechnology: Development and Applications


This symposium will focus on science and technology of nanostructured materials, with a strong focus on the elaboration of the practical side of nanotechnology. Besides approaches towards novel synthesis, functionalization, processing, and characterization of Nanomaterials, structure-property correlations at nanometer length scales and application of nanomaterials for coating, photovoltaic, bio-medical, optical and sensing applications will form the major thrust areas. Contributions related to fabrication of nano-devices and challenges related to large-scale integration of functional nanostructures (nanowires and nanotubes) as well as industrial development of Nanostructured materials will be given particular attention.


Proposed Symposium Topics

  • Industrial development and application of nanomaterials
  • Nanostructured membranes, thin films, functional coatings
  • Synthesis, functionalization, processing and self-assembly of nanoparticles
