S7: 8th International Symposium on Nanostructured Materials and Nanocomposites



The primary objective of this symposium is to bring together scientists and engineers investigating science and engineering of nanostructured materials, with a strong focus on recent innovation in nano-technological approaches and their impact on the current challenges of energy, healthcare and sustainability. In particular, special emphasis will be given to novel synthesis approaches, functionalization, processing, and characterization of metal and oxide nanoparticles, nanowires and their heterogeneous structures. Application of nanostructures in drug-delivery, catalysis, energy and sensing applications, nanostructured coatings for photovoltaic, bio-medical and optical applications will form the major thrust areas. Contributions related to energy applications such batteries, fuel cells, water splitting, as well as transparent conductors and challenges related to the large-scale production and integration of functional and structural nanomaterials will be given particular attention.
