S7-9th International Symposium on Nanostructured Materials: Innovative Synthesis and Processing of Nanostructured, Nanocomposite and Hybrid Functional Materials for Energy, Health and Sustainability

Register for ICACC'15


This symposium will focus on the functional inorganic and hybrid materials and techniques that offer advanced processing, improved properties, and low-cost/low-temperature synthesis, with a strong focus on the recent innovation in nanotechnological approaches and the assessment of their industrial impact. In particular, special emphasis will be given to novel synthesis approaches, functionalization, processing, and characterization of nanoparticles, nanowires, nanoscopic films and their heterostructures. 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. Interested and committed individuals from academia, national laboratories, industries and start-up companies are invited to contribute by submitting their abstracts on the following and related topics:
