NANOMATERIALS AND NANOTECHNOLOGIES (NN 2003),
Crete, Greece; August 30 - September 6, 2003
The objective of the Conference is to present current multidisciplinary
research on nanostructured materials and development of nanotechnologies
with primary focus on promotion of their industrial applications.
This Conference aims to assess the current status and to identify
future priority directions of fabrication, research, design and applications
of quantum dots and wires, nanocomposites, carbon nanotubes, self-assembled
supramolecules, nanostructured bulk solids, films and coatings.This Conference
also aims to reinforce connection between the fundamental science, engineering
and commercialization of nanostructures; between universities, governmental
laboratories, academic institutions, private research sector and industry.
Particular emphasis will be placed on developing close interactions among
scientists and engineers from Asia, Europe, and North America and fostering
future transdisciplinary and multi-institutional collaboration in this new
and rapidly growing area.
We plan to focus on the following topics:
- Synthesis and processing;
- Characterization and properties;
- Theory and modeling;
- Applications and commercialization.
