Abstract Submission: 15/05/2018
Acceptance Notification: 25/05/2018

Welcome from the Chairs

After decades of intense research, nanomaterials are now an integral part of many applications and enjoy the attention of a large research community. Intrinsically multi-disciplinary, research activities are spanning from engineering, over physics and chemistry to biology and medicine. Likewise, current applications may differ from contrast agents for medical imaging to touch screens for mobile phones.

The scope of this online conference is to cover the whole breadth of nanomaterials research and provide a forum for presenting and discussing new results.

The conference will be free of charge for presenters and visitors. There will be an opportunity to publish peer-reviewed and accepted papers in a Special Issue in Nanomaterials (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials). MDPI offers a 20% discount on the publication fees for this Special Issue.

Important dates:

15 May 2018: Abstract Deadline

25 May 2018: Abstract Acceptance Notification Deadline

1-15 July 2018: Conference Date

15 August 2018: Conference Special Issue Paper Deadline

We hope that this conference will be an inspiring and and exciting event.

Conference Chair

Professor Thomas Nann
Thomas Nann is Director of the MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology, and Alan MacDiarmid Professor of Chemistry at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. Thomas’ research interests focus on the synthesis, characterisation and application of functional nanomaterials and their application in the areas of energy and health. He has a track record of fundamental and applied research on these topics, which is documented by numerous publications in high ranking journals. Furthermore, he has successfully supervised PhD and PostDoctoral students, concluded many industrial collaborative projects, holds several patents and is a member of editorial boards of scientific journals.

Conference Co-Chair

Professor Clemens Burda
Clemens Burda is the Chemical Professor at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, USA. His research centers around Physical Nanochemistry, Photoscience and Nano/Photo-medicine. Dr. Burda is increasingly attracted to renewable energy and biomedical opportunities that come with modern nanomaterial science. In the field of photocatalysis, Prof. Burda’s team has developed the first nitrogen-doped nanoparticles. His group also developed and published the first plasmonic semiconductor nanoparticles. Dr. Burda’s research team has developed some of the first targeted nanoparticles for PDT to treat hard to reach tumors and he developed thermoelectric nanomaterials. Expanding the frontiers of materials science and providing a deeper understanding of the physical chemistry underlying functional nanomaterials has become the focus of Prof. Burda’s research.
