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 July 2018: Abstract Submission Deadline

25 July 2018: Abstract Acceptance Notification Deadline

15 August 2018: Submission of Conference Proceedings Papers/Posters Deadline

1-15 September 2018: Conference Date

15 November 2018: Conference Special Issue Paper Deadline

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