Dear Friends and Colleagues,


We take pleasure to invite you to participate in the Nanostructures symposium of the XVII International Conference on Surfaces, Materials and Vacuum. Participants interested in presenting an oral or poster contribution are invited to submit an abstract.


The symposium scientific program will cover a wide spectrum of topics including physical phenomena, materials sciences, and applications of nanostructures. The diversity of topics provides an opportunity to broaden the knowledge on latest developments and future perspectives in nanostructures research. Current development in the nanostructured materials includes: (i) Synthesis, functionalization, processing and self-assembly of nanoparticles, (ii) Nanotubes, nanowires, quantum dots and other low dimensional structures, (iii) Bio-active nanomaterials and nanostructured materials for bio-medical applications, (iv) Carbon nanostructured materials, Nano-structured membranes, nano-porous materials, functional coatings, (v) Nanomaterials for photo-catalysis, solar hydrogen and thermoelectric, (vi) Nano-fabrication, characterization and manipulation techniques for nanostructures, (vii) Magnetic and nano-semiconductor materials, (ix) Industrial development and application of nanomaterials and (x) Theoretical studies of nanostructured materials.


We look forward to welcoming you.
