Nanostructured Materials and Nanotechnology

This symposium aims to provide an international forum on the latest developments in nanotechnology and nanomaterials research, including the tools used for their study, considering experimental and theoretical approaches. The focus will be primarily on the synthesis, processing, characterization and modeling of nanomaterials and nanocomposites. The symposium will also cover structure-property correlations at the nanoscale, understanding of fundamental phenomena occurring in nanoscale systems and processes, and the design, applications and industrial development of nanostructured materials and nanosystems.

The symposium will include a session devoted specifically to low dimensional carbon nanostructures, since they are at the forefront of materials research and exhibit novel properties with potential applications for high speed nano-electronics, high performance composites for mechanical, electrical and thermal applications, high efficiency photovoltaics and field emitters. Contributions reporting results on carbon materials with structural diversity from zero-dimensional buckyballs to one dimensional carbon nanotubes (CNTs), two dimensional graphene and all of its allotropes and derivates (graphane, graphine, graphene oxide, etc.), are welcome.

By participating in this Symposium, attendees will gain a deep insight into the current status of research and development in academia, international laboratories and industries in the field of nanotechnology, and develop possible collaborations.

Symposium papers will be published in MRS proceedings after peer review
