Welcome to NANO 2018
NANO Conference, spearheaded by International Committee on Nanostructured Materials (ICNM), has been acting as a traditional meeting place for most nanomaterials researchers, where the state-of-the-art research and latest advanced findings in the field are presented. A range of topics at the frontier of knowledge in the field of nanomaterials will be discussed and a wide number of scientific talks will be given by distinguished scientists in plenary and parallel sessions. ICNM initiated the first flagship event in Cancun, Mexico, in 1992. Since this inception, 13 top-level biennial flagship events have led an impactful existence across the globe —in Stuttgart, Germany in 1994; in Kona, Hawaii, USA in 1996; in Stockholm, Sweden in 1998; in Sendai, Japan in 2000; in Orlando, USA in 2002; in Wiesbaden, Germany in 2004; in Bangalore, India in 2006; in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2008; in Rome, Italy, in 2010; in Rhodes, Greece in 2012; in Moscow, Russia, in 2014; and in Quebec, Canada, in 2016.
The 14th International Conference on Nanostructured Materials (NANO2018) will be the first conference to be held in China by City University of Hong Kong. Its key priority is to establish Hong Kong as the a prominent nodal point of ICNM, to serve as an effective platform in the regional cluster for academic experts and students from top institutions around the world sharing their research achievements, to exchange ideas, to establish relationships for future high-level researches in the Nano field, and to yield symbiotic experience for world-leading scientists, delegates and sponsor firms alike.
Extensive research on nanomaterials has unveiled many interesting and promising material properties for novel applications in electronics, photonics, and biology. In order to benefit mankind for such discoveries, it is necessary to cross the chasm between nanomaterials and nanodevices and their applications. This effort will require a multi-disciplinary approach combining research in materials design, processing, modelling, characterization, and metrology. Commercialization of nanotechnology is also important to fuel future research. The aim of this conference was to identify the paths between fundamental research and potential applications in Information Technology, Precious Jewelry, Catalyst and Energy Storage Devices, Energetic Chips and Aerospace.
The 2018 Conference will consist of stimulating program of plenary sessions, keynote speeches, panel discussions, poster presentations and exhibitions in nano-science and nanotechnology. We aim to make the conference a genuine two way process and as such, technology knowledge transfer, commercialization and industrialization can be further enhanced through the interactivity.Call for abstracts on session themes including, but not limited, to:

Time and Venue
Date: 24-29 June 2018 (Sunday- Friday)
Venue: City University of Hong Kong
Address: Tat Chee Avenue, Kowloon, Hong Kong SAR
The official language of the Conference is English.
This series of conference does not have a proceeding publication. This field is progressing so fast that by the time reviewing is completed new results will be available. Therefore only the Book of Abstracts will be distributed.
