XI International Conference on Nanostructured Materials – NANO 2012


XI International Conference on Nanostructured Materials – NANO 2012 organized by Rutgers University, USA, the Demokritos National Center for Scientific Research, Greece, and International Committee on Nanostructured Materials was held at the Rodos Palace Conference Center in Rhodes, Greece, on August 26-31, 2012. This conference has been held biannually for the past twenty years and it has been one of the most renowned scientific meetings of distinguished researchers in the fields of the synthesis, characterization and application of nanomaterials. As a forum at which the latest research results related to nanomaterials are presented, it included six plenary lectures and more than one hundred invited lectures. The quality of the contributions is best illustrated by the names of speakers and the titles of their lectures:

Prof. Daniel Shechtman, Technion, Israel (the laureate of the 2011 Nobel Prize in Chemistry)
Quasi Periodic materials discovery

Prof. Herbery Gleiter, Vice President, German Academy of Sciences
Glasses with nanometer sized microstructures: A new kind of amorphous materials

Dr Subra Suresh, National Science Foundation, USA
Nano Science for materials engineering and for the study of human diseases

Dr. Orlando Auciello, President-elect of Materials Research Society, USA
Science and technology of multifunctional ultra-nanocrystalline diamond films and applications to a new generation of industrial Micro / Nanoelectronic, MEMS / NEMS and biomedical devices / systems

Prof. R. W. Siegel, Materials Science and Engineering Department and Rensselaer Nanotechnology Center Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, New York, USA
Nanostructured materials 20 years later

Dr. Julie A. Christodoulou, Office of Naval Research, USA
Nanostructured materials in the digital age: The implications of ICME and MGI for research



Dr. Lidia Mančić (ITS SASA) contributed to the conference with the latest results of research in the field of synthesis and characterization of optically active nanomaterials. Her presentations were followed by interesting discussions with Prof. Eric Jordan (University of Connecticut), Professor. Dr. Viola Acoff (University of Alabama), Ph.D. Rumiana Kotsilkova (Bulgarian Academy of Sciences) and Prof. Inas Ahmed Kamal E Zawawi (National Research Center of Egypt) about the synthesis methods applied and possible research cooperation.
