The NanoMetrology 2020 conference topics/ sessions include, but not limited to:
Session 1- Characterization at the nanoscale
Session 2- Standards for nanometer scale Characterization
Session 3- Modeling and simulations at the nanoscale
Session 4- Nanosafety/ Nanotoxicity, Society and regulation issues
In addition to these main conference sessions, the following workshops and focused symposia will run in parallel:
Symposium 1: When size, shape and orientation of nanoparticles matter
Chair: Prof. Jacques Jupille, Institut des Nanosciences de Paris-Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC) – CNRS Paris, France
Description: In a large number of applications, the size, shape and orientation of nanoparticles are crucial parameters to obtain the desired properties. This includes catalyst particles of controlled activity, quantum dots that exhibits selected optoelectronic properties, metallic nanoparticles whose plasmonics drives the optical response. A one-day session of the Nanotech Conference will be devoted to the issue, opened by two invited conferences. Andrea M. Rossi (National Institute of Metrological Research, Italy) will focus on metrology in science and Gianmario Martra (University of Torino) will show how catalytic properties of nanoparticles depend on their crystallography.
In addition, two abstracts will be selected among those that will be submitted in the framework of this one-day session. Their authors will be invited to give an invited keynote presentation during the afternoon of the day. Inscription fees will be waived for those authors. To help the selection of the abstracts, authors are required to send a very short CV of less than 400 characters.
Symposium 2: Mathematical Modelling in Nanotechnology and Nanofluids
Chairs: Prof. James M Hill, University of South Australia, Australia
Description: Mathematical modelling in nanotechnology and nanofluids constitute emerging areas of research where analytical and computational tools and techniques from the mathematical sciences are used to investigate problems in nanotechnology and nanofluids. Modelling can generate important new insights into complex processes, and reveal optimal parameters or situations that might otherwise be difficult or costly to obtain, especially through experimentation. The ability to predict the performance of nanomaterials under various conditions can lead to successful development of nanoscale devices for applications, such as clean energy and medical technology. This session aims to gather mathematicians, engineers and scientists who are interested in learning and discussing the latest development and new directions in the use of mathematical formulation and computational approaches to enhance the properties of nanomaterials in various applications. The programme of this session will showcase the state-of-the-art of this fundamental field of research with international experts and participants will have the opportunity to present their most recent advances in the field.
Symposium 3 on Nanocoatings/ Thin films and nanostructured surfaces
Description: The symposium topics will include, but not limited to, the following topics:
Symposium 4: Graphene and 2D Materials
Symposium 5: 2D and 3D Printing and Nanotechnology
