1) “Nanocarbon Based Materials: Growth and Applications”
Chairperson(s): Professor W. I. Milne, University of Cambridge, UK, Professor Werner Blau, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland

This session will be devoted to the science and technology of nanocarbon based materials. It will cover experimental and theoretical investigations of the electronic properties of e.g. fullerenes, carbon nanotubes and graphene. Topics will include growth and fabrication methods, theoretical modelling, electrical and optical characterization, electronic transport and spintronics, as well as various potential electronic and optical applications of these materials. 

2) "Nanomaterials: Synthesis, Characterization & Applications"

Chairperson(s): Professor Stanislaw Mitura, Koszalin University of Technology, Poland, & Professor Abdelhafed TALEB, University of Pierre & Marie Curie, France 

racted tremendous attention. ‘‘There’s plenty of room at the bottom, the principles of physics, as far as I can see, do not speak against the possibility of maneuvering things atom by atom, put the atoms down where the chemist says, and so you make the substance.’’, this famous statement of legendary Richard Feynman made in 1959 with immense foresight has been realized in less than half a century by consistent efforts and significant contributions from the scientific community across the globe. New thin film and patterning technologies and devices with essential improved performance evoke on account of the development of nanoscience. Novelmaterialsand  extremely small feature sizes provide one of the greatest potentials for improving performance of advanced products and have the potential for wide-ranging industrial, biomedical, and electronic applications. Nanostructures can be divided into zero-dimensional, one-dimensional, and two-dimensional based on their shapes. The recent emphasis in the nanomaterials research is put on 1D nanostructures at the expense of 0D and 2D ones, perhaps due to the intriguing possibility of using them in a majority of short-term future applications. There is a large number of new opportunities that could be realized by down-sizing currently existing structures into the nanometer scale (<100 nm), or by making new types of nanostructures. The most successful examples are seen in the microelectronics, where ‘‘smaller’’ has always indicateda betterperformance ever since the invention of transistors: e.g. higher density of integration, faster response, lower cost, and less power consumption.

As a result of recent improvement in technologies to see and to manipulate these nanoscalematerials, the nanomaterials field has seen a huge increase in funding from private enterprises and government, and academic researchers within the field have formed many partnerships. Nanostructured materials are not only in the forefront of the hottest fundamental materials research nowadays, but they are also gradually intruded into our daily life. To keep up with the evolution in nanoscience and nanotechnology, the organizing committee would like to focus on the following topics during the conference:

  1. Nano-scale thin films and film stacks
  2. Nanoparticles and granulates
  3. Nanoanalysis for failure characterization and quality engineering
  4. Metrology techniques for process control
  5. Applications, innovative products

This event shall provide a platform to bring together scientists, engineers, students and suppliers to discuss current research & applications, and to shape the future of nanoscience and nanotechnologies.


  • 3) "NANOTURKEY - Developments in NANO Science & Technology in Turkey"

Chairperson(s): Professor Hatem AKBULUT, Sakarya University, TURKEY; Dr. Mirac ALAF, Bilecik Seyh Edebali University, TURKEY

The nano era has a huge growing tendency not only on all different scientific disciplines but also in practical applications. This trend is similar in Turkey and in recent years increasing amount of financial funding has been provided and private enterprises for R&D and applications purposes. A number of universities, industrial corporations and research institutions offers significant research outputs from different areas that relate to and can involve nanotechnology.  

This special session will cover all these developments on nanoscience and nanotechnology scale at Turkey. Topics will include a wide ranging field that encompasses many different areas related with nanocomposites, nanocoatings and nanoelectrode materials light weight structures, multifunctional and energy storage materials. 

4) “Catalysis Involving Nanostructured Materials”

Chairperson: Dr Giuseppe Fierro, CNR-ISMN, Italy

The NanoCatalysis session will cover all major and highly important topics and aspects of heterogeneous catalysis. The session will review the current state-of-the-art concerning functional surfaces and nano-structured materials in catalysis as well as presenting novel applications and current challenges and opportunities in this strategic field.
This special session will promote high-tech ideas and will endeavour to provide solutions to the many problems underlying the field of Catalysis. In doing so, the session will provide a platform which will act as a hub for finding international partners for innovative research collaborations and research proposals for European FP Projects. 


5) "Graphene and other novel two-dimensional nanostructures"

Chairperson: Dr M. Aliofkhazraei, Tarbiat Modares University, Iran

Two-dimensional nanostructures present a rich playground for scientists to fabricate new materials with novel and desired properties. Unique properties of graphene, graphene oxide, and other form of carbon derivatives, attract a lot of attentions during recent years.

The aim of this session is to collect the advances being made around the globe in the area of two-dimensional nanostructures, focusing on these topics: 

1) New findings related to size affected properties in two-dimensional nanostructures

2) Fabrication methods of new kinds of two-dimensional nanostructures

3) Innovative approaches in both fabrication methods and characterization of two-dimensional nanostructures

4) Theory, calculations and modeling of two-dimensional nanostructures

5) Advances in usage of two-dimensional nanostructures for new applications
