As globalization leads to increasing interaction among regions and peoples of the world, it is important to encourage multi-disciplinarity in emerging scientific topics such as nanotechnology. Nanotechnology, even though rapidly growing, is still in its infancy and has given rise to numerous novel applications for the solution of many current problems.
The aim of ICNFA'13 is to bring together the Canadian and International community working in the field of nanotechnology, and to foster an environment conducive to present advances in this field. This conference will also provide a golden opportunity to develop new collaborations and gather world nanotechnology experts on the fundamentals, applications and products. Through the 4th conference a great opportunity to share knowledge and expertise will be created taking advantage from the synergy of the previous conferences. The ICNFA'13 program will include invited keynote talks, oral presentation sessions, and poster sessions.
After successfully holding the first, second, and third conferences, International ASET Inc. will be hosting this conference in Toronto next year at Ryerson University.
ICNFA'13 is now accepting papers on the following topics through its OpenConf system. Shall you have a paper on an additional topic, please write an email to ICNFA2013@International-ASET.com. The current topics include but are not limited to:
Modeling and Simulation
- Nanomaterials, Nanodevices: Fabrication, Characterization and Application
- Nanomedical Applications: Drug Delivery, and Tissue Engineering
- Nanotechnology and Agriculture
- Nanotechnology and Coating
- Nanotechnology and Education
- Nanotechnology and Energy
- Nanotechnology and Environment
- Nanotechnology and Polymer
- Nanotechnology, Products and Markets
- Societal aspects of Nanotechnology: Ethics, Risk Assessment, Standardization
Manuscripts are invited for the International Conference on Nanotechnology: Fundamentals and Applications on topics lying within the scope of the conference. All contributions must be original and should not have been published elsewhere. Two types of papers could be published in the conference proceedings:
You may choose to submit either type based on the the weight of the contributions in your manuscript. Short papers must give a clear indication of the objectives, scope, and results of the paper, and must at least contain an abstract, an introduction, a results/discussion, and a reference section. Short papers are limited to 4 pages.
Full Papers are limited to 8 pages and are more descriptive of the work that you have done. Also, more sections, images, graphs, and results could be presented.
Please note that a .doc template is available to guide the authors in formatting their papers (Full Papers). For short papers similar formatting must be used.
Papers should be prepared in English and carefully checked for correct grammar. Figures should be of high quality. To ensure high scientific quality, all papers will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee Members. All papers must be submitted in electronic form using the web site of the conference.
Once the reviewing process is complete, the contact author of each paper will be notified of the result by e-mail. The authors are required to follow the reviews in order to improve their paper before their final submission.
All accepted full papers and short papers will be published in the proceedings, under an ISBN reference in a DVD-ROM support. Selected papers will be published in a special issue of an open access journal. More information will become available soon.
All papers must be presented by one of the authors. At least one author must register for the conference and pay the fee prior to July 15, 2013 in order for the paper to be published in the conference proceedings and retained in the final program.
