Following the great success of ACIN2011 and spurred on by the enthusiasm of the participants at ACIN2011, the organising committee would like to extend a cordial invitation to all researchers with an interest in advanced complex inorganic nanomaterials, to participate in the second International Conference on Advanced Complex Inorganic Nanomaterials (ACIN 2013) that will be held in Belgium from 15th to 19th July 2013.
ACIN 2013 is a four day scientific meeting jointly organised by the University of Namur (FUNDP) and the Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL).
The aim of this meeting is to offer an update of recent innovations in both fundamental and applied aspects and to highlight the latest advances and progress in the field of inorganic nanomaterials (inorganics, ceramics, hybrids and bio-inspired materials). We encourage researchers to submit an abstract of their most recent work related to all fields of Inorganic Nanomaterials such as:
Advanced preparation methods to Advanced Complex Inorganic Nanomaterials and cutting edge characterization techniques: New precursors, new methods, new processing and shaping and fundamental aspects of synthesis: sol-gel technology, self-assembly, templating, artificial integration, encapsulation, immobilisation, functionalisation, layer-by-layer, ship-in-bottle, etc.
Nanomaterials, functional porous materials, coordination networks, bio-inspired nanomaterials, hybrid nanomaterials and living materials: Nanostructures, nanoparticles, nanotubes, ceramics, membranes, films, self-assembly, supramolecular systems, co-ordination polymers, zeolites, MOFs, mesoporous materials, hierarchically structured materials, carbons, natural materials, bioinspired and biomimetic materials, biomineralisation and biotemplating, bio-integrated materials, biocomposites, organometalics, green materials for construction, inorganic switches etc.
New applications and new properties: Catalysis, photocatalysis, sensors, gas storage, magnetism, photomagnetism, spin crossover, optics, photochromism, conductivity, superconductivity, fuel cells, (DS)solar cells, batteries, supercapacitors, artificial photosynthesis, CO2 photoreduction, water splitting, thermal energy to electricity and storage etc.
The emphasis will be put on interdisciplinarity and on future directions (New trends). The organisers would also like to make this meeting a discussion forum between scientists and those who would like to become acquainted with new developments, perspectives and applications of nano-materials.
