[Topical Areas][Format][Conference Site][Important Dates]
It is our pleasure to invite you to Hindås outside Göteborg and to participate in the workshop "Nanostructured Materials Made from Self-Assembled Molecules and Particles" to be held the 8-10th of January 2001, with registration and a reception the evening before. Nanostructured materials research has gained enormously in interest during the last 15 years due to the rapid developments of nanometer-resolution analytical tools and techniques for nano-fabrication. There is presently a large interest in the science and technology of, e.g. catalytic, magnetic, electrical, optical, and thermal properties of nanostructured materials. Methods for the preparation and processing of nanostructured materials are being developed around the world based on physical, mechanical and chemical routes. This meeting will be on preparative techniques using self-assembly of molecules and small particles.
The list of topics has been limited to the following technologically important areas.
Nanoparticle synthesis from micelles and microemulsions
Self assembly of colloidal particles
Synthesis of nano and mesoporous materials
Soft lithographic patterning methods
Nanostructured thin films
The symposium will include invited and contributed oral presentations, as well as a poster session. The official language of all communications will be English. To ensure an informal character of the meeting, the number of participants will be limited to 100. The symposium fee amounts to 3700 Swedish kronor (ca. US $440) and includes three hotel nights, reception, and all meals during the 2.5 days meeting, abstract booklet, and airport transportation. A book with 3-page abstracts will be printed and handed out to the participants at the start of the meeting, and there will be no proceedings published.
Hindås is located outside Göteborg on the West Coast of Sweden where the weather in January usually is between -5 and +5 °C with a fair chance of snow. The meeting will be held at Hjortviken conference centre, which is nicely located next to a small lake, within a ten minutes drive from the Landvetter airport.
