Nanoparticles and Nanoporous Materials for Environment and Energy Applications (NANMEEA)
Venue: Crowne Plaza Coogee Beach
|Event Date/Time: Jan 28, 2004||End Date/Time: Jan 30, 2004|
A 3-day workshop is being held in Sydney Australia for prominent scientists and engineers to discuss cutting edge issues and technologies associated with advanced nanomaterials, particularly on nanoparticles and nanoporous materials for sustainable environment and energy applications.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Nanoparticles and nanoporous materials are an exciting new branch of nanoscale science and technology. Current research shows their proclivity for improved properties and unique functionalities such as high surface area, nanosize and quantum confinement effects, ordered porosity and high adsorbing and sensing abilities.
The 3-day workshop will focus exclusively on the latest advances in nanomaterials for applications in environmental and energy technologies. The workshop will comprise of morning seminar sessions, to be delivered by prominent national and international speakers, followed by afternoon forums aimed at discussing current issues associated with the state of the art.
University academics, research scientists/engineers, government policy makers, strategic management from industry and persons active in the fields of fine particle technology, energy and the environment are all welcome to attend.
