Nanomaterials - namely materials showing unique size-dependent or mesoscopic properties - have attracted considerable attention during the past several years owing to their interesting chemistry, unique properties and potential applications in fields such as life-sciences, energy harvesting, telecommunication and others. The focus of the conference will be on the preparation and exploitation of nanomaterials.
World reknowned experts on various aspects of this very broad and rapidly emerging area have been invited. The program will be interesting for beginners and experts in the field as well as industries already active or interested in these materials.
Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:

* Synthesis methods for the preparation of nanomaterials (including up-scaling)
* Modification of nanomaterials (e.g. surface functionalisation of colloidal nanoparticles)
* Characterisation and exploitation of optical, electrochemical, catalytical and other properties
* Nanomaterial-based devices
* Application of nanomaterials in life-sciences
* Self-assembly

Chair: Thomas Nann (University of East Anglia)
