An International Conference on Recent Trends in Nanostructured Materials and Their Applications (ICRNM-2008) is being organized by the Department of Physics,Osmania University, India from December 19-20, 2008. The control of matter at nano-scale is the foundation of wide range of modern technologies which underpin many aspects of
modern life, therefore the main objective of this conference is to provide a platform for scientists and engineers working in the area of nanomaterials to disseminate their latest research results, allow cross disciplinary
exchange of knowledge and show case their latest inventions and innovations.Plenary and invited talks will be delivered by leading researchers in the field, on most recent developments in the areas of synthesis and
characterization of nano-structured materials. Electronic, Optical, Magnetic and Thermal properties determined by nano-scale features will be presented by various researchers in the form oral/poster presentations.

Topics :
Synthesis of nanomaterials
Nanostructured thin films
Characterization and Exploitation of Optical, Magnetic, Electrical
and Thermal properties of nanostructures
Nanophotonics and Spintronics
Nanobiological applications and sensors

Hyderabad City:
Hyderabad, the capital city of Andhra Pradesh is a busting 400-year-old metropolis with
an approxima te urban population of 4.2 million
people. Hyderabad is the creation of the Qutub Shahi rulers and it is located on the Deccan Plateau, besides the Musi river; 650 mts above the sea level. The physiography of Hyderabad is dominated by hills, monuments, tanks,
forests, mosques and temples; with a rich and varied heritage in arts, crafts, and rock formations. This old and culturally rich city is now fast emerging as the center for all information technology related activities in
India. The city has an unique, specially created place for IT and related companies called the Hi-tech City, which hosts the who's who of the world IT industry. In fact, Hyderabad has been selected by the Microsoft Corporation to have its only software development center outside the USA. It is also
rapidly growing in the field of Entertainment. After Mumbai, Hyderabad is emerging as a center of activities related to the Film Industry. The city presents an attractive amalgamation of ancient & modern architecture; to name a few which are great attractions for the tourists. Charminar,Golconda Fort, Qutub Shahi Tombs, Salarjung Museum, Falaknuma Palace, Mecca Masjid, Hussain Sagar ( Tank Bund), Lumbini Park, Public Gardens (Bagh-e-aam), Naubat Pahad, Birla Mandir, Bilrla Planetarium, Purani Haveli,Osmania University, Film City, Hi-tech City, etc. Today, Hyderabad has emerged as the training capital of India, having the largest number of training centres. Hyderabad continues to welcome visitors with an old world charm so rare today. There is music in the language and a gentleness of life that permeates beyond Hyderabad's industrial boom. The city is also well connected by Air, Rail and Road to other cities in India and directly to international destinations including Europe, America and South East Asia.

Osmania University:
Founded in 1918 by the Seventh Nizam of Hyderabad, Nawab Mir Osman Ali Khan, the Osmania University is the seventh oldest institution of higher learning in India and the third oldest in South India; and the first to be established in the erstwhile princely State of Hyderabad. For almost nine decades, it has sustained an integrated development of all faculties. It has contributed to the academic, social and economic development of the region and the nation as a whole. Its alumni have distinguished themselves nationally and internationally. After the State of A.P. was formed in 1956, Osmania University emerged as the largest university in the state and the country. Osmania iversity is a pioneering institution, which was recently re-accreditated by NationalAssessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) with the "A+" grade.

The university is in service of the Nation by providing accessible, affordable and meaningful education to nearly three lakh students in the State of Andhra Pradesh.

The typical daytime temperature of Hyderabad in December ranges from 12 degrees Centigrade to to 15 degrees Centigrade.
