Recent advances in nanoscience and nanotechnology have opened up many opportunities for applications and commercialization. Nanotechnology's ability to manipulate atoms and molecules enables us to create nanoscale materials and novel device structures with fundamentally new properties and unprecedented functions. Nanotechnology is anticipated to dramatically change every aspect of our lives. Among the diverse and interdisciplinary nature of nanoscience, nanochemistry, nanobiology, and nanobiomedicine are prominent areas attracting wide attention. These areas not only address novel chemical methods to make unprecedented functional nanomaterials, but also will have a pronounced impact on better health and longer life spans of the future world population through improved sensors, diagnostic tools, and treatments.

This conference aims to provide a forum for researchers, scientists, and engineers from different countries worldwide who are actively involved in the research on nanoscience and nanotechnology, in particular nanobiology, nanobiomedicine, and nanochemistry relating to biosensing, implantable biomedical devices, catalysis and energy issues to disseminate their latest research results and development achievements.

In addition to the exciting scientific and technological themes, the conference offers a platform to promote and encourage interaction among researchers for cross-fertilization of ideas and collaboration. The program will consist of a combination of invited, contributed oral, and poster presentations.

Scientific sessions will cover the following topics, among others:

Basic properties of biological/solid state interfaces
Biocompatibility of inorganic nanoparticles
Quantum dots as sensors
Optical methods in biochemistry and medicine
Specific biosensors based on optoelectronic and transistor devices
Single molecule detection
Interaction with living cells and cell tissue
New concepts and applications in biomedical sensing
