The goal of this conference is to bring together the broad, multidisciplinary community of researchers who are interested in the field of nanostructures and the opportunities for future high-impact science and technology related to such field. The Conference will provide a common forum for scientists operating in all the fields of nanostructures from their formation and modelling to their properties and applications. The conference will cover the physics of nanostructures at the nanoscale, new fabrication procedures of nanostructures with well defined size, shape and composition, and also:

large-scale patterning obtained by spontaneous structuring as well as local probe nano-patterning for size and position control of nanostructures;
theoretical and experimental efforts dedicated to a better understanding of the formation, evolution and organisation of nanoscale systems;
fundamental and new issues in nucleation, crystal growth, surface and interface atomistic mechanisms and electronic structure;
optical, electrical, magnetic and mechanical properties representative of the self-assembled systems; Novel properties induced by low scale nanostructures.

Finally, new insights on short-term and future/futuristic device applications will be of prime interest in the framework of this Conference.
