UT Arlington Organizes International Conference on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

June 5, 2008

University of Texas at Arlington Materials Science & Engineering Professor Stathis Meletis, along with associates at Harvard University and Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, has organized the 1st International Conference from Nanoparticles and Nanomaterials to Nanodevices and Nanosystems (IC4N) to be held June 15-19 in Halkidiki, Greece. Presentations at IC4N will address current technologies and future challenging and rewarding research directions as well as identifying barriers to progress.

Nobel Laureate Sir Harry W. Kroto of Florida State University will deliver the plenary lecture. More than 70 distinguished speakers have been confirmed and will be giving keynote lectures and invited talks. Symposia topics address all critical aspects of nanoscience and nanotechnology. World-class researchers from more than 50 countries have already registered for the event.

Nanoscience and nanotechnology have brought an unprecedented excitement to the scientific and engineering communities, especially over the last decade. The recent revolutionary advances in nanoscale phenomena open exciting, new avenues for research and discovery and promise to meet the technological needs of the near future.

The conference will provide a stimulating environment for interaction and foster collaboration among participants. Progress in this field can have a tremendous impact on science and technology and critical global issues such as human health, energy and the environment.

Dr. Meletis, chair of the Materials Science and Engineering Department, is one of the main organizers of IC4N and the conference’s chair. The conference is sponsored by the National Science Foundation. For more details, visit the conference web site:
