About the conference
Advances in nanomaterials are an emerging platform to improve and meet the challenges in the field of energy, electronics, environment and healthcare. Nanomaterials ranging from polymers, semiconductors, crystals and nanoparticles have gained importance as a thrust area of research and development due to their unique electrical, optical and magnetic properties. Nanomaterial sciences comprises of theoretical and experimental aspects of chemistry, physics, nanotechnology and biology. The nanomaterials research has led to progress in surface coatings technology, solar cells, photonics, sensors applications, thin solid films and thin film applications. The advanced nanomaterials are receiving worldwide attention as their integration into biology has revolutionized the development of biomedical devices and implants, live cell imaging and diagnosis, microfluidics and nanofluidics, targeted drug delivery and controlled release, gene delivery and therapy. They are also increasingly used in addressing the challenges in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering for the treatment of disease and injury. Nanomaterials are also playing a key role in safe food production and food processing from farm to plate; and as innovative tools in agriculture for sustainable development. The conference on nanomaterials will be a multidisciplinary forum for discussions and deliberations on bridging the gap between fundamental laboratory research and its application in engineering, biology, food industry and medicine.
The two days international conference will see the convergence of material science and biological sciences. The conference will bring together the scientific community of Physicists, Chemists and Biologists to discuss the latest developments in the processing and characterization nanomaterials and the challenges in their application for engineering solutions and in biomedical field. Eminent scientists will share their expertise with young researchers to promote the research in basic and advanced applied aspects of nanomaterials. The keynote and invited talks with plenary and technical sessions spanning for two days will see the exchange of knowledge and information on recent advances and ongoing trends in the nanomaterials and their applications. It will be a great opportunity for interaction and collaboration between the academia and industry to extend the lab and pilot scale research in the nanomaterials to develop into innovative and cutting edge technology for real deployment and solutions.
This conference will have sessions covering all aspects on synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials and nanotechnology, and their applications in engineering, biomedicine and biotechnology.
The sessions will include topics on,
Synthesis of nanostructured materials with enhanced properties.
