Engineered nanocomposites and nanoparticles, with their extraordinary physicochemical and unique electronic properties, have garnered much attention in recent years. With a broad range of potential applications, including nanoelectronics, composites, chemical sensors, renewable energy, biosensors, microscopy, nanoelectromechanical systems, and much more, the scientific community is more motivated than ever to move beyond basic properties and explore the real issues associated with nano-based applications.  They are exceptionally interesting from a fundamental research point of view and open up new perspectives for various applications.

The high priority of nanotechnology makes it important to sustain research, development and modeling of nanomaterials for applications. This symposium intends to focus on the latest advances in the development of new or improved nanomaterials in the fundamental understanding of the physical/chemical/biological phenomena at the origin of the mechanism. Contributions that essentially deal with advanced synthesis and characterization of all nanomaterials and nanocomposites are among the topics of interest to this symposium.

The scope of this symposium is also to bring together experts in the fields of nanomaterials development mentioned above. The conference should give the state-of-the-art in these fields, show advantages and disadvantages of the different techniques and reveal still remaining nanomaterial issues to be solved.
