Physics Nobel Prize winner Z. Alferov at ICONN2012

September 2011

alferov Call for abstracts is now open for the next International Conference on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICONN 2012) to be held in Perth, WA in February 2012. On this occasion, the conference is being co-organised and co-located with the Asia-Pacific Microscopy Conference (APMC-10) and the Australian Conference on Microscopy and Microanalysis (ACMM-22).

The event will include four days of a variety of short courses and hands-on workshops on nanofabrication and characterization techniques with Australian National Fabrication Facility as the patron of a full day workshop on nanofabrication technologies. This combined event will be the largest nanotechnology and microscopy related event in Australia's history.

Over 2,000 delegates, from more than 30 nations are expected to provide a unique science and technology forum. The traditional scientific programs of each Conference will be run parallel with some joined sessions, and delegates may attend any they choose. Concurrent major equipment exhibitions (100 booths!) and social events will be fully shared, to enable our communities to network extensively.

Confirmed plenary speakers include the winner of the 2000 Nobel Prize in Physics, Zhores Alferov; the winner of the 2011 Wolf Prize in Physics, Knut Urban; and a 2010 top 100 most-cited researcher in nanotechnology, Frank Caruso.

Substantial registration and travel support is made available for eligible PhD students and early carreer researchers by the organising committee. You can find more details at the ICONN2012 website -
