The MacDiarmid Institute would like to extend a warm welcome to you at the Fifth
International Conference on Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology (AMN-5).
The biennial conference offers a broad interdisciplinary overview of advanced materials
and nanotechnology, and provides an exciting forum to discuss new and exciting
advances in the field.
Technical symposia include:
nanoengineered materials and devices.
nanotube growth and device concepts.
nanoparticle synthesis and applications.
bionano-technologies (including bioMEMs and microfluidics).
conducting polymers and molecular materials.
novel semiconductor materials.
strongly electron correlated materials.
physics of clusters and cluster-based devices.
new materials and devices for radiation imaging and detection.
2011 will be a most auspicious year marking the100th anniversary of the
discovery of superconductivity, and 25 years since high temperature
superconductivity was first observed.
2011 has also been chosen as theInternational Year of Chemistry, IYC2011. This is intended as a worldwide celebration of the achievements of chemistry and its contributions to the well-being of humankind.
We will be marking these events with special sub-themes during the conference. Contributors include Nobel Laureate Professor Sir Anthony Leggett (Illinois), Professor Sir Richard Friend, (Cambridge), Professor Jean Fréchet (Berkeley and LBNL), and Professor Neil W Ashcroft (Cornell).
