Dear Colleagues!

We are pleased to invite you to attend International research and practice conference "Nanotechnology and nanomaterials", that will be held in one of the main cultural centres of today's Ukraine - Lviv, August 24 to 27, 2016.

International Research and Practice Conference "Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials" will be organised for the fifth time. It is a large-scale event, which every year becomes larger and more important. In 2012 International Research and Practice Conference was held for the first time in the format of International Summer School for young scientists "Nanotechnology: from fundamental research to innovations". In 2013 and 2014 International Scientific and Practical Conference "Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials" was held in conjunction with the International Summer School for young scientists "Nanotechnology: from fundamental research to innovations": the first 4 days were held as the Summer School, the next 4 as International Conference. The International Summer School and International Conference in 2013 were attended by more than 300 scientists, and in 2014 they gathered more than 450 participants from about 20 countries, such as Poland, Italy, Estonia, France, Austria, Germany, Greece, Turkey, USA, Romania, Moldova, Czech Republic, Taiwan, Lithuania, Egypt, Iran, India, Algeria, Indonesia and others. Also there were Ukrainian participants actually from all over Ukraine. In 2015, the International Research and Practice Conference "Nanotechnologies and Nanomaterials" expanded its theme and gathered more than 500 participants from 20 countries.

We invite to take part in the conference all scientists making research in the field of nanotechnology and nanomaterials as well as in the fields combining different scientific directions.

During the conference there will made plenary sessions, oral speeches and poster presentations.

The conference will bring together leading scientists and researchers from different countries of the world.

This event will focuse on the latest advances in nanosciences and nanotechnologies and promotes profound scientific discussions between scientists and researchers from different disciplines and countries.

Thematic priorities of the conference will be the following:

One of the focuses of the International research and practice conference "Nanotechnology and nanomaterials" is Possibilities in the participation in Horizon 2020 Programme of EU.

International conference is held by the Institute of Physics of NAS of Ukraine and partners:

Working language: English.

Conference hall will be located in the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv.
