1.1. Call for abstracts / papers

ITIMS, International Training Institute for Materials ScienceOn the occasion of the 20th Anniversary of The International Training Institute for Materials Science - ITIMS, of Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST), ITIMS will hold an International Conference on Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology in Hanoi (ICAMN) from 13-th to 14-th of December, 2012. The Conference will provide a forum for scientists worldwide to exchange their research progress in the various exciting areas of advanced materials including synthesis and characterizations of advanced bulk and nano-scale dimensional materials, as well as on the nanotechnologies and applications. The Conference also aims to provide a possibility for exchange of experiences of international collaboration in these fields.Authors are invited to submit their abstracts/papers in the fields of nanomaterials, nanotechnology and applications. Topics to be covered at the Conference include but are not limited as follows:

  • Nanostructured magnetic materials, functional ferroelectrics and piezoelectrics
    This section focuses on nanostructured magnetic materials and functional oxide materials with highlight on some applications, such as data storage, electronics and biomedicines. The topics of interest in this section include, but are not limited to, spintronics, magneto-optics, magnetic recording, hard and soft magnets; ferroelectrics, piezoelectrics and multiferroics.

  • Nanostructured semiconducting and hybrid materials, nanophotonics
    This section focuses on nanostructured semiconducting and hybrid materials, nanophotonics with the emphasis on applications, such as chemical sensors, light control, energy conversion and storage, optical sensing. The topics to be covered include, but are not limited to, advanced materials for luminescence, organic LED, photo-electrochemical energy system and solar cells, polymers and organic/inorganic hybrids; novel photonic materials, near-field optics, fiber lasers, quantum confined systems.

  • Nanotechnologies and Applications
    Modern Condensed Matter Physics nowadays deals with nanotechnology, i.e. the processing, characterization and utilization of materials, devices, and systems with dimensions on the order of nanometres, exhibiting novel and significantly enhanced physical, chemical, and biological properties, functions, phenomena, and processes due to their nanoscale size. The topics include, but are not limited to, synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials and Nano devices (including MEMS, NEMS) for environmental, biomedical, electronic and process, industrial applications, current challenges in nanotechnology, sustainable development of nanotechnology, and policy issues addressing nanotechnology.

1.2. Who may participate?

Scientists, engineers and students working in the above areas are all invited to take part in this conference to exchange latest information, progress and future development on nanomaterials, nanodevices, nanotechnology and applications. Especially, this conference also provides an opportunity for alumni students of ITIMS (former PhD and MSc. Student) to exchange their research in the field of materials science and nanotechnology.

1.3. Conference venue

ICAMN 2012 will be held in Hanoi University of Science and Technology, No. 1 Dai Co Viet, Hanoi, Vietnam. As the capital of Vietnam for almost a thousand years, Hanoi is considered one of the main cultural center of Vietnam, where most Vietnamese dynasties have left their imprint. Even though some relics have not survived through wars and time, the city still has many interesting cultural and historic monuments for visitors and residents alike. From the Noibai international airport, you can take a taxi (Airport taxi and Noibai taxi) to hotels in Hanoi. The distance is about 30 kilometers and the fare is around US$ 20. In December, the temperature in Hanoi during the day time is around 20oC. From Hanoi, it takes about four hours by bus to reach Halong Bay, a UNESCO World heritage site.
