WELCOME ADDRESS FROM THE CHAIRMAN
Dear friends and colleagues,
On behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to invite you to participate in the 9th Asian Conference on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, 2018 (AsiaNANO 2018), which will be held between October 18-21, 2018 in Qingdao, China. This is the ninth conference in a series of Asian Conferences on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, which was initiated by Professors Masatsugu Shimomura, Zhongfan Liu, and Haiwon Lee.
The 1st conference was held in Tokyo, Japan in 2002, the 2nd in Beijing, China in 2004, the 3rd in Busan, Korea in 2006, the 4th in Biopolis, Singapore in 2008, the 5th in Tokyo, Japan in 2010, and the 6th in Lijiang, China in 2012. As the years have gone by, following the successful AsiaNANO 2014 in Jeju, Korea, and 2016 in Sapporo, Japan, this conference series has become a more and more important academic international exchange symposium for nanoscience and nanotechnology research. This year 2018, the conference has returned to Qingdao, China starting its 3rd round in Asia.
AsiaNANO 2018 is intended to stimulate discussions on the forefront of research in nanoscience and nanotechnology. The conference will focus on atom catalysis and nanocatalysis, nanoscale energy conversion and storage, carbon nanomaterials, advanced 2D materials and applications, nano-bio interface and medical nanoscience, info-nano science and technologies, nanoscale in-situ characterization, environmental and bio-safety aspects of nanotechnologies, analytical nanoscience and technologies, nano-biomaterials and nano-biomedical engineering as well as nanoenergy technologies and nanosensor systems.
We sincerely hope that the scope of the conference will serve the interest of the scientific community, as well as the industry and the general public. I wish to extend a warm welcome to all participants and sponsors of the event.
Looking forward to meeting you in Qingdao in 2018.
