Sumy State University & IEEE Nanotechnology Council Hold Online International Conference “Nanomaterials: Applications & Properties”

Like most conferences these days the 2020 IEEE International Conference on "Nanomaterials: Applications & Properties" (NAP-2020), hosted by Sumy State University and organized together with the IEEE Nanotechnology Council, was held online.

The five-day virtual event (Nov. 9-13) - one of the largest nanoconferences in Eastern Europe, held annually since 2011 - brought together a broad international community of scientists, engineers, and educators and provided a platform for exchanging ideas, strengthening existing collaborations and catalyzing new international partnerships.

There were more than 200 participants from 31 countries, including the USA, Japan, China, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Israel, Austria, Poland, South Korea, Canada, Singapore, and others. Representatives of Finland, the Philippines, and Serbia took part in the conference for the first time.

The rich program included talks by international speakers as well as four e-poster sessions:

  1. Nanomagnetism and Spin Waves & Spin Currents
  2. Nanomaterials for Biomedical Applications and Energy
  3. Nanomaterials Synthesis and Thin Films & Coatings
  4. Interdisciplinary & Miscellaneous Topics)

Thanks to grants from the IEEE Magnetics Society and the USUF Biotech Initiative, about 20 grants were provided to young scientists in different categories.

One of the organizers of the conference was Maksym Pogorielov, who was recognized as an Emerging Leader in Biotech 2018 by the US-Ukraine Foundation.

The conference proceedings will be published and indexed by Scopus and Web of Science Core Collection.

The organizers hope to see everyone in beautiful Odesa for NAP 2021, which is scheduled to be held on September 5-11, 2021 at the GAGARINN hotel. Stay tuned by joining their Facebook and LinkedIn pages.

The NAP2020 Conference is devoted to the most interesting aspects of modern Materials Science with the prime focus on nanoscale materials. Although nanoscience and nanotechnology are still in their infancy, this rapidly evolving field of research is quickly transforming almost all aspects of our everyday life. From the low power electronics and supercomputers, to advanced drugs and personalized medicine, from new industrial applications, and renewable energy to advanced transportation and clean air technologies, nanoscience is the foundation of many of the transformational discoveries in the decades to come.
