Call for Papers

1. Nanomaterials Synthesis & Self-assembly

This track solicits experimental, theoretical and computational works on synthesis and self-assembly of 1D, 2D and 3D nanostructures. One example is nanoelectronic materials, particularly nanocrystals and nanowires, where it is possible to realize unique functionality by engineering the dimensionality of the building blocks. Another area of interest for this section deals with composite materials, such as metal-, carbon-, ceramic- and polymer-based nanocomposites, and polymeric materials, including nanoparticles, nanospheres and nanocapsules that offer excellent surface to volume ratio, and can be combined with inorganic materials to offer even greater functionality due to responsiveness to external stimuli (pH, temperature, light, electric or magnetic fields).  While the main focus of this track is the preparation techniques, structure, and properties, the works primarily dealing with practical applications should be submitted to more specialized Tracks (e.g. "nanomedicine", "photonics", and "energy"), when appropriate.

Main Topics:

- New routes for synthesis of "building blocks";
- Size-, shape- and composition-dependent properties;
- Top-down and bottom-up approached for self-assembly;
- Block-co-polymers, interfacial science and morphology control;
- Micro- and nano-encapsulation, coatings, diffusion and controlled release technology;
- Nanocomposites and nanohybrids;
- Theory and modeling of the formation, evolution, and self-organization of nanoscale systems.

2. Thin Films & Coatings

This track is devoted to the most recent advances in chemical and physical methods for thin film deposition, surface engineering, including ion- and plasma-assisted processes, focusing on the understanding of synthesis/processing-structure-properties relationship for a variety of thin film systems.

Main Topics:

- Advances in deposition techniques;
- Thin film growth & epitaxy: theory & experiments;
- New materials in thin film form: diamond-like films, granular alloys, high entropy alloys, oxynitrides, intermetallic compounds;
- Hard, wear-, oxidation-resistant and multifunctional coatings;
- Advances in nanomaterials and surface characterization tools and techniques;
- Electroless deposition;
-Electrochemical (electrolytic plasma processing, plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposition, plasma electrolytic oxidation) deposition;
- Industrial applications.

3. Nanoscale Imaging & Characterization

The Track is devoted to consideration of physical and chemical phenomena that occur at the interface of two phases, including solid–liquid interfaces, solid–gas interfaces, solid–vacuum interfaces, and liquid–gas interfaces. Both experimental and theoretical work, including modeling, is within the scope of the track. It welcomes a broad spectrum of topics, including but not limited to:

- Nanoscale science and engineering, including manipulation of matter at the atomic/molecular scale and assembly phenomena;
- Interactions at surfaces of soft matter, including polymers and biomaterials;
- Electrochemistry at surfaces and interfaces;
- Optical, scanning probe, X-ray, ion- and electron microscopy;
- Semiconductors – surface and interface;
- Electromigration in nanocontacts.

4. Nanophotonics

This track is devoted to optical properties of nanomaterials, including nanophotonics, the area of research that is focused on understanding of light interaction with nanoscale materials. While in classical optics the diffraction limit prevents one from being able to manipulate light at sub-wavelength scales, in the nanophotonics this can be achieved by coupling to propagating and localizing surface plasmons, using nanoscale antennas and apertures, as well as exploiting the interplay between the far- and near-fields in scanning probe microscopes and optical tweezers. Of special interest are nanomaterials-enables detectors and imaging systems, operating from X-rays and UV-VIS, to THz and RF waves.

Main Topics:

- Plasmonic structures and quantum dots;
- Nanophotonics and optical manipulation;
- Spectroscopic studies of nanoscale materials;
- Molecular energy transfer and light harvesting;
- Photonic and optoelectronic materials and devices;
- Photodetectors, sensors and imaging;
- Microwave optics and devices, including superconducting and single photon detectors;
- Quantum information science.

5. Transport Properties in Nanoscale Systems

Central to the understanding of the properties of nanoscale structures is the understanding of the transport phenomena relevant to systems of nanoscale dimensions. This track focuses on:
- Molecular scale electronics;
- Transport properties in 2D materials;
- Nanocircuitry and nanowires;
