International Symposium on Nanotechnology in Construction
(Nanowerk News) The 3rd International Symposium on Nanotechnology in Construction will be held in Prague from May 31 to June 2, 2009. The symposium is organized by the Czech Technical University. Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is a romantic city with a uniquely preserved historic core. The symposium venue will be the Faculty of Civil Engineering on the easily accessible Dejvice campus of the Czech Technical University. The NICOM 3 Symposium follows the highly successful NICOM 1 (Paisley, UK 2003) and NICOM 2 (Bilbao, Spain 2005) Symposia.
Who should attend?
The Symposium will be of interest not only to academics and material scientists but also to industrial experts, manufacturers, research planning and supporting authorities and R&D representatives. Participation will also benefit anyone who wishes to get informed about up-to-date achievements and perspectives of nanotechnology in construction for strategic planning and investment. It will be a cross-disciplinary event, bringing together R&D experts and users from different fields; all with interest in nanotechnology and construction, but who may not normally meet.
The Symposium will cover three days of the scientific programme. Presentations by speakers including international experts from academia, industry and funding agencies will be complemented by a poster session. Facilities for exhibiting nanotechnology related products and services will be also available. Programme of activities for accompanying persons will be offered. All presented contributions will be published in printed Symposium proceedings in full (published by Springer-Verlag).
The official language for all contributions will be English.
