Nanotechnology experts from around the world, who use innovation in materials science to create advanced technologies and solutions for the environment, energy, and health sectors, will congregate in Newcastle Australia for the third International Conference on Emerging Advanced Nanomaterials (ICEAN).

With one million nanometers in every millimeter, nanotechnology intends to engineer useful machines, materials, or solutions of the atomic and molecular scale—products that measure around 100 nm in size.

Hosted by the University of Newcastle’s Global Innovative Centre for Advanced Nanomaterials (GICAN) and co-organized by EWHA Woman’s University, South Korea, Yokohama National University, Japan, and Qatar University, the conference will unite together over 550 research experts from more than 20 different countries including USA, China, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, Vietnam, New Zealand, Canada, Qatar, India, and Saudi Arabia.
