***SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT of STUDENT TRAVEL SUPPORT***

FNANO has received $12,000 from NSF for student travel support (providing approx. $200/student).

 

FNANO Conference OVERVIEW:

This is a yearly conference on the foundations of nanoscience, maintaining the highest scientific standards and providing many opportunities for discussion and informal exchange of information and questions.  Key topics include experimental and theoretical studies of self-assembled architectures and devices, at scales ranging from nano-scale to meso-scale. Self-assembly is a central but not exclusive theme: the conference covers a broad range of research into synthetic and natural nanoscale structures, devices and systems.

FNANO spans many traditional disciplines including chemistry, biochemistry, physics, computer science, mathematics, and engineering. Information on the prior 13 years’ Conferences on Foundations of Nanoscience can be viewed at the archive web site (FNANO04, FNANO05, FNANO06, FNANO07, FNANO08, FNANO09, FNANO10FNANO11, FNANO12, FNANO13, FNANO14, FNANO15, FNANO16 and FNANO17).  The 15th Conference on Foundations of Nanoscience (FNANO18) will have a mixture of invited talks by distinguished scientists as well as contributed posters and open discussion periods to enhance attendee interaction with the goal of creating vibrant intellectual community in the areas of nanoscience and self-assembly. 

ANNUAL PRIZE AWARDS: The Nanoscience Prize recognizes life-long achievements by a researcher working in any area of nanoscience. Also, the Robert Dirks Molecular Programming Prize recognizes exceptional early-career achievement by a researcher working in any area of molecular programming. The winners of these prizes will be awarded during an evening session of the upcoming FNANO18 conference and be invited to give prize lectures at FNANO18.

We often include a special track on a topic of emerging interest to the community of nanoscience.
