The ATOM BY ATOM Conference is an initiative hosted by the Nanoscience Cooperative Research Centre NANOGUNE and the Donostia International Physics Center, DIPC, whose purpose is to establish a fluent and permanent dialogue between science and society, between scientists and citizens, to help boost social and scientific progress in a free and tolerant intellectual environment.
The ATOM BY ATOM Conference has been divided into two complementary sections: one geared towards the international scientific community under the title NANO2009 and a plenary section focused on the general public.
The plenary section will feature a number of lectures addressing an extensive range of topics that are highly relevant for society and in which nanotechnology is expected to have a big impact on electronics, health, new materials, photonics, etc. Plenary lectures will be given in the afternoon and will be open to the general public. In order to simplify organisational matters, please register here free of charge.
NANO2009 will unfold as an international scientific conference and has been rated as a continuation of the ‘Perspectives in nanoscience and nanotechnology – NANO2006’ workshop held in Donostia – San Sebastián in September 2006. It is aimed at the international nanoscience and nanotechnology scientific community and has been divided into six sessions dealing with nanomagnetism, nanooptics, self-assembly, nanobiotechnology, nanodevices as well as theory and simulation in the nanoscale. Admission to NANO2009 is only for researchers and lecturers. Register for NANO2009.
