The ‘Perspectives in nanoscience and nanotechnology – NANO2009’ workshop follows the successful ‘Perspectives in nanoscience and nanotechnology – NANO2006’ workshop that was celebrated on September 4-6 2006 in San Sebastian. The NANO2006 workshop was organised by the Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC), being Jose M Pitarke the chairman, with the aim of assessing the state of the art in the understanding of nanoscale physics, chemistry, engineering, biology, and medicine. The workshop coincided with the beginning of the activities of the Nanoscience Cooperative Research Center nanoGUNE and served as a first introduction of nanoGUNE to the international nanoscience and nanotechnology research community. Since then nanoGUNE has been working on the design and construction of a new building with state-of-the-art facilities for nanoscience research and on the launching of five research groups in different topics of nanoscience. On December 1 2008, nanoGUNE celebrated ‘Day One’: the occupancy of the new building and the incorporation of the five group leaders, which represented an starting point of a new period of activity. On January 30 2009, the official opening of nanoGUNE took place. NANO2009 aims to be a multidisciplinary workshop that reviews the state of the art in the fields of nanomagnetism, nanooptics, self-assembly, nanobiotechnology, nanodevices and theory and simulation at the nanoscale. It will also give access to the knowledge and advice from leader scientists in these fields. NANO2009 will foster discussion on emerging applications with potentially significant impact for the materials, electronic, photonics, and life-science industries, and debate about the current strategy and perspectives in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.
