23 - 25 October 2013, Ljubljana, Slovenia, Jožef Stefan Institute


The final word

With over 120 registered participants, we can proudly say that SLONANO 2009 was a success. We once again thank all the contributors for their interesting presentations and hope to see you next year at SLONANO 2010.


SLONANO conferences have been organised annually since 2002, so that SLONANO 2009 represents the eighth in the row. The basic idea of the conference remains the same: To foster the rapid exchange of results, ideas and know-how in the field of nanotechnology. In particular, young scientists are strongly encouraged to present their work.





SLONANO 2009 will concentrate on two major topics "Nanomaterials for Energy Storage and Conversion" and "BioNanotechnology" . Nevertheless, the organisers are happy to receive contributions on any aspects of nanotechnology, from fundamental research to industrial applications. There will be invited talks, oral presentations (selected by the Organizing committee), and a poster session.
