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


26 - 28 October, Ljubljana, Slovenia


SLONANO conferences have been organised annually since 2002, so that SLONANO 2011 represents the tenth 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 2011 will concentrate on three major topics "Polymer nanocomposits and related materials", "Surfaces, interfaces thin films and nanostructures" and "Advance characterization techniques on nanoscale" . 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.
SLONANO 2011 proudly announces the collaboration with Jožef Stefan Institute, National Institute of Chemistry, CENN Nanocenter, CE Polimat and University of Nova Gorica School of Applied Science.
