ICONN 2018 International Conference on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology 29 Jan - 2 Feb 2018 | University of Wollongong, Australia

ICONN2018 Program

The Organising Committee are working on developing a ground breaking Conference program.

There will be three new exciting additions to the program for ICONN 2018. A Centre of Excellence Showcase to be held on Monday 29 January, dedicated burster sessions for ECR and PhD students as well as the opportunity for delegates working in translational nanotechnology to present in industry sessions. Further information will be available soon.

Engineering your Imagination: ANFF Short Course on Nanofabrication Technologies

Engineering your imagination: If you’re looking for a way to realise you research ideas or make a device that you never thought possible, then come to the ANFF Short Course on Nanofabrication Technologies. The ANFF Short Course on Nanofabrication Technologies will provide you with a technical and research introduction to the range of nanofabrication capabilities at your disposal in the ANFF network. You will learn what types of process tools ANFF has, what you can do with these tools, and the range of devices or structures that you can make. Your journey into nanofabrication will be facilitated by a team of expert process engineers and researchers drawn from the ranks of the ANFF network, the very people you will engage with when you use ANFF’s facilities.

Established under the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy, the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF) is comprised of 8 nodes across 21 institutions throughout Australia. Each specialised ANFF Node has a critical mass of state-of-the-art research facilities, technical know-how and academic knowledge to enable world class research. With over 500 process tools and more than 2,500 research users, ANFF is a powerhouse of nanofabrication to support your research.
