Areas of Emphasis: Nanoscale Science and Engineering and Advanced Materials
ChairNosang V. Myung, University of California, Riverside
Theme Program Brochures
Nanoscale science and engineering is a new scientific field which design, fabrication, and application of nanoengineered materials, and the fundamental understanding of the relationships between chemical and physical properties or phenomena and material dimensions. The basic building blocks of nanotechnology are nanoscale materials which properties to tailored by controlling the composition and dimension of materials. Because of its broad range of potential applications, it require contribution from multi-disciplinary teams. The aim of this theme is to bring together the Korean and US community working in the field of nanotechnology and material science and engineering, and to foster an environment conducive to present advances in this field. This theme will also provide a golden opportunity to develop new collaborations and gather US-Korean nanotechnology and materials science and engineering experts on the fundamentals, applications and products.
