7th International Workshop on Applications of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (IWANN 2017)
Bilkent University – National Nanotechnology Research Center (UNAM) is hosting the “7th International Workshop on Applications of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (IWANN 2017)” program between 3 – 14 July, 2017. This year’s focus theme is “Energy for future”. This crucial topic will be studied in depth by the experts on the subjects and several workshops will provide a better perspective on the state of the art. The workshop is a collaborative initiative of UNIDO and Bilkent University-UNAM, and is supported by the Turkish Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology and Turkish International Cooperation & Coordination Agency (TIKA).
The immediate objective of the workshop is to expose and advance the knowledge and understanding of participants in the area of nanoscience and nanotechnology applications. The participants will be trained on the fundamentals of top-down and bottom-up nanoscale materials growth and synthesis, cleanroom-based micro/nano-scale device fabrication process design and optimization; project and process specific equipment training.
The workshop will be organized at Bilkent University-UNAM, Ankara – Turkey, the national center of excellence in nanotechnology. UNAM is hosting 62 laboratory areas including a 400 m2 state-of-the-art class 100 and 1000 cleanroom facility with state-of-the-art micro and nanofabrication equipments including thin film deposition systems, plasma etching tools, high-temperature furnaces, lithography equipments, post-processing tools, and electrical/optical characterization facilities. Currently ongoing and potential research fields at UCF include but are not limited to micro/nano-scale electronic and opto-electronic devices, MEMS/NEMS devices, micro/nano-fluidic lab-on-a-chip (LoC) systems, chemical and biological sensors, novel photovoltaic materials and devices, flexible/transparent electronics, magnetic materials and spintronic devices.
The workshop will bring together in total 40 participants: 30 will be from developing countries and transition economies selected by TIKA and UNIDO collaboratively, and 10 will be selected from the host country, Turkey. Applications from research institutions, universities, governmental agencies, private sector R&D laboratories/companies, and NGOs interested in nanoscience and nanotechnology are strongly recommended.
