The scope of this workshop is to be a major meeting place of scientists and engineers from all over the world, who are active in studying the innovative combination and design of nanomaterials, their development, fabrication, growth, processing and their characterization. The common place of the workshop is that the form of the concerned materials should be associated with the nanoscale and/or their properties should be manifested and applied at the nanoscale.
