Welcome to ISSON18

...where the world class experts share their knowledge with the scientists & engineers of tomorrow...

Check out the ISSON18 Time Schedule!

The ISSON Summer Schools will give the opportunity to young researchers and early-career scientists and engineers to participate in a series of lectures on the emerging fields of Nanosciences & Nanotechnologies.

This year ISSON18 is divided in three complementary schools that cover the significant areas in the N&N field:

school1 school2 school3  

The lectures will review the current trends and knowledge in the fields of NN in general (mainly in School 1) and in parallel focus in three main Application areas, the Organic Electronics (School 2), Nanomedicine (School 3). Furthermore state-of-the-art techniques, as well as a demonstration-tour in the laboratory facilities for developing and characterizing nanoscale materials will also be included. Top class Experts from Universities, Research Institutions and Industry worldwide will share their knowledge and experience in the format of lecture presentations. Generally, the ISSON program will be comprised by plenary and parallel sessions in order for the ISSON students to fix-and-attend lectures according to their preference.

Present your work in ISSON's Special Poster Session

All ISSON participants can present their current research work (background and research activity) in a Special ISSON Poster Session to the rest of the group, the ISSON Committee and Lecturers at the Welcome Ceremony of ISSON Schools. In case you will also attend the NN18 and/or ISFOE18 Conference, your poster can also be presented there!

At the end of ISSON18 Schools the best poster will be awarded!

What will the ISSON program include and how many ECTS credits can you get?

A full day program of ISSON lectures for the 30 June-7 July 2018 with parallel sessions of three of the Schools to run each day, usually School 2, School 3 while School 1 which covers generally N&N will be mostly in shared sessions. The fix-and-attend choice for the attendees is available in order to enhance the interdisciplinary role of ISSON. There will be a limit of about 30 participants/students to enroll for the parallel sessions. ISSON attendees will also participate in the conferences ISFOE18 and/or NN18, in case they also registered for the above events.
ATTENTION: After the lectures there will be written exams and those who will succeed will get 3 ECTS credits.
