Welcome to ISSON20

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

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 ISSON20 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 of 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 NN20, ISFOE20 or I3D20 Conference, your poster can also be presented there!

At the end of ISSON20 Schools, the best poster will be awarded!
