On behalf of the International Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology (International ASET) and the University of Ottawa, the organizing committee would like to welcome you to the International Conference on    Nanotechnology: Fundamentals and Applications.

As globalization leads to increasing interaction among regions and peoples of the world, it is important to encourage multi-disciplinarity in emerging scientific topics such as nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is still in its infancy yet developing at an incredible pace and has given rise to numerous novel applications to the solution of many current problems. The market opportunity is substantial. Science and engineering at the nanoscale will have a dramatic impact on fields such as computing, electronics, telecommunications, energy, environment and medicine. The current global market for nanotechnology is worth billions of dollars and is expected to increase rapidly in the near future. Many business and government leaders describe nanotechnology as “the next Industrial Revolution,” yet the environmental and health impacts remain unknown. However, there is a great need to assess and study the implications and how this new technology can be implemented.

The aim of the International Conference on Nanotechnology: Fundamentals and Applications is to gather scientists and engineers from all over the world to present advances in the field of nanotechnology and to foster an environment conducive to exchanging ideas and information. This conference will also provide a golden opportunity to develop new collaborations and meet world nanotechnology experts on the fundamentals, applications and products.

In the first edition of this conference, twelve keynote speakers will share their expertise in the various aspects of nanotechnology with the aim to expose every participant to a wide spectrum of applications, to foster crosspollination of ideas and develop new research interest. In addition, approximately 200  papers will be presented covering all aspects of nanotechnology.

Ottawa is an outstanding city blending English, French and international cultures. We hope you will have time to enjoy the ambience and hospitality of the Canadian Capital city and the variety of international cuisine.

We thank you for your participation and contribution to the International Conference on Nanotechnology: Fundamentals and Applications. We wish you a very successful and enjoyable congress.
