Adriatic School on Nanoscience

July 21, 2010

The 1st Adriatic School on Nanoscience, ASON-1, will take place in Dubrovnik, Croatia from September 19th through September 23rd.  It is the result of a joint initiative between the University of Jyväskylä, Finland, Joanneum Research, Graz, Austria and the Rudjer Boskovic Institute, Zagreb, Croatia. The aim of the first School is to provide young scientists, primarily PhD students working in the nanosciences, with a systematic overview of modern nanoscience through selected contributions from the field’s most relevant experts. Beyond that, it is intended to establish ASON as an international forum for the growing community of young scientists and engineers working in the fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology. In this manner ASON is conceived to flexibly adjust to encompass the most recent advances and developments in these rapidly evolving disciplines, including related characterization techniques and applications.
