On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is a great honour to welcome you to the 2nd International Conference on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICNAN ’19), which will be held at the Centre for Nanotechnology Research, Vellore Institute of Technology, Vellore, India during November 29 – December 1, 2019.

ICNAN’19 is aimed to provide a platform for researchers, scientists and Industrialists across the globe to exchange, discuss the state-of-the-art research and development and identify the future demands and needs in the field of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. Nanotechnology, the manipulation of matter at the atomic and molecular scale to create materials with extraordinarily novel and unusual properties, is a rapidly escalating domain of research with huge potential to revolutionize the world and our lives. It holds the promise to answer some of the world’s most immediate concerns in energy, electronics, agriculture, environment, information technology and medicine. Particularly, the last few years have witnessed ardent expansion of nanoscience and nanotechnology offering massive opportunities. It is highly interdisciplinary, encompassing all the domains of science and technology.

The conference will comprise of a special lecture by Nobel Laureate Dr.Ada E. Yonath (Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, 2009), Plenary talks, Keynote and Invited talks from renowned speakers across the globe. Various technical forums have been organized to discuss and share ideas on various niche areas of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology like advanced nanomaterials, applications in energy, electronics, environmental, nanomedicine and nanobiotechnology, etc.

The participants will be given a platform to present their research work through oral and poster presentations. A special award for the Young researchers has been organized to encourage the researchers working in this area. Overall this conference will give the participants a lot of opportunities to explore, collaborate and discuss on the current and future trends of Nanotechnology.

I appreciate all the members of the organizing committee, steering committee, and program committee who have been working with creative efforts to make this conference a grand success.
