Special Symposium

This symposium will highlight novel materials that will be the foundation for new generations of electronics products and devices. This year it includes a special focus session on materials for flexible electronics.

The symposium is also the home of our "novel nanostructured materials" session. If you have developed a unique nanostructured material, with potential for applications in any field, that falls outside the scope of other symposia in the Nanotech2012 Advanced Materials track we invite you to submit your abstract in this topic area.

Topics & Application Areas

  • Metallic Nano Structures
  • Nano Wires
  • Magnetic Nanomaterials
  • Materials for Optical & Display Technologies
  • Nano Devices & Systems
  • Novel Nanostructured Materials
  • Flexible Electronics
  • Other
