There is considerable excitement surrounding graphene and other 2D materials - materials that can provide exceptional thermal, electrical, optical, barrier and mechanical properties. This special symposium will bring industry and academic leaders together as we go beyond the fundamental research to explore innovations in synthesis and production, and highlight the applications potential of these remarkable materials. Submit an abstract and plan to share your research and innovations at this dynamic event.

Journal Submissions


NanoImpact is a multidisciplinary journal that focuses on nanosafety research and areas related to the impacts of manufactured nanomaterials on human and environmental systems and the behavior of nanomaterials in these systems. As such it will publish in the following areas:

Human Nanotoxicology - nano-bio interactions and effects on human health;
Econanotoxicology - nano-bio interactions and effects on organism and ecosystem health;
Exposure - nanomaterial release, fate and behavior in the environment and human/engineered systems;
Risk Assessment and Life Cycle Assessment
Other areas, such as the development of methodological and modelling approaches and the development of materials and methods to enhance nanosafety, are appropriate if there is a clear and demonstrable link to the above themes. Submissions to the 2017 Environmental Health and Safety of Nanomaterials Symposium will be automatically considered by the journal NanoImpact, the selected contents will be reviewed and invited for submission after the conference.
