Hello Everybody! This would be a nice idea to organize a world meeting of The International NanoScience Community. We can do this in a conference way, with nice presentations about "hot topics". Of course the first meeting must be in the country of the head of the network! Hungary! Let us make this dream reality! Cheers, Georgette
I agree with Georgette that Hungary should be the location for a first International meeting of members. The conference format is also a great idea. This is kind of big project and we are going to need help of other members with experience organizing this kind of event.
A world meeting on International Nanoscience is a great idea. However, the field is so broad and covers many sub-specialities - we need to think more on how to organise this 'conference' with selected hot topics in the field of energy, environment and medicine. Also, I take it for granted that it has to be backed up by professional institutions, IEEE, IET, etc.
Before organizing a "real" conference in Hungary, how about organizing an online conference? I believe this would enable more members to be present, a very important goal for a first meeting. Less of a vacation, but maybe more useful?!
I have liked the internet format of the annual Saratov Fall meeting. http://optics.sgu.ru/SFM/2008/ and think it's a good model for other internet science conferences. No fancy streaming video, but many ways to communicate. I can tell you that starting an in-person conference from scratch is a lot of work! It's usually better to partner with an existing meeting in a nearby topic area.
Its good idea to organize world meeting of the International NanoScience Community in 2010. I can host this event at G B Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar (INDIA) if opportunity is given to as "organizing Secretary" of this event. I have experience in organizing such events. Recently, I have organized a National Conference on Recent advances in Mechanical and Production Engineering (RAMP2009) from 12-14 Feb 2009, which has been a grand success. The idea of online conference is also wonderful. You can count me for this event.
Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.
There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!
Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
