The 1st Adriatic School on Nanoscience – ASON-1 is the result of a common initiative between the University of Jyväskilä, Finland, Joanneum Research, Graz, Austria and the Rudjer Boskovic Institute, Zagreb, Croatia. The idea of the School is to acquire young scientists, primarily PhD students working in nanoscience, and to provide them a systematic approach to nanoscience by excellent lecturers from the field. It should also stay an international forum for the international community of young scientists and engineers working in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology. ASON will cover new advances and developments in nanoscience and nanotechnology, including related characterization techniques and applications. ASON will be organized periodically depending on available funds, and later expand by adding new topics each time when organized.
The first School ASON-1 will be organized 19-23. September 2010 in Dubrovnik, an Adriatic jewel, the traditional meeting point of East and West, the town of unforgettable and
