Seeing at the Nanoscale 2012 : Book the date and Preliminary Program


Exploring the Future of Nanotechnology

BOOK THE DATE: July 09th-11th

Bruker is pleased to announce Seeing at the Nanoscale 2012, the tenth annual scientific conference focusing on nanostructural imaging, characterization, and modification using scanning probe microscopy (SPM) and related techniques. The event will be held from July 09th-11th, 2011, at the Wills Memorial Building, University of Bristol in the United Kingdom. The conference is jointly organized by Bruker, the University of Bristol, the Bristol Centre for Nanoscience and Quantum Information, and promises to build on the biological and physical sciences interdisciplinary strengths of each organization.

Hosted by the conference chairman Professor Mervyn Miles (University of Bristol) and co-chairman Professor Heinrich Hörber (University of Bristol), this conference will provide an optimum forum for "scientists to speak to scientists" on a wide variety of nanotechnology topics with four technical sessions (Preliminary Program) covering: 

Keynote: Toshio Ando (Kanazawa University, Japan)

BioAFM: Cells and Molecules

Energy, Graphene, Electronic Materials

Welcome - about us

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
