The 3rd International Meeting on Developments in Materials, Processes and Applications of Emerging Technologies (MPA)

The 3rd International Meeting on Developments in Materials, Processes and Applications of Emerging Technologies (MPA), which will be held in Manchester (UK) during 21-23 July 2009. More details on the event can be found from the website

Topics of MPA-2009:
1. Tribology and Lubrication Science
2. Surface Technology (Coatings; Thick & Thin Films; Surface Fabrication, Modification & Characterisation)
3. Materials for Energy Applications
4. Biomaterials & Nanomedicine
5. Carbon Nanotubes

Plenary lecture - the plenary lecture will be given by Nobel Laureate Professor Sir H. W. Kroto (Florida State University, USA).
Invited talks - there will be a host of invited people from academia and industry.
Posters - there will be poster display sessions in between the technical talks. We are looking to give out prizes for the best poster presentations.
Oral contributions - people from academia and those from industry or those doing industrial work will be given the opportunity to give short 10-15 minute presentations on their most recent work.
Exhibition - companies will have the opportunity to exhibit during this event which will attract people from all over the world.
Interactive discussion forum – the conference will end with an interactive open discussion forum consisting of academics and industrialists all under one roof discussing issues relating to materials, processes and applications of nanotechnology.
Publications – papers presented during MPA-2009 will be considered for publication in special issues of the following journals:
• Journal of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
• Journal of Nano Research (JNanoR)
• Surface Engineering
• Lubrication Science

You can submit your abstracts by sending them to

The abstract submission deadline is 30 March 2009.

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
