advances in a wide range of applications.
ICAN-2019 is aimed at bringing together the scientific and technology community, to share their experience on advancements in the materials synthesis and characterization techniques, its applications in different modern industries, specifically for renewable Energy and clean Environment. Eminent scientists in the respective fields will share their experience and knowledge with the young participants, which in turn are expected to promote research activities on the advanced materials. Owing to the advancements in software and hardware technologies, sophisticated tools have been developed to synthesize, characterize and model smart materials at the length scale with controlled behavior. This ability is transformational for the discovery process and as a result confers a significant competitive advantage. The most spectacular increase in the capability has been demonstrated in high performance computing. This rate of improvement has shown no signs of abating, which has enabled the development of computer simulations and models of unprecedented fidelity.
The overwhelming response of participants in the series of workshops and conferences organized by our group from 2009 to 2016, has motivated us to organize this conference on Nanomaterials and Technologies for Energy and Environment. The conference will be of great importance in the sense that it will be attended by young chemists, physicists, biologists and engineers making it truly interdisciplinary in nature so as to not only know about the new methods but also to share their research findings on preparation, analysis of materials and devices at nano scale and their possible application in the medicine, automotive, chemical, electronics, electrical engineering and other industries. It is also aimed to sensitize the young participants in the current areas of materials science so as to make them instrumental in pursuing quality research. Since 2008, the Advanced Materials and Nano-electronics Research Group of CNT Lab, in ABV-IIITM, actively contributing towards basic as well as application specific material and device modeling research. This conference is a celebration of completing the ten years of Advanced Materials Research group at CNT Lab of ABV-IIITM, Gwalior.
