International Conference on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology 2011 (NANO-SCITECH 2011)
Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) are delighted to announce that the NANO-SciTech Centre, Institute of Science, UiTM, and Nagoya Institute of Technology (NIT), Japan, are organising an International Conference on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology” (NANO-SCITECH 2011).
Nanotechnology is a research and fabrication of device at nanometer scale i.e. one in a billion meter in length. By the year 2015, nanotechnology is expected to have wide and extensive usage. Pharmaceutical, information and communication technology (ICT), electronics and agriculture are some of the industries that will directly benefit from nanotechnology.
Demand for technology is at all time high, challenging and complicated. Due to this, scientist and technologist are working hard to produce alternative technology: new technology or also known as nanotechnology.
As a developing country, Malaysia is actively pursuing research and development (R&D) and high technology industry. It is pertinent that Malaysia fully involved in nanotechnology field and directly fulfilled its Ninth Malaysian Plan (RMK-9).
The information and development in Nanotechnology can be derived from various sources, for e.g. through the internet access, journals, magazines, books, seminars, conferences and discussion forum.
Conferences and workshops are made in the effort to enhanced research and understanding on nanotechnology by various agencies especially higher learning institutes which are actively involved in this field.
In order to promote this gathering of scientists and academicians, Institute of Science, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) will organize its Third International Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Conference 2011 (NANO-SciTech 2011).
The NANO-SciTech 2006 has been organized for the first time in 2006 and about 180 participants from national and international level have been participated. Almost 230 participants from national and international level have been participated in the NANO-SciTech 2008.
NANO-SciTech 2011 is a meeting point to encourage scientists and academicians around the world to meet and discuss their advances and inventions in this new century. This is also due to the overwhelming response received from local and international participants from the previous international cnoference.
