NANO KOREA 2012 - Aug 16-18, COEX, Seoul, Korea

The 10th International Nanotech Symposium & Nano-convergence Expo in Korea.

Nanotechnology : The Frontiers of Innovation in Science & Industry

NANO KOREA 2012 will be held in Coex, KOREA, during August 16-18, 2012. This is the 10th anniversary since NANO KOREA was held in 2003. NANO KOREA is an annual international symposium and exhibition supported by the Korean government, in spirit of bringing together outstanding scholars, researchers and business figures from Korea and abroad to share the latest information and trends in the field of nanotechnology. As the most influential nanotechnology festival in Korea, NANO KOREA will be a perfect opportunity to comprehensively prospect nanotechnologies from basic research to industrial applications. It
will be held in Coex ( which is Korea’s top convention and exhibition center in Seoul.

As the 10 th anniversary the retrospect of past, status of present and trend of future in nanotechnology will be discussed. And the commercialization status of nanotechnology during the last 10 years will be highlighted. Full papers submitted by the contributors will be published after peer reviews in Journal of nanoscience and Nanotechnology (JNN) as Nano Korea 2012 special issue.
