Announcement of resuming VC-NST 2020

March 15 - 17  (UTC/GMT+08:00)

As one of the first international conferences adopting the innovative approach of webinar, the Virtual Conference on Nanoscale Science and Technology (VC-NST) has combined on-site colloquiums in the US, Austria, and China, with real-time online participation of researchers all around the globe since 2007. The VC-NST has always brought together the world’s leading scientists working with nanoscale, and provided a unique platform for open communication.

Today, the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak is causing serious restrictions on global travel and also considerable anxiety. Most conventional face-to-face meetings or events, therefore, have to be canceled or postponed. To proactively brace for the impact of COVID-19, and to facilitate the communication and serve on the community of nanoscale research, we are now resuming VC-NST. Introducing state-of-the-art video conferencing technology, we aim to provide a premier forum on the latest advances in the interdisciplinary research at the nanoscale, and allow participants to share insight beyond the boundary of physical distances while involving no risk to everyone’s health, safety, and well-being.

The scope of VC-NST 2020 includes, but is not limited to, the following areas of nanoscale science and technology: plasmonic photonics, quantum dots, nanophotonics and optoelectronics, nanostructured materials and devices.
