> International Symposium on Advanced Complex Inorganic Nanomaterials (ACIN 2011)

Future events in the area

September 11-14, 2011 - Namur, Belgium

ACIN 2011 is an international symposium organised jointly by the University of Namur (FUNDP) and the Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL). It will be held in Namur (Belgium) on Sept. 11-14 2011. The symposium is supported by INANOMAT network funded by Belgium Science Policy Office (BELSPO).

The aim of this meeting is to offer an update of recent innovations in both fundamental and applied aspects highlighting new advances and progress in the field of nano-materials (inorganics, ceramics, hybrids, molecular and bio-inspired).

We encourage researchers to submit an abstract of their most recent research related to one of the four following topics:

T1: Nano-sized and nano-structured materials: Fundamental Aspects, Surface Science Mechanisms, Theoretical Models and Characterization.

T2: Advanced preparation methods: New precursors, New methods including Sol-Gel processing, New materials, Processing and Shaping.

T3: Templated and Self-assembled (porous) materials including MOFs and hybrid materials.

T4: New Applications and New Properties: Chemical (catalysis, sensors, gas storage) and Physical (magnetism, optics, conductivity, spin crossover, ...)
properties and applications in fuel cells, solar cells, batteries, ...

The emphasis will be put on interdisciplinarity (Complexity and relation with other disciplines) and on future directions (New trends).  The
organisers would also like to make this meeting a discussion forum between scientists working in the field and also those who would like to become
acquainted with new developments and perspectives of applications of nano-materials.
