NANOTECHNOLOGY: International Workshop on ‘Nanotechnology in the Edge of Convergence’,
24-27 November 2011, Malaysia


The Centre for Science and Technology of the Non-Aligned and Other Developing Countries (NAM S&T Centre) presents its compliments to the Embassy of Bosnia and Herzegovina in India and invites nominations for participation in a 4-days International Workshop on ‘Nanotechnology in the Edge of Convergence’ on 24-27 November 2011 being held at Selangor, Malaysia in collaboration with the Commission on Science and Technology for Sustainable Development in the South (COMSATS), Islamabad, Pakistan and the Institute of Microengineering and Nanoelectronics (IMEN), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), Malaysia

The field of Nanotechnology has become widely known in recent years with a large number of its applications becoming known everyday to the public at large in a range of fields of science and technology including materials sciences, semiconductor physics, micro-fabrication, electronics, aviation, molecular biology, textiles, energy, medicine, etc. Nanotechnology has the potential to create many new materials and devices and it possibly holds solutions to world’s problems related to water, agriculture, nutrition, health and energy. For developing countries, it provides a new focus for research for producing complete, high performance products and showing its potentiality in the form of improved water purification systems, energy systems, healthcare, food products and communications, etc. At the same time, nanotechnology has also raised some concerns about the toxicity and environmental impact of nanomaterials and their potential effects on global economics. The Malaysia workshop is being held to deliberate on these issues and to increase awareness of this field’s high significance for developing countries in their developments agenda.

Request for participation in the forthcoming Malaysia Nanotechnology workshop may please be sent to the NAM S&T Centre (E-mail: namstct@gmail.com , namstct@bol.net.in , apknam@gmail.com ) by completing the Nomination Form, a copy of which is appended to the attached Announcement brochure (also available on the Centre’s website www.namstct.org ) . The selection will be strictly on merit and quality of the extended abstract of the presentation material of the participant to be submitted along with the completed Nomination Form. English will be the official language of the international workshop.

Free local hospitality, including accommodation, meals and local transport will be provided from Wednesday, 23 rd November (Noon) to Monday, 28 th November 2011 (Noon), i.e. commencing from one day before the workshop and for an additional day after its conclusion. However, it may be noted that while the NAM S&T Centre reimburses the to and fro international fare to the scientists from its member countries to attend the Centre’s scientific events organised anywhere in the world, since your country has still not joined the NAM S&T Centre as its member, according to our guidelines your scientists and professionals for their participation in this workshop will have to make their own arrangement for the international travel to/from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and also pay to the Centre a Processing Fee of US$350 each to partly offset the expenditure incurred by the Centre in holding this scientific event.

The last date for submission of the applications is Monday, 24 th October 2011.

A copy of the brochure may please be sent to the Federal Ministry of Education and Science.

The NAM S&T Centre avails itself of this opportunity to renew to the Embassy of Bosnia and Herzegovina in New Delhi the assurances of its highest consideration.
