18th Annual Conference on
FOUNDATIONS OF NANOSCIENCE:
SELF-ASSEMBLED ARCHITECTURES AND DEVICES (FNANO21)

Monday, April 12 – Thursday, April 15, 2021

Real-Time Virtual Meeting

Our REAL-TIME VIRTUAL FNANO21:

We will run a real-time virtual streamed FNANO 2021 to allow us to continue to share our research despite the restrictions that are affecting us all.

FNANO Conference OVERVIEW:

This is a yearly conference on the foundations of nanoscience, maintaining the highest scientific standards and providing many opportunities for discussion and informal exchange of information and questions.  Key topics include experimental and theoretical studies of self-assembled architectures and devices, at scales ranging from nano-scale to meso-scale. Self-assembly is a central but not exclusive theme: the conference covers a broad range of research into synthetic and natural nanoscale structures, devices and systems.

FNANO spans many traditional disciplines including chemistry, biochemistry, physics, computer science, mathematics, and engineering. Information on the prior years’ Conferences on Foundations of Nanoscience can be viewed at the archive web site(FNANO04, FNANO05, FNANO06, FNANO07, FNANO08, FNANO09, FNANO10FNANO11, FNANO12, FNANO13, FNANO14, FNANO15, FNANO16, FNANO17, FNANO18, FNANO19,and FNANO20).  The 18th Conference on Foundations of Nanoscience (FNANO21) will have a mixture of invited talks by distinguished scientists as well as contributed talks and posters and oppertunities for discussions to enhance attendee interaction with the goal of creating vibrant intellectual community in the areas of nanoscience and self-assembly. (See Policy against Harassment of FNANO and sponsor ISNSCE.)

ANNUAL PRIZE AWARDS: The Nanoscience Prize recognizes life-long achievements by a researcher working in any area of nanoscience. Also, the Robert Dirks Molecular Programming Prize recognizes exceptional early-career achievement by a researcher working in any area of molecular programming. The winners of these prizes will be awarded during an evening session of the upcoming FNANO21 conference and be invited to give prize lectures at FNANO21.
