Bharati Vidyapeeth University, bi-annually organizes International Conference on Nanotechnology, ‘NANOCON’ dedicated to the aspects of Nano Technology and Materials. The 4th edition of the International Conference ‘NANOCON 018’ is being organized in collaboration with North Carolina A & T, State University Greensboro, USA, Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN), Greensboro, USA, Tuskegee University, USA and Drexel University, USA. during 25-26 October 2018 at Hotel Shereton Grand, Raja Bahadur Mill Road Pune. The purpose of this conference is to bring together the experts from Academia, Industries and R & D institutes from India and abroad to interact, deliberate, exchange ideas, share knowledge, and develop a common vision for the future in the field of Nanotechnology.

Conference Theme

The NANOCON0 018 Conference – with theme 'Nanotechnology - Applications Advances and Innovations' is a platform to share research findings, new inventions and innovations, current developments, new applications of nanomaterials, efforts related to product developments and nano-tech based products commercialized.

Although, we have known nanomaterials for ages (for example: DNA/RNA, nanoparticles in Ayurvedic medicines like Bhasma etc); the recent understanding at the 'nanometer' level has created a new scientific knowledge. Nanomaterials have altogether different properties than their atomic / molecular counterparts and corresponding bulk material. Science of 'Nano' has really changed many of our notions. For example, it was believed that every (semiconducting) material has characteristic and fixed optical band gap. Now, it is a common knowledge that 'the optical band gap of materials depends on their particle size' and one can easily tune the optical band gap by manipulating the particle size of the material (s). Materials with exotic properties could easily be made just by tuning the particle size.

In the last two decades, nanoforms (Quantum dots, Nanoparticles, Nanowires, Nanotubes etc) of almost all materials and elements (except radioactive materials) from the Periodic Table have been made and studied. Today, it is next to impossible to find a material which is not yet studied in its 'Nano' form.

Conference Objective

The objective of the NANOCON 018 Conference is to give a common platform to Academicians, R & D Executives, Scientists, Industrialists, from the field of nanotechnology, to interact, exchange knowledge, deliberate upon and disseminate innovative ideas. As mentioned in the theme, the need of the hour is the provision of such a platform. In this context, it is befitting that Bharati Vidyapeeth University, Pune, India, North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, Greensboro, U.S.A, Tuskegee University, Alabama, U.S.A, and Tuskegee University, USA and Drexel University, USA, in collaboration with national premier Institutions, R & D organizations and Industries, are organizing, timely, an International Conference on the said topic. This conference would assist in providing a clear understanding of the implementation plans focusing on the development of future nanotechnology programs.
