Programme [ reference ]


Research into nanostructures is the main direction of modern physics opening up exciting prospects in all areas of human activity. However serious anxiety is caused by insufficient involvement of young scientists in the given area of science. Therefore scientific community nowadays needs urgently research-related events for young scientists covering fundamental and applied aspects of nanotechnology, photonics, quantum and optical electronics.

In this connection a unique event is the International school for young scientists “Nanostructure materials, applied optics and photonics” which is held within the framework of 16-th International Symposium “Nanostructures: Physics and Technology” and which enables up to 200 young scientists (under 35) to get involved with world’s most recent developments in nanoscience with the following topics being the center of attention:

  • Revealing strategic priorities in experimental and theoretical researches in the field of physics of nanostructures and nanotechnologies;
  • Summarizing the most advanced technologies of creating nanomaterials, application-focused nanostructures, nanosensors, etc. in the fields of nanoelectronics, nanophotonics and biotechnologies;
  • Scientific integration and cooperation of the Russian and international scientists for carrying out joint researches in the field of nanostructures physics and technology;
  • Expansion of the international scientific cooperation in Asian - Pacific region countries.

Location and Date

The forthcoming 16’th International Symposium NANOSTRUCTURES: Physics and Technology will be held in Vladivostok on July, 14 - 19 2008. International school for young scientists “Nanostructure materials, applied optics and photonics” as a part of the Symposium will be held simultaneously at the Symposium’s venue - Primorsky Region Administration Premises in Vladivostok downtown.

All contributions should be presented in English that is the official language of the Symposium. No simultaneous translation services will be provided.

Main Topics:

  1. Nanotechnology: formation and self-organization.
  2. Electronic structures modeling and simulation.
  3. Electrical and optical properties of nanostructures.
  4. Optical materials, microcavity and photonic crystals.
  5. Sensors based on nanosized systems. Optoelectronic and fiber-optical sensors.
  6. Silicon and germanium-silicon structures for photonics and optoelectronics applications.
  7. Nanocrystalline materials.
  8. Biomaterials and biosensors.

School Format

The School program will comprise only poster presentations of the scientist younger than 35 year old. All contributions will be refereed for technical merit and content by the International Program Committee on the basis of the abstracts submitted by the authors. Main criteria for paper acceptance are originality, significance of the results presented, quality and completeness of the abstracts.

Listeners of school take part in plenary and oral sessions of the 16-th International Symposium “Nanostructures: Physics and Technology” on equal terms with other participants of the Symposium. Poster presentations of the School listeners will be arranged to take place as separate poster sessions simultaneously with poster sessions of the Symposium.

Each poster presenter will be provided with a 1x1 m board.
