AM30 & NCNST15 Symposium Beijing: Advanced Nanomaterials for Sustainable Development

On Saturday and Sunday October 13-14, 2018, the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology will host one of this year’s AM30 Symposia to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Advanced Materials and the 15th anniversary of the NCNST, organized in collaboration with the Advanced Materials editorial team.

The theme of this AM30 & NCNST15 Symposium will be “Advanced Nanomaterials for Sustainable Development”, highlighting some of the excellent science being done in this rapidly developing area as well as the role of Advanced Materials in it, and featuring some of the key contributors to the field and the journal.

You are cordially invited to come to Beijing, China and join the lectures and festivities. The meeting will be held in the lecture hall on the first floor of the National Science Library of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, a walk of 5 minutes away from the NCNST. The full program with 11 keynote lectures by CAS Academicians and 17 invited lectures by top researchers from across China and elsewhere can be found below. Participation is free of charge and registration is not required.

We already look forward to welcoming you!
