C'Nano 2020: The Nanoscience Meeting

For the fourth consecutive year, the French national Competency Cluster in Nanoscience of CNRS, C'Nano, organizes its annual international meeting in nanoscience.

C’Nano 2020 The Nanoscience meeting aims at gathering the scientific communities in nanoscience and nanotechnology, and will take place in Occitanie region (France) at the Pierre Baudis Congress Center in Toulouse from December 8th to 10th, 2020.

The program will include plenary lectures and parallel sessions on topics at the interface of various research areas: nanochemistry & nanoparticles, nanobiomedicine, nanophotonics & nano-optics, nanoscale heat transfer, nanocomposites,  nanosafety, 1D & 2D nanomaterials, nanomagnetism & spintronics... A thematic session specifically dedicated to PhD students and post-docs will be co-organized with the CNRS research network GdR Or nano

Two special sessions wil be scheduled. The first one will address the innovation in nanoscience: it is dedicated to researchers, PhD students, post-doctorates and engineers willing to transfer their knowledge and technologies towards industry. It will involve stakeholders of the French innovation ecosystem in Toulouse and Occitanie region. The second one will consist of a round-table on "Art & Sciences".

In addition, a poster session will be opened for contributions and an exhibition area will be organized for sponsors and partners. A ceremony will be also organized to reward best PhD Thesis 2020 in nanoscience as well as best oral and poster presentations.

Last, two satellite events will be organized in the frame of this congress. The first one concerns a meeting organized by the Interdisciplinary Group for Nanotoxicologial Studies (GIENS) the day before the congress (Monday, December 7th). The second one is the GdR NACRE Plenary (Nanocrystals embedded dielectrics for Electronics and Optics) will take place on Tuesday, December 8th in the morning.

This meeting is dedicated to all scientists in nanoscience and nanotechnology, including academic and industrial researchers, engineers, PhD students, Post-docs, etc.

Up to 300 academic and industrial attendees are expected!
