We are proud to announce the 2nd Nanocrystals Zing conference, which will be held in Dublin, Ireland between 2nd – 5th of August 2016.

We seek to bring together researchers interested in the synthesis, characterization and manipulation of nanocrystals, as well as nanocrystal-based devices. The conference topics include, but are not limited to the following aspects:

  • Nanocrystal synthesis, shape-/structure-/composition-control, growth mechanisms and functionalization
  • Tailoring and processing of polymeric nanostructures, organic-inorganic nanocomposites and nano/biohydrids
  • Nanocrystal self-assembly, superlattices and superstructure determination
  • Nanocrystals for sensing, magnetic, thermoelectric, photovoltaic, battery and supercapacitor applications
  • Nanocrystals for nanomedicine (such as drug delivery), diagnostic, imaging/labeling and other biological/medical applications
  • Nanocrystals for chemical, (photo-) catalytic and electrocatalytic applications
  • Nanocrystals for electronic, photonic and optoelectronic applications
  • Nanocrystals for environmental and other energy/sustainability applications
  • Nanocrystals for other related topics

Contributions accepted for this conference will be presented either as oral or poster presentations. Both oral and poster presentations are vital to the success of the conference and are expected to be of similarly high technical quality. Participants should indicate their preference for oral or poster presentation in the submission of their abstracts. However, the scientific board will make the final decision on the presentation format (oral or poster).


journalParticle & Particle Systems Characterization Journal

Each of the conference participants is invited to submit an electronic manuscript for potential publication in Journal “Particle & Particle Systems Characterization” (WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim).

Guidelines for the preparation of manuscripts are provided via the following link – Manuscript Guidelines.

The submission will be available from 1st June 2016, and all manuscripts must be received by 30th November 2016. The deadline will be strictly observed, and post-deadline manuscripts will not be accepted. The contributed papers will be evaluated through a normal peer-view procedure of the journal. Please note that one of the authors must have registered at the conference in order the manuscript to be forwarded for review.
