Welcome to the 2nd Annual International Conference on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.
It is my great pleasure to invite the community of research scientists, academics and postgraduate students to participate in the 2nd Annual International Conference on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology to be held in Colombo, Sri Lanka during 2-4 September 2015. It has been a real honor and privilege to serve as the Chair of this conference. First International Conference on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology 2014 was successfully completed with more than 60 participants from 19 countries. TIIKM has brought together a rich diversity of authors and speakers from various universities and industry covering more than 16 countries to share ideas and new perspectives on a wide range of topics related to nanoscience and nanotechnology.
The conference focuses on many areas through the Keynotes Speeches, Invited Talks, and Technical Program. This year we have carefully selected few areas such as Textile & Apparel, smart agriculture, energy, water purification, nanobiotechnology, computational nanoscience, and nanotechnology safety & policy. The conference will be organized by the experienced local organizing committee at TIIKM. There will be a significant participation by researchers from local universities and industrial organizations and the potential for collaboration and cross fertilization across borders would be substantial, especially due to the fact that Sri Lanka has already started the nanotechnology programme through a national nanotechnology initiative by setting up Sri Lanka Institute of Nanotechnology (SLINTEC), a world class fifty acre nanotechnology and science park comprising nanotechnology center of excellence equipped with state of the art equipment for nano characterization.
As the Chair of the conference I am requesting you to submit an abstract and participate in the ICNST 2015. Extended versions of selected papers from the conference will be published after peer review. I am confident that these experienced local organizers TIIKM will make the ICNST 2015 an unforgettable event for all the participants. I would also like to invite you to attend this most enjoyable gathering of scientists belonging to the universities and industries from many countries across the globe.
