CELEBRATING 35 YEARS OF NANOSCIENCE AND NANOTECHNOLOGY (pdf document here)

SCiMAN10   Group

 

SCiMAN10 is the tenth annual symposium organized by the Centro de Investigación en Ciencia e Ingeniería de Materiales, CICIMA (Materials Science and Engineering Research Center). It represents an effort to provide to the local and regional scientific and engineering community a place to share results obtained from the research activity in materials science and engineering as well as nanotechnology. Most of the presenters are scientists, engineers and students belonging to local and international universities or laboratories.

The topics usually covered by past symposia were, among others, hot topics like soft condensed matter, biomaterials, composites, nanostructured semiconductors, polymers and graphene. Apart from the local public universities (Universidad de Costa Rica, Universidad Nacional de Costa Rica, Instituto Tecnológico de Costa Rica), lecturers from other international institutions have already presented: Laboratório Nacional de Luz Síncrotron (LNLS-Campinhas, Brazil), Institut de Ciència de Materials (Barcelona, Spain), Universiteit Leiden (The Netherlands), Centro Atómico Bariloche e Instituto Balseiro (Bariloche, Argentina), Universidad de Alicante (Alicante, Spain), Leibniz-Institut für Festkörper- und Werkstoffforschung (Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research-Dresden, Germany), Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM-Madrid, Spain), Universidad Nacional de la Plata (UNLP-La Plata, Argentina), Sapienza-Università di Roma (Rome, Italy), Freie Universität (Berlin, Germany), Chalmers Institute of Technology (Gothenburg, Sweden), Centro Nacional de Biotecnología (CNB/CSIC-Madrid, Spain), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, USA), Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (Seoul, South Korea) and Intel Corporation.

 

The scope of the symposia is to offer lecture-oriented block sessions with interstitial breaks to provide refreshments. Each session has a chairperson charged to introduce the lectures, keep track of lectures timing (usually 20 to 45 minutes), ask for questions from the audience and in general maintain an appropriate flow of a session. A poster session is also organized.

This symposium has been endorsed in the past by the Materials Research Society (MRS) MRS and the American Vacuum Society (AVS) AVS. This year, It is endorsed by the Electrochemical Society, MRS and AVS.
