The two-day event will present 120 scientific articles on different subjects including Nanocatalysts, Nanometrology, Nanocomposites, Nanomechanic, Nanobiotechnology, Nanoelectronics and Nanophotonics.
Organized by the University of Kashan and Iran’s Nanotechnology Initiative Council, the congress will also discuss Nanocarbon materials such as graphene.
Some 2,156 articles were submitted to the congress, from which 935 were accepted, IRIB reported.
Iran’s 4th International Nano Science and Technology Congress will be held on September 8 and 9, 2012.
Nanotechnology is the manipulation of matter on an atomic and molecular scale, and works with materials, devices, and other structures with at least one dimension sized from 1 to 100 nanometers.
The technology is believed to be able to create many new materials and devices with a vast range of applications, such as in medicine, electronics, biomaterials and energy production.
Iran has also recognized the significance of nanotechnology like other pioneering states. The country started its activities with organizing a Study Committee for Nanotechnology in 2001 and establishing Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council (INIC) in 2003.
The Council aims to promote Iran’s international ranking among the countries advanced in nanotechnology and contribute to the country’s economical status.
