Meeting on Nanotechnology: Principles and Applications

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia November 22-23, 2018


Venue: UMR Building, University of Malaya, 50603 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Organized by SIATS, University of Malaya, and Nanotechnology and Catalysis Research Centre


Keynote Speaker


Prof. Dr. Jackie Y. Ying (Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology, Singapore)

Nanostructured Materials for Energy and Biomedical Applications

Nanostructured materials can be designed with sophisticated features to fulfill the complex requirements of advanced material applications. This talk describes the synthesis of metallic, metal oxide, semiconducting and organic nanoparticles and nanocomposites of controlled size, morphology and architecture. The nanocrystalline building blocks are used to create excellent materials for catalytic, fuel cell and battery applications. We have also designed and functionalized nanostructured materials for drug delivery, nanomedicine, biosensor, cell culture substrate and tissue engineering applications. The unique properties of the various nanostructured materials synthesized will be presented in this lecture.




NANOTECHNOLOGY represents the 21st century’s most prominent area in the area of science, engineering, medicine, agriculture and management. The challenges brought novel elements based on nanoparticles, nanomaterials, natural materials and green nanotechnology need to be addressed in this conference. It will be a very important event hosted by SIATS. It represents the liaison and integration of theoretical and experimental researches. Its aspects are very important for nanoscience and engineering where high performance, high functionality and low cost are required. There are new-generation elements to accurately transfer other functionalities, such as electronic, electrical, thermal and optical properties, engineering, renewable energies and technology management on the micro- and nano-scale. The community will be benefited enormously over the years through this meeting to understand the principles and applications. It will tackle the issues of the advent of novel materials, structures and applications through a significant worldwide event. Scientific presentations and discussions will be focused on the theory and application of science and engineering in the following themes:

• Nanoelectronic preparation & characterization
• Nanoelectronics
• Nanoprobes, nanofabrication and processing of nanoscale materials and devices
