Safety warning

We currently use Zoom for our online conferences.

After the news appeared in the last days, our technical team and different experts have verified that the use of Zoom does not imply a direct security problem for the user, provided the following measures are followed:

  • Keep zoom updated to the latest version.
  • Do not share user or conference ID or passwords.
  • Do not share the url (web address) that reaches you to access.
  • Do not download Zoom from unofficial websites
  • .Verify that the emails you receive to access our conferences are from, or
Organize an online seminar

nanoGe is eager to promote the organization of online seminars. Do you have a topic? It's very easy to lauch a meetup! Just describe the topic, decide a few speakers, and fill the form.

Most important: We wish to encourage participation of both junior and senior researchers, please propose interesting research directions

nanoGe Online Meetup Conference

You are invited to participate in the online seminar Shape-Controlled Nanocrystals: Synthesis, Characterization Methods and Applications . It will take place May 7th at 13:00h UTC / 15:00 CEST


This e-symposium covers the latest advances in synthesis of shape-controlled nanocrystals, as well as the recent developments in methods and techniques that allow to study both the growth and the final particle morphology, on a global as well as atomic scale. It will also discuss the unique assemblies that such particles allow for, both as close-packed thin films, or in composites. We also welcome submissions that address the particular photophysics that arises when going beyond a standard spherical quantum dot, and the optoelectronic and photonic applications that take advantage of the particular nanoparticle shape.

Two decades ago, we saw the birth of shape-controlled colloidal nanocrystals. Today, state-of-the-art synthesis can produce a wide variety of single-composition and heterostructured nanocrystals, from 0D spheres, cubes, pyramids, over 1D nanorods and single- and dual-core heterorods, tetrapods, octapods, to 2D nanoplatelets, and many other combinations of such morphologies. These particles exhibit unique optoelectronic properties, and can assemble into anisotropic superstructures. As a consequence, a new generation of applications that show improved performance by exploiting the nanocrystal shape is currently under development.

We welcome poster submissions on all these topics, for which, by integrating them in a single symposium, we hope to stimulate discussions between chemists, materials scientists, physicists and engineers, and foster new (joint) efforts toward shape control of colloidal nanocrystals and nanocrystal assemblies, and their applications

Topics to be covered by the conference:
  • Synthesis of Shape-controlled 0D, 1D, and 2D Colloidal Nanocrystals
  • Advanced Structural, and Optoelectronic Characterization Methods
  • Photophysics of Shape-controlled Nanocrystals
  • Processing of Shape-controlled Nanocrystals into Functional Films and Composites
  • Optoelectronic and Photonic Applications
Meetup Presentation

This online seminar brings the scientific conference gathering to the desktops or smartphones of scientists worldwide. Researchers can present their work and keep up with cutting-edge research in the field while reducing their carbon footprint, improve the work-life balance and keep the sense of community.

It will consist of two parts, in which interaction will be the main force:

  • The Oral Session will consist on a few short broadcasted talks led by Invited Speakers, followed by a time for questions from the public driven by a moderator.
  • ePoster Session, where attendees and authors can share their ideas and get feedback from their colleagues worldwide through a chatroom.

All participants can join and present here their work. Due to the short format of the meeting (with few oral contributions), we encourage senior researchers to present ePoster, and of course we expect enthusiastic participation of junior researchers.

What do I need to join the online conference?

In order to register to the conference, you need to log in nanoGe (or create an account if you are not registered yet) and buy a ticket as usually. Upload a picture of your face if it is not yet in the system. You will receive the registration confirmation via e-mail.

Present your work: ePoster Submission

For fully obtaining the main goals of a scientific conference, the participation of many researchers presenting their ideas in a rich interactive context is necessary. ePoster is a versatile presentation of scientific information.

You can present results, technical points, suggestions or doubts about methods, or formulate a question, in order to exchange information and generate scientific progress through communication.

Oral Sessions
Participants will receive an invitation to join the event hours before the start. The event will start at the time, but participants should join it minutes before and stay in the waiting room

The oral session will consist of presentations with slides played while the speaker is talking on a specific topic for about 10 min. It will be followed by questions from the audience for 10 min through the chat.

ePoster Session

Afther the Oral Sessions, there will be a 30 minutes recess before the ePoster Session. During this break, participants will receive an email with the link to the ePoster Session.

The ePoster Session will be carried through a chat platform, where participants can find a Discussion Channel for each ePoster and a General_Poster_Hall for general information.

ePoster Session

For fully obtaining the main goals of a scientific conference, the participation of many researchers presenting their ideas in a rich interactive context is necessary. ePoster is a versatile presentation of scientific information.  With ePoster format you can achieve a variety of goals according to your preference:

  • Present your work and get feedback. Give diffusion to your results
  • generate discussion on any scientific question of your interest.
  • keep up with cutting-edge research in your field
  • get clarification on research that’s important to your studies.

You can present results, technical points, suggestions or doubts about methods, or formulate a question, in order to exchange information and generate scientific progress through communication.

In the ePoster you describe the contents you propose for communication and discussion. The ePoster will be available in nanoGe conference ePoster Program page along with the abstract and your picture. You can also insert it in the assigned room in the conference chat.

In contrast to traditional static conference posters, that present a closed scientific case, ePoster for online conference is a dynamic framework to instigate the exchange of scientific ideas and information. You can be open and imaginative, provided that the normal codes of scientific exchange are respected.

Use a file type that you can share easily in different media. JPG and PNG files are supported.

The ePoster is different than the traditional wall hanging poster. When designing and making your ePoster you should follow some basic directions

  1. Present the information so that it can be viewed quickly
  2. Make a simple design that costs you a limited amount of wor

It is important that you highlight clearly the main message or information of your contribution, as is achieved in the following example.

Your ePoster will obtain visibility in the ePoster Board of the Conference. You have a rectangle space containing the list of authors, title, your picture, TOC, ePoster, and also (optional) a 3 min video of explanation, and a pdf file of Supporting Information (optional).

The ePoster Session will take place in a chat platform where you will find:

  • A Directory with a channel for each of the ePosters. ePosters will be identified with the code assigned and the surname of the author.
  • A General_Poster_Hall with some basic information about all the eposters, provided by the authors and a direct URL to join their channel.

Discussions on each poster should be carried in the assigned room. Interact with participants about the topics of your interest and visit as many ePoster discussion rooms as you are interested in through the Directory.
