Online Conference

Welcome to the International nanoGe Conference on Nanocrystals (iNCNC) our exciting new interactive platform coming to your screen from 28th of June to 2nd of July 2021.

The iNCNC is an online conference with the aim to bring together scientists of different research disciplines active in the fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology, with a focus on colloidal nanocrystals.

During the last 20 years, researchers have produced NCs with compositions spanning the periodic table. Advances in synthetic methods have allowed precise control of shape and size for single-component NCs, as well as heterostructured ones with a topologically defined distribution of their composition. This refined control translates into unique properties that can be exploited in many different applications, including electronics, photonics, plasmonics, catalysis, energy conversion and storage, and biology and healthcare. The iNCNC will provide a platform for the leading scientist in these vanguard areas to share and discuss their latest results.

Topics to be covered by the conference:
  • Nanocrystal synthesis, surface chemistry and assembly
  • Nanocrystal individual and collective optical, electronic and magnetic properties
  • Applications in electronics, photonics, plasmonics, catalysis, energy conversion and storage, and biology and healthcare
Important Dates
Early registration deadline: 24th May 2021
Abstracts submission deadline (oral): 28th May 2021
Abstracts submission deadline (poster): 21st June 2021
Scientific program: 7th June 2021
How can I participate at the conference?


To register you should login with your nanoGe account and purchase your ticket at the conference home.

Submit your contribution

Once you have registered you can submit your contribution in the ‘Abstract Submission’ tab. There are two types of Contributions:
