The MacDiarmid Institute would like to extend a warm welcome to you at the Fifth International Conference on Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology (AMN-5).

The biennial conference offers a broad interdisciplinary overview of advanced materials and nanotechnology, and provides an exciting forum to discuss new and exciting advances in the field.

Technical symposia include:

  • nanoengineered materials and devices.
  • nanolithography.
  • nanoscale optics.
  • nanotube growth and device concepts.
  • nanoparticle synthesis and applications.
  • nanophotonics.
  • electron microscopy.
  • biomolecular assembly.
  • bionano-technologies (including bioMEMs and microfluidics).
  • conducting polymers and molecular materials.
  • functional nanocoatings.
  • hybrid materials.
  • novel semiconductor materials.
  • strongly electron correlated materials.
  • soft matter.
  • physics of clusters and cluster-based devices. 
  • new materials and devices for radiation imaging and detection.
  • plasmonics.
  • nanopore science.
  • spintronics.
  • advanced materials.
2011 will be a most auspicious year marking the 100th anniversary of the discovery of superconductivity, and 25 years since high temperature superconductivity was first observed.

2011 has also been chosen as the International Year of Chemistry, IYC2011. This is intended as a worldwide celebration of the achievements of chemistry and its contributions to the well-being of humankind.

We will be marking these events with special sub-themes during the conference.
Contributors include Nobel Laureate Professor Sir Anthony Leggett (Illinois), Professor Sir Richard Friend, (Cambridge), Professor Jean Fr�chet (Berkeley and LBNL), and Professor Neil W Ashcroft (Cornell).

The conference will be held in Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand from 7th -11th February 2011.
