“Modelling for Nanotechnology” (M4nano) is a WEB-based initiative leaded by four Spanish Institutions aiming to maintain a systematic flow of information among research groups and therefore avoid that research efforts in Nanomodelling remain fragmented.
Emerging research areas such as Molecular Electronics, Biotechnology, Nanophotonics, Nanofluidics or Quantum Computing could lead in the mid-term future to possible elements of nano-based devices. Modelling behaviour of these possible nanodevices is therefore becoming more and more important and should allow to: (i) Visualise what happens inside a device (ii) Optimise the devices under study (iii) Improve understanding of device properties (physical, chemical, etc.).
Networking is vital to any scientist and even more so for persons working in the inter-disciplinary field of Nanotechnology and in particular Nanomodelling. To fulfil this necessity, M4nano will organise high-level dissemination activities such as this 1st symposium.
In this way, M4Nano completes the aim of both raising awareness of scientists in Nanotechnology modelling issues and aiding them in developing beneficial collaborations and employment opportunities.
The 1st M4nano Symposium will be organised by the following Institutions: PHANTOMS Foundation, Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (UAM), Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas (CSIC), Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM) and Parque Cientifico de Madrid (PCM). It will take place at the PCM located at the UAM campus, in Madrid (Spain).
