Park Systems and University of Bologna are Proud to Announce the 2nd NanoScientific Forum Europe 2019
September 11 – 13, 2019 in Bologna, Italy
After the successful first edition of NanoScientific Forum Europe (NSFE) in October 2018 at the TU Freiberg, Germany Park Systems is happy to invite scientists and researchers working in the field of Atomic Force Microscopy to beautiful Bologna. The NSFE 2019 will be hosted by Dr. Tobias Cramer, Asst. Professor and Researcher at Department of Physics and Astronomy of University of Bologna, and co-organized by CNR-ISMN Bologna, Italy.
Similar to last year, the open AFM User Forum will focus on sharing and exchanging the cutting-edge research for both materials and life science disciplines using Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM). The NanoScinetific concept, which is the idea behind the series of annual NSFE meetings, aims to bring together AFM applications and methodology, creating a link between research needs and technological solutions driven by voice from the field.
A special session will be dedicated to the characterization of novel semiconducting materials with multimodal scanning probe microscopies.
Statement of Tobias Cramer, Asst. Professor of University of Bologna
“Advances in fabrication and nano-scale processing has provided access to multifunctional semiconducting materials with unprecedented performance and property combinations. Examples are semiconductors with soft mechanical properties, semiconductors that combine ionic and electronic conductivity or solution printable semiconductors to name a few. The progress opens enormous opportunities for innovative devices in ICT, biomedical or energy related applications. The special session "Local groups from UNIBO and CNR" will reveal how their research benefits from KPFM, conducting AFM, PinPoint or electrochemical microscopy techniques. The special session will also feature contributions from the European FET-OPEN project LIONHEART that aims to employ organic optoelectronic materials in novel medical therapies.”
The NSFE 2019 will included keynote lectures on different AFM applications, poster session and contributed lectures enabling young scientists to present their research projects, live hands-on-sessions on Park Systems AFM instruments, where you can learn the tips and tricks on various AFM techniques, and an exciting social program in the breathtaking city of Bologna!
Statement of Ludger Weisser, General Manager of Park Systems Europe
“We are honored to support the NanoScientific Forum Europe and we are grateful for this great opportunity to visit different prestigious scientific venues in Europe.
It is always an enriching experience to see how the AFM technology is implemented in research field and what great contributions to science result out of it!”
Together with NanoScinetifc Magazine, Park Systems will sponsor the event for the second time.
The registration for NSFE 2019 will be open in February 2019.
