US-Argentina Workshop on Nanomaterials

The International Center for Materials Research (ICMR) at UC Santa Barbara and the California Nanosystems Institute at UC Los Angeles announce a two day US-Argentina Workshop on Nanomaterials, which will take place at the Hotel Amancay in Bariloche, Argentina from March 15-17, 2009. Following the workshop, a one day school on the topic of nanobiotechnology will be held from March 17-18.

The scope of the workshop is to provide an exciting forum for US and Argentina faculty, and indsutrial and student researchers to come together to hear about and discuss cutting edge research in the general area of Nanomaterials. We hope that this workshop will lead to a proliferation of tangible goals for joint research at the frontier of materials science and condensed phase dynamics.

Topics for the workshop will include:
Inorganic Materials
Surfaces and Channels
Dynamics of Materials
