19th - 22nd August 2013 // London (UK)

INASCON started in 2007 in Denmark, and from the beginning, the objective has been to gather students from all over Europe to offer a unique opportunity to network and promote the careers of young scientists. 

Student participation will once again be the focus of INASCON 2013, and we will put together a strong scientific program with talks from leading nano scientists from around the world to encourage scientific discussion and collaboration from different scientific areas. 

We are working hard to prepare a great program for INASCON 2013. We hope that we will be able to accommodate 100 nanoscience students from all over the world to create yet another successful INASCON.

We will keep this website updated with all the news regarding INASCON 2013 and you are more than welcome to contact us if you have any questions or ideas for INASCON 2013 at

Looking forward to seeing you in London in 2013.
