INASCON 2015

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

In 2015, INASCON will return to Basel, Switzerland. The conference will take place from August 11th to August 14th 2015. The conference will offer a variety of scientific activities to give students in the field of nanoscience an opportunity to network and collaborate with international students and scientists, increase scientific awareness and enhance presentational skills.

The conference program (final) includes talks by attending students and leading international scientists, a poster session, a workshop and of course social activities to get to know the other attendants.

This website will continuously be updated with all news and information regarding INASCON 2015. If you have any questions, requests or ideas concerning INASCON 2015, please do not hesitate to contact us at inascon2015@inascon.eu or on our facebook group. In any case, stay tuned for future updates!

We are looking forward to seeing you in Basel, Switzerland for the 9th INASCON!
