The NanoMesh workshop will be held in the small car free village of Braunwald
in Switzerland from September 17-20, 2006
This Workshop brings together experts in
the domains of nanostructured and functionalized
surfaces, molecular monolayers, catalysis, bioadhesion and nanomagnetism in order to discuss
recent progress in the understanding of self-assembly processes and in the control of
This workshop is organized within the framework of the STREP (Specific Targeted Research Project)
", sponsored by the FP6
of the European Commission.
In this project, a nanomesh of hexagonal boron nitride is explored. It serves as a model system
for a non-trivial self-assembly process and is a promising nanostructured support material for
widespread applications due to its thermal stability and chemical inertness.
of this workshop, open for 60 to 80 participants from inside and outside the "NanoMesh"
project, is to connect new findings and concepts gained with the boron nitride system to the
wealth of knowledge available from a much wider class of nanostructured materials and to evaluate
The workshop format
consists of invited and contributed papers.
Poster sessions will allow to induce informal discussions.
We are looking forward to meet you in a healthy and stimulating scientific atmosphere!
