The XII international conference on Nanostructured Materials (NANO 2014) is one of the largest top-rated international congresses bringing together a World community of scientists and engineers interested in recent developments on nanostructured materials in various renowned areas. NANO 2014 is organized by Lomonosov Moscow State University and will take place in Moscow, Russia on July 13 – 18, 2014. This unique scientific event promoted by the International Committee on Nanostructured Materials continues the prestigious series of biannual conferences held since 1992 in Cancun - Mexico (1992), Stuttgart - Germany (1994), Kona - Hawaii, USA (1996), Stockholm - Sweden (1998), Sendai - Japan (2000), Orlando - USA (2002), Wiesbaden - Germany (2004), Bangalore - India (2006), Rio de Janeiro - Brazil (2008), Rome - Italy (2010), Rhodes - Greece (2012). In 2014, the Congress will be held in Russia for the fist time in comfortable summer time, in the green and very domestic campus of the best Russian University.

NANO 2014 attracts the outstanding scientists in chemistry, physics, mechanics, computer simulation, biomedical applications, advanced characterization techniques of nanostructured materials from all over the world. The primary objective of NANO 2014 is to discuss comprehensively and disseminate widely state-of-the-art research, recent achievements, global trends, an exchange of novel ideas, concepts, techniques and exciting perspectives in nanoscience, nanotechnology and related rapidly developing fields. The full range of topics at the frontier of science will be presented in 9 plenary lectures and more that 100 invited talks of world leaders of nanoscience, discussed in 11 technical sessions gathering about 80 hot topics and headed by distinguished scientists, viewed at the congress exhibition hall, debated among posters of talented young scientists competing for congress special awards.

In 2014, the third annual ACS Nano Lectureship Awards will honor the contributions of three individuals who have made major impacts on the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology from around the world. In order to celebrate the global reach of ACS Nano, these awards will honor scientists from across the globe with one recipient each from: The Americas, Europe / Middle East / Africa, and Asia / Pacific. The 2014 ACS Nano Lectureships will be presented at the NANO 2014 conference in Moscow, Russia (see the page of this event on the NANO 2014 site).
