Research Report, Paul Kruger, Chemistry, 8.2.13Welcome

On behalf of the MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology I would like to extend a warm invitation for you to join us in Queenstown, New Zealand for AMN8, in February 2017.

AMN8 is the eighth in our biennial series of meetings that focus on the latest research in advanced materials and nanotechnology.

The event will continue the very best traditions of previous events, including a range of high-impact plenary presentations, cutting-edge invited and contributed talks, interactive poster presentations and convivial social events.  The intimate scale of AMN conferences and the broad interests of fellow delegates offer many opportunities for networking and interdisciplinary discussions.
Queenstown sits on the shore of the South Island’s Lake Wakatipu and is set against the dramatic Southern Alps. As one of New Zealand’s premiere tourist destinations,  Queenstown truly offers something for everyone, from breath-taking scenery to world-renowned vineyards and adventure sports.

More information about the programme and abstract submission deadlines can be found here.

I hope to see you in Queenstown in 2017!

Paul Kruger
AMN8 Conference Chair
