VII European School on Molecular Nanoscience

II Workshop on 2D Materials

October 26th – October 31st, 2014 Gandia Spain

FIRST CIRCULAR: Announcement and pre-registration

The molecular region of Nanoscience is still a region that has been scarcely explored in Nanoscience, maybe because the larger structural and electronic complexity of molecules, compared with that found in simpler atom-based nano-objects and nanostructures, make them more difficult to study at the nanoscale with the currently available instrumental techniques. Albeit, it is in this molecular region where molecular chemists, biologists, physicists and engineers working in Nanoscience may find the best opportunities to interact and to converge. Areas like supramolecular chemistry, molecular electronics and molecular magnetism are expected to converge in this region.

The seventh European School on Molecular Nanoscience (ESMolNa2014) intends to provide a suitable framework to show and extensively discuss the state-of-the-art in these multidisciplinary areas. Lectures are aimed at the post-graduate level as they will be presented to an audience primarily formed by post-graduate, PhD students and postdoctoral fellows. In fact, the School will be the last part of an intensive Advanced Course of three weeks organized in the frame of a European Master in Molecular Nanoscience. This meeting also intends to be a forum where the active European scientific groups working in these areas will have the opportunity to meet and informally discuss with the younger generations.

This training school is organized by the Instituto de Ciencia Molecular (ICMol) of the Universitat de València and the COST Action PoCheMoN: Polyoxometalates Chemistry for Molecular Nanosciencie (Action Number: CM1203)

The second Workshop on 2D Materials will be organized by the Instituto de Ciencia Molecular (ICMol) of the Universitat de València and the Instituto de Estudios Avanzados (IMDEA)-Nanociencia. This workshop will take place on October 30th and 31st, having the first day a joint program with ESMolNa2014.

The talks will be held at the Hotel Bayren in Gandia beach, where the attendants will be hosted.

The School and the Workshop are structured in three different blocks:

General_lectures (50 min+ 10 min discussion): This part will deal with the essential aspects of Molecular Nanoscience on the topics i) Supramolecular Chemistry in Nanoscience; ii) Concepts, materials and applications of Molecular Electronics; iii) Single-Molecule Electronics; iv) Molecular Nanomagnetism; v) Molecule-based Spintronics.

The following invited lecturers have confirmed their attendance:

AGRAIT, Nicolás (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain)
BONDAVALLI, Paolo (CNRS/Thales, France)
CASTELLANOS, Andrés (TU Delft, Netherlands)
ERRINGTON, John (Newcastle University, United Kingdom)
GARCÍA, Ricardo (Instituto de Microelectrónica de Madrid, IMM-CNM-CSIC, Spain)
MALRIEU, Jean Paul (Université Toulouse III-Paul Sabatier, France)
MAURO, Matteo (Université de Strasbourg, France)
RUBIO, Ángel (Universidad del País Vasco, Spain)
VAN SLAGEREN, Joris (Universität Stuttgart, Germany)

Specialized_lectures (25 min + 5 min discussion): In this part, short tutorial lectures showing some relevant scientific advances in the above topics will be presented by the most representative European research groups active in Molecular Nanosciences.

Oral_communications (10-min communications): With the aim of encouraging discussion and communication among all the participants, the students will have the opportunity to present short communications about their research results, including those that, although incomplete, can promote debate.
The ESMolNa2014 will be open on Sunday 26th of October in the afternoon (at 4 pm) and it will finish on Thursday 30th of October in the evening.

The second Workshop on 2D Materials will take place on October 30th and October 31st, having the first day a joint program with ESMolNa2014.
The registration fee to both congresses for students, including accommodation from 26th to 31st October in double-room and full board is 450€. For students of the Master on Molecular Nanoscience and Nanotechnology the registration fee is 300€.

For students members of the Specialized Group on Nanoscience and Molecular Materials of the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry is 375€.

The registration fee per person for doctors or professors, is 110€/night including accommodation in single-room and full board, or 90€/night in double room with double occupancy.
Attendance will be limited to about 100 participants, of which 60 will be European students chosen on the basis of their interest and contributions to the subject area. Those interested in participating in the School should fill in the pre-registration form available at the following WEB page:

Pre-registration is mandatory for students and convenient for those participants that wish to present a short specialized lecture.
