The Next EMN Meeting on DNA and RNA 2016 will take palace at Las Vegas, NV USA  from October 10th to 14th, 2016. Please visit: http://emnmeeting.org/DNA/2016/ .

The EMN Meetings grew out of a small workshop series that began in 2008 at a traditional villa in Orlando, Florida. Over the next three years, six additional successful workshops were organized on various focus topics in materials science, and grouped under the title of “Villa Conference” in honor of the original 2008 Orlando meeting. The Villa Conference series has grown rapidly beyond the traditional villa setting, continuing to attract highly-quality contributions from members of the international scientific and engineering communities.  In 2012 the first Conference with a broader theme of Energy, Materials and Nanotechnology was held. The EMN meetings now become annual gatherings around the globe, taking place at USA (Orlando and Las Vegas), Mexico (Cancun), China (Beijing, Chengdu, and Hongkong), Thailand (Phuket), Turkey (Istanbul), and Spain.

The EMN Meeting on DNA and RNA 2015 aims to be a unique platform for leading scientists, researchers, scholars and engineers from academia, R&D laboratories and industry around the world and will continue to promote discussions and information exchange across the frontiers of research in the field of DNA and RNA Nanotechnology.

Istanbul, situated on a peninsula at the entrance to the Black Sea, Turkey’s largest city lies on either side of the Bosporus and thus is located in both Europe and Asia. It is the only one famous international metropolis who had 3 names in the world, known in previous incarnations as Byzantium and Constantinople. Istanbul boasts large number of historical sites, which attracts numerous visitors from all over the world, including Topkapi Palace Museum (the old palace), Dolmabahce Palace (the new palace), Sultan Ahmet Mosque (Blue Mosque), and Hagia Sophia Museum (Hagia Sophia Church) , Prince Islands and etc.

The meeting will be a few days of intense collaboration with great social occasions. It will be not only be a time to enjoy the company of fellow researchers in the field, but also a time to have fun with friends and family! We encourage you to give yourself some time for recreational pursuits!

We look forward to having the pleasure welcoming you to the meeting.
