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 include five annual gatherings: EMN Fall (Orlando), EMN Spring (Las Vegas), EMN Summer (Cancun), EMN East (Beijing), and EMN Open (Chengdu).
To continue its success of last events EMN Summer at Cancun, Mexico (2014) and EMN Qingdao Meeting at Qingdao, China(2015), the 2016 EMN prague Meeting aims to be a unique platform for leading scientists, researchers, scholars and engineers from academia, R&D laboratories and industry around the world to exchange, share and learn the most recent advancement on various aspects related to nanotechnology, and energy-related materials and technologies.
The conference will take place at Prague, Czech Republic during the week of June 21th to 24th, 2016. Prague is situated on the north-west of the country on the Vltava River. The city has a temperate climate, with warm summers and chilly winters! Main attractions include the Prague Castle, the Charles Bridge, Old Town Square with the Prague astronomical clock, the Jewish Quarter, Petřín hill and Vyšehrad. Since 1992, the extensive historic centre of Prague has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. Prague is the fifth most visited European city after London, Paris, Istanbul and Rome. 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 look forward to having the pleasure welcoming you to the 2016 EMN Prague Meeting.
