Nanoscience and nanotechnology are at the forefront of modern research. Nanotechnology is the application of nanoscience leading to the use of new nanomaterials and nanosize components in useful products. Nanotechnology will eventually provide us with the ability to design custom-made materials and products with new enhanced properties, new nanoelectronics components, new types of “smart” medicines and sensors, and even interfaces between electronics and biological systems.
These newborn scientific disciplines are situated at the interface between physics, chemistry, materials science, microelectronics, biochemistry, and biotechnology. Control of these disciplines therefore requires an academic and multidisciplinary scientific education and researches.
The International Conference on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICNSNT) 2014 – taking place in Colombo, Sri Lanka on August 12 – 13, 2014 at the Galadari Hotel – has been set up with two objective for this conference:
- First objective is creating a platform to worldwide sceintists, chemists, physicists, engineers, biologists, biochemists to discuss about the new development and innovations in the field of nanoscience and Nanotechnology.
- The second objective of the Nanoscience Conference – 2014, is providing opportunity to network with each other and share their knowledge and experience to build better world that would far more better than the where we are living today.
During the conference, we will set up series of activities including key note sessions, posters, cultural show, networking dinner, presentations. We believe you all will enjoy this 2 day conference and you will end up with deep impression about the conference.

- Nano in Textile, Agriculture and Food Science
Best paper Award
This award will be granted to the best paper in ICNSNT 2014. Organizing committee will select the best paper based on feedback of scientific review committee. Evaluation based on relevancy of paper on given themes, content and quality of the paper and impotency of findings. Both oral and virtual paper submission will be eligible to “Best paper award”. Decision of ICNSNT 2014 organizing committee is the final decision.
Best Presentation Awards
This award will be granted to presenters based on their presentations at the conference. Quality of the presentation, content of the presentation and level of interaction with the audience in the Q&A session will be used by Session Chair to select the best paper in his/her session. Decision of Session Chair will be the final decision.
Best student award
This award will be granted to student presentations. Quality of the presentation, time management and quality of the findings relevant to ongoing practices may have higher level of chance to get selected. Decision of the ICNSNT 2014 Research panel will be the final decision.
