About IWNA 2023

Sixteen years ago, the First International Workshop on Nanotechnology and Application 2007 (IWNA 2007) was held on November 2007 in Vung Tau, Vietnam. The following Workshops (IWNA 2009, IWNA 2011, IWNA 2013, IWNA 2015, IWNA 2017, and IWNA 2019) were also organized successfully (the IWNA 2021 was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic). The Workshops have attracted many scientists coming from various Universities, Institutes, Laboratories and Companies all over the world. For each IWNA, there were about 250-300 participants (including 100 foreigners from 20 countries) with 200-250 papers covering almost every aspect in nanotechnology, varying from fundamental research, nanomaterials synthesis, processing to nanofabrication of nanodevices and their applications in life science. In IWNA 2019, there were 19 manuscripts from the participants accepted for the Special Issue of International Journal of Nanotechnology (IJNT).

Continuing the success of the seven Workshops, this year the IWNA 2023 will be held on November 08-11, 2023 in Phan Thiet, Binh Thuan. The IWNA 2023 is jointly organized by Vietnam National University Ho Chi Minh City (VNUHCM) / Institute for Nanotechnology (INT) and MINATEC (France). It receives the support of the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Department of Science and Technology - Ho Chi Minh City and other organizations.

The IWNA 2023 will hopefully open an opportunity for international & national scientists to exchange knowledge on various aspects of nanotechnology. Moreover, the broad network for international collaboration in research and education on nanotechnology may be established as the productive results of the Workshop. In addition, as a satellite activity of the Workshop, the Forum on Business opportunities of Micro-Nanotechnology industry in Vietnam will be organized to provide a chance for scientists, researchers and business community to exchange business opportunities in Micro-Nanotechnology in Vietnam.

In conjunction with IWNA 2023, the Annual School on Micro-Nanotechnology (MINATEC 2023) will be held in Ho Chi Minh City on November 06-08, 2023. This School is co-organized by MINATEC (France) and INT (Vietnam), and offers various lectures on micro-nanotechnology and discussion about new recent issues in nanotechnology.
