2nd International Conference on Nanomanufacturing (nanoMan2010) held in Tianjin, China on 23-25 September, 2010
The 2nd International Conference on Nanomanufacturing (nanoMan2010) was held in Tianjin, China on 23-25 September, 2010. Around 230 participants from various countries, such as China, Germany, Korea, Singapore, Japan, UK, and USA gathered in? Binhai New Area, which is one of the most dynamic developing regions in China, for in-depth discussions and exchanges of the latest findings of research and development in the field of nanomanufacturing.
It was introduced that, with the development of economy and ever increasing demand from industry, nanomanufacturing has been progressing rapidly. With this new developing trend, Tianjin University initiated a proposal to start a new international conference series on nanomanufacturing (nanoMan), and had obtained ?strong supports from the top experts all over the world in the field. As a result, the 1st International Conference on Nanomanufacturing (nanoMan2008) was held in Singapore in July, 2008 with a great success.
During the conference, Prof. Stephen Y. Chou (a member of the American Academy of Engineering), Professor R. Hocken (the former president of the International Academy for Production Engineering), Professor H. Kunzmann (former chairman of Precision Engineering Committee of the International Academy for Production Engineering), Professor J. Luo (director of the State Key Laboratory of Tribology of Tsinghua University) were ?invited to give Keynote Speeches on ” Nanoimprint – An Enabling Engine to Nanotechnology and Nanomanufacturing”, ” Some recent Advances in Precision Positioning”, ” Nanometrology –the Indispensable Base for Nanomanufacturing” and “Interaction between a Nanoparticle and Worked Surface in the Manufacturing of Ultra-smooth Surfaces” respectively. More than 30 distinguished scholars in the nanomanufacturing area were invited to give invited presentations. It was followed by 24 Technical sessions. Attendees presented their latest development on the topics of nanometrology, nanocharacterization, ultra-precision machining, laser fabrication, micro and nano manufacturing, and other technologies associated with nanomanufacturing and followed by exciting and heated discussion and exchange of views etc.
With the great supports from distinguished professors, scholars and researchers, nanoMan2010 is greatly successful. The committee of the conference would like to express their gratitude to the attendees, the sponsors and those who did the hard organization work, and wish their continuous support for the future conference series.
