The 2008 Asian Conference on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (AsiaNANO2008) will be held in Biopolis, Singapore, on November 3-7, 2008. The main objective of the conference is to provide a stage for Asian scientists working in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology to network and communicate their latest research findings. Asian countries have been greatly contributing to the rapid progress in nanotechnology research.

This is the fourth conference in the AsiaNANO series. The first was held in Tokyo in 2002, the second in Beijing in 2004, and third in Pusan, South Korea in 2006. This conference series has become an important academic symposium for nanoscience research in Asia, creating effective networking among the Asian scientists, institutions and companies, and promoting the inter-countries and interdisciplinary collaborations in nanotechnology.

Singapore has been the scene of many exciting developments in scientific research, including in the fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology. The venue of the conference is Biopolis, a purpose-built biomedical research hub where researchers from the public and private sectors are co-located. Situated in the south-western part of Singapore, the Biopolis is within walking distance of the Buona Vista MRT Station and is near both the National University of Singapore and the National University Hospital.

Selected papers will also be published in a special issue of the International Journal of Nanoscience.

The scientific program includes plenary, invited and contributed talks and poster sessions, in the following symposia:

1. Carbon nanotubes and related nanomaterials
2. Graphene: Materials and devices
3. Nanomagnetics, spintronics and multiferroics
4. Nanobioscience and nanobiotechnology
5. Functional Nanoassembly: nanoparticles, quantum dots, nanoarchitectures and self-assembled architectures
6. Multi-paradigm simulation at the nano-scale: methodology and applications
7. Nanofabrication: nanoimprinting, nanolithography and related techniques
8. Materials Issues in Hydrogen Storage: From Bulk to Nano and Asian Consortium for Computational Materials Science (ACCMS) Working Group Meeting on Hydrogen Storage Materials

The official language for written and printed materials, as well as for presentation and discussion, is English.
