The Conference will be held in Lviv, Ukraine, on 31st August till 6th September 2008.
The Conference's aim is to provide an opportunity for the meeting of scientists
and technologists working on novel functional and nanostructured materials.
The conference programme will cover experimental investigations,
theory and modelling of:
- Photonic and optoelectronic materials,
- Magnetic materials,
- Catalytic materials,
- Nanoparticle materials,
- Auxetic materials and models,
- Thin and thick films,
- Organic, hybrid and composite materials,
- Micro/Nano Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS/NEMS): technology and applications,
- Physics and technology of nanostructured semiconductors and superconductors,
- Physics and technology of carbon nanotubes and carbon-based materials,
- Industrial applications of nanotechnology,
The Conference is envisaged to include a Round Table Meeting
intended to promote cooperation and preparation of cooperative projects,
as well as applications for their funding at the national and international levels.
The meetings will involve industrial partners in directing research towards major
practical problems in applications of advanced innovative technologies and
facilitating industrial applications of research results.
Lviv. where the Conference will be held, is a regional city of Ukraine,
the most important political and cultural centre of the westerns of the country.
At the same time, Lviv has the mission to play a considerable part in intercommunications
with countries of Central and Eastern Europe both by its geographical position and historical

where the main European watershed, dividing the rivers of Baltic and Black
Seas basins, passes. Lviv stands on the crossing of the roads, that connect
Western and Eastern Europe. Plants, producing buses, mopeds, TV-sets and other
products are functioning here. Lviv is a large road junction - a knot of railway,
air and motor-car communication.
The Ivan Franko National University of Lviv was founded in 1661.
In January, 1940 it was given the name of Ivan Franko. On October 11, 1999
the University was given the status of the National University. At present
the University is made up of 17 faculties. They offer two major forms tuition
- full-time and extramural. An important pedagogical scientific work is carried
out at 100 department. There are over one hundred laboratories and working units
as well as the Computer Centre functioning here. The Zoological, Geological,
Mineralogical Museums together with those Numismatics, Sphragistics and Archeology,
an Observatory and Botanical Garden stimulate the interests of students. The University
library, with a very rich book depository, is one of the largest in Ukraine.
