1st Al-NanoFunc Workshop: “Advanced Microstructural Characterization of NanoMaterials”

It was a great honor to organize the 1st Al-NanoFunc Workshop in “Advanced Microstructural Characterization of Nanomaterials” on July 5-6, 2012.

This two days’ workshop addressed the latest advances in microstructural characterization of nanomaterials. Reflecting the main objectives and character of Al-NanoFunc project, it aimed to be an open discussion forum to bring together senior and young scientists in the field.

We would like to express our gratitude to all participants.

We are grateful to a number of organizations that funded or supported this event making it possible.
