The first European conference on Smart Nanomaterials took place at the École Nationale Supérieure de Chimie in Paris, France, 10 – 13 December 2018:
Internationally known experts, including industry leaders, met at the first European conference on Smart Nanomaterials to discuss the most critical technological advances, innovations and new practical applications in smart technologies. SNAIA2018 will provide a unique platform to meet, share knowledge and establish links between experts from academia and industry in the emerging fields of Wearable and Printed (Opto)Electronics, CMOS Photonics, Quantum Computing, Artificial Intelligence, OptoGenetics, Smart Coatings and Thin Films.
The organising committee was led by Dr Anna Baldycheva, effectively supported by XM² PGRs Ineta Grikalaite, Benjamin Hogan, Joaquin Faneca, Iago Rodrigues-Díez and our alumni Dr Erick Burgos (Unite Mixte de Physique CNRS/Thales).
Well done to the team for the successful conference – and very many congratulations to XM² researcher Charlie-Ray Mann who brought the best student talk prize for his presentation on his plasmon polaritons research home to Exeter. The talk was voted to be the best for both technical merit and presentational aspects by the chairs of the conference sessions. His prize was presented at the Gala Dinner by Professor Shanhui Fan of Stanford University, USA.
