25–28 August 2017 1st International Conference on Micro/Nanomachines

Wuhan, China

Micro/nanomachines are able to automatically move and perform complex tasks. They are promising to make revolutionary changes in many fields, such as biomedicine, micro/nanoengineering, environmental monitoring and remediation, food safety, and security. In order to promote the development of micro/nanomachines, three symposia were successfully organized in September 2012 (Dresden), July 2014 (Hannover) and July 2016 (Hannover). It is worth celebrating that in 2016, the Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded jointly to Jean-Pierre Sauvage, Sir J. Fraser Stoddart and Bernard L. Feringa for their outstanding achievements in the design and synthesis of molecular machines. This event is a milestone and has encouraged a growing number of researchers to be devoted to this attractive field, bringing out many amazing results in designing, understanding, and applying micro/nanomachines. Simultaneously, there are still great challenges to address as well as marvelous prospects to realize. In order to promote these advancements, the ICMNM 2017 to be held in Wuhan on August 25-28, 2017 will provide a perfect venue for global researchers interested in micro/nanomachines to share results, build friendships, establish collaborations and spark ideas. This conference will focus on the theme “Propulsion at Micro/nanoscale”, which includes three sessions: micro/nanomotors (active colloids), molecular and DNA machines, and microactuators. More than 200 researchers from around the world are expected to attend this conference. We are confident that you will enjoy this upcoming conference. Welcome you to join us and to visit Wuhan, where you will enjoy Chinese Chu culture and Han Show at the same time!
