Message from the conference chairs

The Virtual Conference on Nanoscale Science and Technology (VCNST) is in fact so much more than just another conference. We have an opportunity together to be explorers as we enter a new era of sharing and dialoguing about science.

A typical face-to-face conference will take place from October 26 - 29, 2011 at Chengdu, China. Beyond the well-prepared topical sessions, there will be a range of other exciting opportunities for visiting participants to get out and explore Chengdu, the vibrant, dynamic and accessible city.

Together with its face-to-face counterpart will be a joint virtual conference run in real-time, providing an advanced collaborative environment for participants from every corner of the world to share their knowledge while carrying on their regular scholarly duties and without the expense of physically traveling to Chengdu. By using the computers in their offices or homes, through the Internet VCNST participants will be able to present their research on thousands of screens along with oral or poster presentations as they become part of the face-to-face conference in Chengdu and the whole world.

This is a new type of platform for the rapid dissemination of information on the important scientific achievements by nanoscience and nanotechnology researchers worldwide. With latest screen sharing techniques and voice over Internet protocol, every VCNST presenter is offered the opportunity to deliver their research to additional thousands of audience members and receive their responses, both in real time. Now, audiences are not limited to conference attendees alone as with a conventional conference.

VCNST conference programs will utilize the extraordinary possibilities of the current course of technological revolution and explore the unlimited possibilities of the future.

Because this is an experiment in a new form of conference, we seek further comments and suggestions.

Previous Conferences:



This conference is proudly hosted by the State Key Laboratory of Electronic Thin Films and Integrated Devices (SKLETFID) at the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC). SKLETFID has been active in the area of microelectronics and solid-state electronics, electronic materials and devices, material physics and chemistry and material science. Situated at Chengdu, UESTC is a multidisciplinary university with electronic information science and technology as its nucleus and engineering as its major field. It is reputed to be “the cradle of China’s national electronic industry”.

Chengdu is a fascinating city which located in the south-west of China and been praised and reputed as “the Country of Heaven” because of its beautiful scenery, serene atmosphere, fertile land, affluent life, as well as the food and culture. For more information about visiting the city of Chengdu and things to do while you're visiting,  including surrounding areas such as in the Jiuzhaigou Scenic Area and Huang Long Valley, Please visit Chengdu Travel Guide.

The Conference Venue, Wangjiang Hotel Chengdu, is the only urban forest five-star hotel in Chengdu, combining South Asian charming landscape and Western Sichuan folk culture. Located in the east part of Chengdu, close to the eastern financial center and the East Train Station and national AAAA scenic spot—Sansheng Flower Town, the hotel has a convenient position, 5 km to the Downtown Tianfu Square, 9 km to the Train Station and 15 km to the Airport. Covering an area of 155 mu, gathering thousands of flowers and serving as the paradise for trees and birds, and featured by pavilions, streams and villas, it is an ideal place combining natural landscape with cultural attraction. Well decorated, elegantly impressed, it is a wonderful place for travel, meetings and business activities.
