On behalf of the organising committee, we would like to invite you to join us for the eighth International Conference on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICONN 2024).

ICONN is the largest biennial Australian conference series in the field of nanoscience. Since the inaugural conference was held in Brisbane in 2006, ICONN has seen success in cities all around Australia, including Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra and Wollongong.

In 2024 ICONN will feature a diverse array of multidisciplinary talks designed to connect world leading scientists, students, engineers, industry participants and entrepreneurs working in the field of nanoscale science and technology to discuss new and exciting advances in the field.

The theme of ICONN 2024 is Innovate, Collaborate, Commercialise. The conference will bring together our whole international nanoscience and engineering community encompassing all academic career levels through to industry, venture capital and regulatory specialists and all points in between. Across symposia topics of electronics, photonics, quantum, bioengineering, computation and energy, it will all aspects from fundamental to the applied fuelled by academia-industry collaborations.

Industry partners and delegates will be able to network across the various sessions and events in the exhibition space with opportunities to show case new products, technologies and services via lunchtime and breakout workshops as well as participation in panels that will form part of each themed symposium.

We invite you to be a part of ICONN 2024, where you will meet world-leading scientists and learn of the latest trends in this exciting and dynamic field. We look forward to connecting with you at ICONN 2024.

Sincerely yours,

Professor Sally McArthur

The Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF) was founded in 2007 to overcome hurdles to R&D success by providing open access to micro and nanofabrication equipment, essential to Australia’s scientific and economic future. It was one of nine original research infrastructure facilities established under the Commonwealth’s National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS).

ANFF has grown to annually support over 180,000 hours of usage and almost 3,000 clients and more than 20% of this work is done by industry.

ANFF provides services for both academic researchers and industry. Researchers and Industry can either gain direct access to facilities under expert guidance, contract for specialised products to be made or undertake contract research projects through our extensive network of research talent.

The ANFF network comprises 100+ full-time staff and incorporates world-leading expertise in 500+ individual manufacturing and research capabilities located at twenty leading Australian institutions, organised into 8 specialist Nodes. Filled with over $500 million of investment in tooling, infrastructure and people, ANFF has a vital role in the translation of research from idea to proof-of-concept and commercialisation.

ANFF owns and provides access to capabilities that can assist in both the development of new products and improvements to current production methods. Each Node provides expertise in a specific area, including advanced materials, quantum technologies, nanoelectronics & photonics and nano-bio applications. The ANFF commitment to providing a world-class, open-access user facility is underpinned by the sharing of best practice in service provision across the network.

ANFF expanded its focus in 2021 to provide out-of-lab support and ensure businesses can access essential assistance through a client-centred approach. The new approach has been employed to help reinvigorate key industry sectors that can be supported by ANFF’s cutting-edge micro and nanofabrication capabilities and to enable Australia’s growth.

Australian Nanotechnology Network

The Australian Nanotechnology Network (ANN) is a collaborative platform that brings together various key groups involved in nanotechnology research. The primary objective of the network is to foster communication, innovation, sharing, and utilization of collective strengths and facilities to have a significant global impact. One of its key functions is to identify emerging research areas and promote the utilisation of existing infrastructure in Australia while encouraging collaboration and sharing of these facilities. The ANN also aims to identify infrastructure requirements to enhance research capabilities and actively engage with other networks to foster mutual benefits. Moreover, the network seeks to develop strong industry and international connections, interact with the broader community, and support the growth and development of postgraduate students and early career researchers by providing skill-building opportunities. Ultimately, the ANN aspires to become a valuable national resource for industry, research and educational institutions, government entities, and policymakers alike.
