CONFERENCE INFO

Welcome to ISTANBUL

It is my real pleasure to welcome you to Istanbul, the magnificent city for all. This year in September, Istanbul will be your destination to have academic as well as social enlightenment and pleasure. The NART-2020 will be held in Istanbul at the Swissotel The Bosporus.

Nanofiber Applications and Related Technologies (NART) conferences have been successfully running between the Nonwoven Institute (NCSU) and the Institute for Nanomaterials, Advanced Technologies and Innovation of Technical University of Liberec. The scholarly support of the Universitaet Bayreuth has also been a great support for NART for many years. It is now time to change the meeting venue and see some emerging researchers to present their nanofiber research results among the gurus of nanofibers and nanofiber applications.

It will be really my great honor to have all the gurus of Nanofibers research from Ramakrishna to Pourdehyimi, from Yarin to Greiner from all over the world. It will be another happiness for me to see the local but international renowned nanofibers scholars such as Menceloglu, Uyar, Ulcay and Bedeloglu. As a NART classic, NART-2020 will also be sectioned as follows;

Micro and Nanofiber Technology and Trends Topics of the session will include a discussion of:  Technology Innovations and Trends Characterization of Nanofibers Modeling and Theoretical Considerations Structure and Morphology of Polymeric Organic and Inorganic Nanofibers Surface Modification and Functionalization of Nanofibers Micro and Nanofibers and Related MaterialsTopics of the session will include a discussion of: Nanofibers and Functional Nanoparticles Nanofibers and Other Nanomaterials Synergies

Nanofibers and Nanomaterials Applications and Products Topics of the session will include a discussion of: Healthcare / Life Sciences Energy Automotive Environment / Water / Air Infrastructure Multi-Nano Applications (nanofibers doped with nanoparticles, nanofibers as nanoparticle carriers, nano-delivery systems for environment and bio-medicine, nano-bio-technologies)

Micro and Nanofibers and Other Nanomaterials in Products Topics of the session will include a discussion of: Business Development Trends Nanofiber Industry Challenges Nanofiber Cost Benefit Analysis, Return on Investment

Last but not least, I have to thank and appreciate the generous support of Inovenso Technology Ltd. And other kind sponsors to hold NART-2020 in Istanbul. I am sure that this technologically rich event will also boost the commercial activities of our sponsors.

Looking forward to seeing and meeting you all in Istanbul on 9-11 September 2020.
