The forthcoming International Symposium on Nanostructured and Advanced Materials (ISNNAM 2021) aims to bring together international specialists working in the areas of nanoscience, nanoengineering, advanced materials and nano-innovations, to discuss the challenges, advance techniques and new frontiers in the processing, fabrication, analyses and testing of nanostructured and nanoengineered materials as well as nano-devices.
      The symposium hopes to provide platform for scientific and technical exchange to enhance knowledge, skills, and progress in the multidisciplinary fields of nanoscience and nanoengineering, with special focus on transformation seeking and re-industrialization pathways for the African materials processing technologies in the 4th Industrial Revolution age.
