The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will host a Symposium on "Advanced Nano/Biosystem: Design, Fabrication and Characterization" to be held in Urbana, Illinois, USA, September 25 to 27, 2013. The primary objective of the symposium is to stimulate interdisciplinary discussion on recent advances in the rapidly evolving fields of nano/biomaterial design, fabrication and characterization among physics, chemistry, biology, mechanics, and material science.

The symposium will include two days of lectures (Sept. 25-27) and one day (Sept.27) of hands-on simulation tutorials and laboratory demonstrations, featuring work at the Beckman Institute and the College of Engineering's Frederick Seitz Materials Research Laboratory. Professor John A Rogers and Professor Klaus Schulten will deliver plenary lectures. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

-Advanced mechanical testing and materials analysis techniques

-Multiscale modeling and simulation

-Evaluation and characterization of materials and structures at extreme conditions (e.g. shock/blast wave impact, high and low temperature)

-Mechanics of functional/smart/energy/biomaterials

-Self-healing materials and systems

-Design and fabrication of multifunctional nano/biomaterials system

-Bio-inspired design and fabrication of actuator/sensor/gate/switch

-Self-assembly of bio/nanomolecules and particles 

 The deadline for abstract submission is July 8, 2013
