Scope Over the last few decades, the design and controlled fabrication of nanomaterials with functional properties has flourished. The beauty of nanoscale materials is rooted in their distinctive properties that arise at the 1–100 nm scale. In this transitional regime, material’s physico-chemical properties differ in fundamental ways from the properties of both bulk matter and the constituent atoms or molecules. This makes them fascinating and highly valuable for applications across many fields from engineering to medicine. Given the myriad of emerging applications in the field, nanotechnology will likely revolutionize the future and have a paramount impact on our society.

The 2020 Functional Nanomaterials Symposium will cover the fundamentals and applications of nanomaterials. We will focus on the significant impacts functional nanomaterials will have on our global society’s needs when incorporated into 21st century technologies. We foresee opportunities for technological advances in nearly every sector of science and industry, particularly in medicine, electronic/bio/chemical sensors, computing and microelectronics, environmental stewardship controls and remediation, transportation, energy production/storage, artificial intelligence among others. Both conventional nanomaterials sessions and focused sessions will be held.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Design of novel isotropic and anisotropic nanostructures, elucidation of their structure-property correlations, and theoretical understanding of the mechanistic principles that govern their novel properties
• Rational control and assemblies of nanoscale components in one-, two- or three- dimensions and the effect of dimensionality on their optical, electronic, chemical, magnetic, and physical properties
• Soft matter physics (e.g. self-assemblies, non-equilibrium colloids dynamic)
• Design and processing of nanostructured materials for energy production and storage
• Progress and characterization of multifunctional nanomaterials, such as bulk MAX and 2D MXenes
• Advances in state-of-the-art nano-sensing platforms with mono- or multi- modal capabilities
• Computational and experimental discovery and design of novel nanomaterials, such as functional nanoparticles and 2D/3D materials.

The scope of the focused sessions will cover incorporation of functional nanomaterials in devices for emerging applications, such as:
• Design, synthesis, characterization and applications of nanomaterials for next-generation batteries (e.g. Li/S, Li/air, Na-ion, Zn-ion batteries)
• Development of nanomaterials toward stretchable electronics and degradable sensors
• Fundamental properties and applications of nanomaterials for hydrogen production
• The additive manufacturing of nanomaterials based devices and related soft matter physics
• Nano-scale robotics, actuation, and manipulation for distinctive applications
• Emerging nano-sensor technologies for artificial intelligence, electronics, environmental stewardship and bio-chemical applications
• Application of computational and experimental methods to functional nanomaterials, surfaces, and interfaces.
