CeNS Workshop 2011
"Nanosciences: From molecular systems to functional materials"
September 19th - 23rd, 2011
Scope of the workshop
This workshop is intended to bring together young researchers of the Center for NanoScience (CeNS) with experienced scientists from the fields of physics, chemistry and molecular biology. The talks of the workshop are intended to give the graduate students and post-doctoral researchers of CeNS an overview of current research topics on nanometer-scale science.
Under the workshop title "Nanosciences: From molecular systems to functional materials", renowned nano-scientists from all over the world will convene on the beautiful island of San Servolo to exchange ideas and discuss their latest research progress.
The program committee is composed of the following CeNS members:
The workshop will start on Monday, 19th at about 9 am and will end on Friday 23rd around noon and combines invited talks and poster presentations. Lunch menus are available at the University restaurant on the island (not included in the conference fee).
In addition to the talks, all participants are invited to present a poster at one of the two poster sessions taking place on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Abstracts have to be submitted to the CeNS office by August 15th!
The workshop takes place at the Venice International University (VIU) located on the small island "San Servolo" (see map). The island is connected to the historic center of Venice (where the hotels are located) by boat No. 20.

Travelling by air
Several airlines offer flights to Marco Polo International Airport at Venice. From the airport, regular boats (e.g. ALILAGUNA) connect to the island of Venice where speakers and participants are lodged. The conference location San Servolo is reached via boat No. 20 from close to the Piazzale San Marco.
We have booked rooms in several hotels and hostels from Sunday evening (18th) to Friday morning (23rd). All hotels are located in the historic center of Venice.
Accommodation for speakers
