Nanosafety 2013

The Nanosafety 2013 conference will be held from November 20-22, 2013, in Saarbrücken, Germany.

Nanotechnologies are developing with increasing pace. They impact a broad range of industrial sectors, from energy, optics, electronics to food and biomedicine. Using these technologies, materials, objects, and structures in the size range between 1-100 nanometres are generated, manipulated or analysed. For a sustainable development of these promising technologies, aspects of nanosafety gain more and more importance.

Nanosafety includes

  • a detailed knowledge on the materials as well as acquisition of their properties
  • elucidation of the effects of nanomaterials on human beings, including detailed analyses on their mode of action and structure activity relationships
  • assessment of the impact of nanomaterials on living organisms and the environment
  • the detection, identification, and quantification of nanomaterials in complex matrices, for example cells and tissues
  • as well as standardization, legislative, regulatory and social aspects.

The state of the art, future needs, and developments in these fields will be presented and discussed.
