The physics of nanoscale materials and the devices based on them has now become an important area for research and development in both academic and industry laboratories. The iNOW 2014 workshop will engage participants in considerations of state-of-the-art nanoscale semiconductor processing and synthesis, the new physics of tailoring material’s optical and electrical properties, new advances in characterization techniques, and new devices with novel functionalities. Similar to previous iNOWs, the workshop features tutorial-style talks, poster sessions for students, rump sessions and ample time in beautiful surroundings of St. Petersburg and its region. The iNOW 2014 workshop will be organized in two locations: Mansion “Burevestnik” in the wonderful countryside of Luga, 150 km to the south of St. Petersburg, and in St. Petersburg Academic University. There will be several social events such as barbeque parties at the lake shore in Luga, St. Petersburg city tour, boat trip, and excursions to famous sites in St. Petersburg including its world-class museums. The workshop promises ample opportunities for interaction, inspiring presentations, exciting discussions, and invigorating debates. We hope your experiences here will stimulate future collaborations and spark future breakthroughs.
