Welcome to nanoRuMex 2013


Saint Petersburg State University continues the Russian-Mexican workshops on Nanoparticles, Nanomaterials and Nanoprocessing (RuMex). The third meeting will be opened on Monday, October 14, 2013 and will be closed on Thursday, October 17, 2013.

The goal of the meeting is to provide a platform to establish the comprehensive and all-round cooperation between Russian and Mexican scientists in the field of nanomaterial science and technology.

Scientists from Russia and Mexico are invited to participate in the Workshop with oral reports and poster presentations. A special poster session will be organized for young scientists (including students and PhD students). The official language of the Workshop is English.

The Book of Abstracts will be published and distributed to each participant of the 3rd RuMex workshop on arrival.
