Call for papers: Nano and Biomaterials: the Building Blocks

Call for papers: Nano and Biomaterials: the Building Blocks

A special issue of International Journal of Nano and Biomaterials

Nanomaterials have fascinated scientists from their very inception as they have made their dream of tailoring materials according to their requirements much closer to reality. Their unique properties and promising applications in mesoscopic research, nanodevices, and optoelectronics devices are well understood. These materials are currently one of the most active frontiers in science and technology and the field of biomaterials is becoming one of the most intellectually exciting areas of materials science and engineering. Even though activity in this field is not new, there is currently fresh energy brought about by the remarkable advances in molecular and cell biology of the past two decades.

Therefore, the goal of this special issue is to present the current state-of-the-art in nano and biomaterials research and to provide a forum for developing the possible applications of nano and biomaterials for next generation nanobiotechnology.

The subject coverage of this special issue includes, but is not limited to, topics that address:
  • Fundamental research and developments on nano and biomaterials
  • Nanobiotechnology
  • Applications of nano and biomaterials
  • Emerging fields of nano and biomaterials
Research that spans several fields is particularly welcome. In addition, papers presented to the ICON008 session on Nano and Biomaterials will also be considered for this special issue. The International Conference on Nanotechnology (ICON008) is being held under the auspices of His Majesty King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz and organized by Center of Nanotechnology at King Abdul Aziz University, Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on 17-19 June 2008.
