Joint Sessions

Announcement and Call for Participation

The largest gathering in the field worldwide, ICCN 2006, in collaboration with the Nanotech 2006, is the premier technical forum for presenting the latest research and development in computational methods, tools and applications at the nano scale.

With the continued miniaturization and blending of technologies, advanced computational techniques in the nano and micro regimes are paramount in the advancement of all high technology regardless of its traditional domain. The ICCN provides a forum for the interdisciplinary blending of computational efforts in biology, chemistry, physics and materials, founded on inherently similar modeling approaches but applied towards traditionally distinct disciplines.
