ICN+T 2014 will be held in Vail, Colorado located two hours from Denver, Colorado from
July 20-25, 2014
.

The 2014 International Conference on Nanoscience + Technology (ICN+T) will provide an international forum for discussion of the latest developments in nanoscale science and technology and recent advances in scanning probe microscopy and related techniques. The ICN+T represents the convergence of the former International Conference on Scanning Tunneling Microscopy/Spectroscopy and Related Techniques (STM) and Nano, which were first combined in Basel, Switzerland in 2006. (List of the former meeting sites.) This conference will cover a range of topics in nanoscale science and technology, addressing the interdisciplinary, international nature of this exciting and rapidly growing field. Topics to be covered include scanning probe microscopy/spectroscopy and related instrumentation, nanosystems, nanomechanics, nanomanipulation, nanomagnetism, nanooptics, nanowires, nanofluidics, nanobiotechnology, molecular electronics, quantum devices, and advances in materials and processing for nanotechnology and nanofabrication.

HikingLeading scientists will give approximately 50 plenary and invited presentations on the latest developments in nanoscale science and technology. We expect 600-700 attendees from around the globe to present their latest research.

In addition to a diverse technical program, vendors will exhibit the latest equipment available for nanoscale measurement science and technology. The exhibit will surround the poster presentations, providing many opportunities for discussions between attendees and vendors.

We look forward to seeing you at ICN+T 2014 and welcoming you to the beautiful Vail Cascade in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. We encourage participants to arrive a day or two early to enjoy the surrounding area while getting accustomed to the high altitude (above 2700 m).


Vail's ideal location and breathtaking mountain surroundings create the perfect natural playground for all-season adventure. With pleasantly warm summers, you can enjoy hiking, biking, fishing, strolling through the Villages and soaking up sun poolside.

Just like the hotel itself, dining at Vail Cascade is truly an event to be savored. Atwater on Gore Creek, the hotel's signature dining venue overlooking Gore Creek, fuses modern style with the region's natural elements. Locally inspired and delightfully enjoyed, Atwater serves creative American cuisine in a stylish yet comfortable environment for an exceptional dining experience. Vail Cascade Fact Sheet

High Altitude Awareness
Coming to high altitude (8,000 feet+) can trigger Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) in visitors from low elevations. The first thing most people notice is a shortness of breath, especially when exercising. In addition, the heart is likely to beat faster and one may develop nausea, unusual tiredness, headache, or have difficulty sleeping. To prevent these symptoms:

  • Plan to arrive a day in advance of the conference so you have time to comfortably settle and never push the limits of your physical capabilities.
  • Increase your water or fluid intake 3-4 times normal consumption-avoiding alcohol and caffeine.
  • Limit salty foods and increase carbohydrate consumption.
