Previously, in the first announcement, the International and Organizing Committees of IWAMSN 2016 have proposed to organize the Workshop in Dong Hoi City, Quang Binh Province, with the intention to invite the participants to have a tour to Phong Nha – Ke Bang natural heritage.

However, due to the environment pollution accident recently happened in the coastal waters near Dong Hoi, the loacation of IWAMSN 2016 must be moved again to Ha Long City.

In the programme of social activities of the Workshop there will be the tours both to Ha Long bay and to Yen Tu, a nearby mountainous natural heritage and also a famous national religious heritage of Buddhism in Vietnam.

Following the 6th and 7th International Workshops on Advanced Materials Science and Nanotechnology (IWAMSN2012 and IWAMSN2014) in Ha Long City, the 8th IWAMSN co-organized by the National Institute of Materials Science (NIMS) and Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology (VAST) will be held in Ha Long City during the period 8th-12th November 2016. The scientific area includes five scientific topics and consists of five corresponding Sections:

1.  Materials for Electronics and Photonics (code: MEP)

2.  Nanostructured Materials and Devices (code: NMD)

3.  Nanotechnology in Life Science and Environment Technology (code: NLE)

4.  New Materials for Energy (code: NME)

5.  Two-dimensional Hexagonal Semiconductor (code: THS)

This Workshop is an External Activity of Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics (APCTP), Pohang, Korea.
