Queenstown will host the 8th International Conference on Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology in February 2017.


AMN8 is the eighth in a biennial series of meetings that focus on the latest research in advanced materials and nanotechnology. It will be held in Queenstown from 12-16 February 2017.

As with previous conferences, this event includes a range of presentations, cutting-edge talks, interactive presentations and social events. The intimate scale of AMN conferences and the broad interests of fellow delegates offer many opportunities for networking and interdisciplinary discussions.

Callaghan Innovation is an event sponsor, and will also host a lunchtime session on Tuesday 14 February featuring representatives from three technology incubators. Called 'Incubate your ideas', the session will be hosted by Elena Higgison (Callaghan Innovation), Carl Jones (WNT Ventures), Brett Oliver (Astrolab) and Stephen Hampson (powerHouse). They'll talk about how they can help you to commercialise your technology.

12-16 February 2017
