July 29-31, 2020 Singapore

Due to coronavirus outbreak the International Conference on Nano Research and Development (ICNRD-2020) has been postponed to July 29-31, 2020.


The International Conference on Nano Research and Development (ICNRD-2020) is going to be held in Singapore from July 29-31, 2020. On behalf of the organizing committee, we invite the participants from all over the world to take part in this splendid event. With the theme “Breakthrough and Innovation in Nano Science and Technology”, ICNRD-2020 is aiming to bring you the latest research progress and innovation on Nano science and technology. 3 days agenda will be comprised of Plenary Forum, Breakout Sessions, Young Scientist Forum, Poster Sessions covering the topics from Breakthrough in Basic Research of Nano, Advances and Innovations in Nano World to Nanotechnology Applications. ICNRD-2020 will be a best platform for the leading academicians, scientists, researchers, engineers, practitioners to share their research achievement and indulge in interactive discussions and technical program at the event. There will be also a space for companies and institutions to present their technology, service, products, and innovations. Finally, we hope ICNRD-2020 will be an inspiration to influence for future research and development of Nano science and technology. Wish all the participants will have a fruitful conference experiences, as well as explore the beauty of Singapore.


Dr. Jeffrey Brinker, Distinguished Professor, The University of New Mexico, USA; Member of the National Academy of Engineering, Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences
Dr. Brinker has made numerous pioneering contributions to processing, characterization, and understanding of porous and composite nanostructured materials. Moreover, using this body of materials synthesis approaches, Jeff developed new classes of nanoparticle-based therapeutics for treatment of cancer and rare and infectious diseases. Furthermore he was one of the first to recognize and champion the need for multidisciplinary materials research, actively engaging chemists in materials science. Dr. Brinker pioneered sol-gel-science and materials synthesis from soluble molecular precursors. He combined sol-gel processing with molecular self-assembly to create new classes of nanoscale materials for applications in energy and human health. Dr. Brinker is currently one of two Sandia National Laboratory Fellows (the highest technical position at Sandia) and Distinguished and Regent’s Professor at the University of New Mexico (the highest honors bestowed upon UNM faculty) with joint appointments in the departments of Chemical and Biological Engineering, Molecular Genetics and Microbiology, and the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center.


Dr. Tai-Shung Chung, Provost’s Chair Professor, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, National University of Singapore, Singapore; Fellow of the Academy of Engineering Singapore

Dr. Chung’s research focuses on polymeric membranes. In 2005-2008, he worked as a Senior Consultant for Hyflux, led and built its membrane research team. He became a Fellow in the Academy of Engineering Singapore in 2012 and received IChemE (Institute of Chemical Engineers, UK) Underwood Medal for exceptional research in separations and Singapore President’s Technology Award in 2015. He was a highly cited researcher in Chemical Engineering & Materials Science and Engineering by the Elsevier and Shanghai Global Ranking in 2016 and received Distinction Award in Water Reuse and Conservation from International Desalination Association (IDA) in 2016. He is also a highly cited researcher from Clarivate Analytics in 2018 and 2019.

Singapore is a city as well as a country in South East Asia, is a little red dot located just off the southern tip of Peninsular. Singapura is a Malay word. Singa means Lion and pura means City. That is why Singapore is also known as Lion City. This Lion City was founded as a British Colony in 1918 and it had been developed into one of the world's busiest port today. You may find lots of modern skyscrapers everywhere mixed together with a taste of traditional Chinese, Indian and Malay influences buildings. Combining with great taste food, fantastic shopping, exciting nightlife, first-class airport and connections to the rest of the world, this Lion City is a great stopover.
