“Nano-week” & NanoCommons Final Conference

June 20 - June 24

SUBMIT YOUR ABSTRACT (Until 25th February 2022): NanoWeek 2022 Abstract Submission

NanoCommons, in collaboration with the EU NanoSafety Cluster projects, organises the “Nano-week” and NanoCommons Final Conference, in Limassol, Cyprus.

The theme of the conference is Evolution of Nanosafety and materials sustainability as we transition into Horizon Europe”.

The conference and associated events (e.g., Young NanoSafety Researchers event, Training events, EU-US CoRs meeting, NanoInChi meeting, NSC meeting) will take place between 20 – 24 June 2022.

Key dates

  • 12th Jan 2022: Call for abstracts opens
  • 25th February 2022:  Closing date for abstracts for ORAL PRESENTATIONS
  • 20th April 2022: Early bird registration deadline
  • 31st May 2022: Deadline for POSTER abstract submission

Topics and Themes

1. Safe-and-Sustainable-by-Design of (nano-enabled) products & processes

Sub-Topics:

  • Tools & Approaches for the Safe-and-Sustainable-by-Design of nano-enabled materials, products & processes
  • Exposure assessment of anthropogenic nano-objects (e.g., emissions from 3D printing, brake pads & tyre wear,  synthetic textiles etc. as well as emissions along nano-enabled product life cycles).
  • Hazard assessment along the life cycle of nanomaterials and nano-enabled products
  • Integrated approaches to testing and assessment – streamlining hazard information gathering
  • Risk assessment and risk management solutions
  • Life cycle assessment of nanomaterials and their production and products
  • Implementing circularity in processes of nano-enabled production
  • Governance

2. New modelling methodologies and nanoinformatics approaches

Sub-Topics:

  • Biokinetics, systems biology & mechanistic insights for nanosafety (incl. single cell omics)
  • Nanoinformatics & Predictive Modelling (both physics-based and data-driven models)
  • High-throughput imaging, label-free methods, etc.
  • Knowledge Graphs, Adverse Outcome Pathways, Integrated Approaches to Assessment & Testing
  • Emerging digital platforms for data and modelling

3. Data Management – Databases – FAIR data

Sub-Topics:

  • Metadata approaches, including CHADA, and for models- MODA, QMRF
  • Nanosafety data management processed & tools across the data lifecycle: from experiment to knowledge
  • Database integration, sustainability, interoperability etc.
  • Identifiers (e.g., Nano-extension to InChI, representation structures, etc.)
  • Data quality assessment approaches

4. Nanomaterials go advanced – emerging challenges and foresight

Sub-Topics:

  • Characterisation of materials, and their transformations
  • Categorisation & grouping of nanomaterials, including similarity assessment
  • Emerging challenges for advanced materials
  • Process Analytical Technologies (PATs) and Metrology
  • Recovery and recycling approaches for nanomaterials and their components

5. Emerging “hot” topics in nanosafety

Sub-Topics:

  • Nanotechnology versus infectious diseases – the role of nanosafety (e.g., aerosol physics, nano-enabled detection, etc.)
  • Agriculture and food production (e.g., mixtures, interactions with allergens, etc.)
  • Aspects arising from polymer-based materials
  • Dual Use of nanoinformatics tools
  • Anything else relevant to advanced/nano materials that you would like to present but doesn’t fit in any of the listed topics!

 

We, as NanoFabNet, are also participating.
