In the last years, intensive research activity has been devoted in the field of nanomaterials to significantly improve knowledge on their preparation, characterization, properties and potential applications. ICON2 is an interdisciplinary conference which aims at facilitating discussions and scientific interactions on chemistry, biomaterials, functional polymers, energy storage and conversion materials, nano materials, ceramics, metals, and other novel materials. The conference is divided into three sessions. The first session is dedicated to time resolved experiments. Laser-pump-synchrotron-probe based spectroscopy and related techniques (X-FEL, HHG, 2PPE) at time scales ranging from millisecond to femtosecond are the main focus of this session. The second session is focused on the engineering and characterization of organic, inorganic and hybrid nanomaterials. The third session deals with nanomaterials for energy conversion and storage.

The objective of this conference is to bring together students and researchers in a collaborative environment to present and discuss issues related to nanomaterial engineering and characterisation as well as their potential applications. It provides a platform for people working in this field to share their respective knowledge and experiences and to develop new ideas to improve nanomaterial technology.

ICON² is organised by the Synchrotron SOLEIL and the CEA Saclay and will be held at Synchrotron Soleil in the immediate vicinity of the CEA on September 9th-11th, 2015.
