Sixth International Symposium on Nanotechnology in Construction (NICOM6), Hong Kong

Share with :

Nanotechnology has already demonstrated surprising potential for improving the performance of construction materials, and many of these recent developments were facilitated by NICOM symposia. NICOM6 will bring together about 150 international leaders in the field to discuss the emerging nanotechnology in construction and its marketing opportunities. Potential topics for
the NICOM6 symposium illustrate the broad potential for
application of nanotechnology to challenging problems involving construction materials:

- Production, functionalization and performance of nanomaterials: nanoparticles, nanotubes and novel polymers;
- Investigation of the internal structure and properties of construction materials at the nanoscale and relation of these parameters to materials performance at the macroscale;
- Instrumentation, techniques, and metrology for nanoscale investigation of construction materials;
- Nanomodification of construction materials, including
functional films and coatings;
- Nanotechnology for high-strength and high-performance
- Nanomaterials for ultimate improvement of durability;
- Self-repairing, smart and intelligent nanostructured materials;
- Photocatalysis, air-purifying and self-cleaning materials;
- Biomimetic and nano-composite materials;
- Nano-assembly and “bottom-up” design in construction
- Modeling and simulation of nanostructure of construction materials;
- Nanotechnology and nanomaterials for energy efficient
- Nanotechnology-enabled green materials and by-product
utilization for new levels of sustainability;
- Application of nanomaterials in real world construction
- Health, safety and environmental effects related to
nanomaterials application.
