Research in nano related topics accounts for a very significant effort at HKUST. In particular, the interdisciplinary nature of the field means that nano research involves many different disciplines in science and engineering. Our objective is to initiate a seminar series involving nano researchers in Hong Kong, China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Spain and Australia. The seminar series are structured with different themes focusing on both fundamental research, technologies and applications. The seminar series also has an important subsidiary purpose of enhancing the communication between the graduate students and postdocs of the relevant research groups, with the aim of lifting their research morale and graduate education quality.
