AMN-4 Advanced Materials and Nantechnology conference was held in February 2009 at The University of Otago in Dunedin.

Professor Sally Brooker and Professor Keith Gordon headed the organising team. 331 delegates attended, of whom 181 were from New Zealand and 150 were interna­tional. The registration was very pleasing considering that travel to the southern city is a little more complex.

The campus at Otago provided a convenient and beautiful location for the conference while the city took the edge off the cool weather by providing a warm welcome for delegates. A successful and enjoyable conference!

AMN-5 will be held in Wellington in February 2011.
