AMN-5 Wellington 2011

The 5th biennial conference on Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology was held at the Wellington Convention Centre, (Michael Fowler Centre and the Wellington Town Hall) from 5 to 11 February 2011. This was a very successful event, with 508 attendees (including sponsors) representing 56 countries.

The conference programme included three Keynote speakers (Nobel Laureate Professor Sir Anthony Leggett, [Illinois], Professor Sir Richard Friend, [Cambridge], and Professor Neil W Ashcroft [Cornell]), 25 plenary speakers, and 220 oral contributions to the mini-symposia.

In addition, 245 delegates presented posters during the two poster sessions. As well as many highly regarded world leading scientists, it was good to see that the delegates included 152 postgraduate students.
