April 4, 2017 | 2 PM - 6 PM | Barcelona, SpainView the Workshop Flyer
International ASET Inc. is proud to present Dr. Vladimir A. Baulin (Universitat Rovira I Virgili, Spain) and Prof. Elena P. Ivanova (Swinburne University of Technology, Australia) as organizers of a dedicated workshop for the 2nd World Congress on Recent Advances in Nanotechnology (RAN'17)
The workshop will be held on April 4th, 2017 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Registration for the workshop will be 121 EURs (VAT included) and separate from the main conferences. Workshop attendees will receive a certificate of participation.
The registration deadline for the workshop is on March 10, 2017.
Vladimir A. Baulin
Universitat Rovira i Virgili, Spain
Dr. Vladimir A. Baulin leads a group of Soft Mater Theory at the University Rovira i Virgili, Tarragona, Spain which has strong expertise in theory of polymer physics, soft matter theory and biophysics. He is a Coordinator of EU funded Initial Training Network SNAL.
Elena P. Ivanova
Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia
Prof. Elena P. Ivanova leads Nano-biotechnology group at Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia focusing on design, fabrication and operation of planar micro-devices; immobilization of bio-molecules and micro-organisms in micro/nano/environments, bacterial taxonomy and bacterial interactions with macro/micro/nano-structured surfaces.
The meeting is focused on the discovery of anti-bacterial properties of nanostructured surfaces and highlight the progress and future directions in this field.

The project at ResearchGate: https://www.researchgate.net/project/Anti-bacterial-nanostructures-and-biomimetic-materials
The workshop will cover recent advances in design of the anti-microbial nano-structured surfaces including inspirational theoretical modelling and fabrication of biomimetic surfaces, their characterisation and in-vitro/in vivo validation of an exploitable end product.
Synthetic biocidal nanostructured surfaces could be applied, for instance, for decreasing the likelihood of contracting bacterial infections, for the prevention of infections after implant surgery. Biocidal surfaces would reduce the current dependency on antibiotics and chemical disinfection for the control of pathogenic bacteria. An in-depth understanding of mechano-biocidal effects would enable to optimize synthetic biocidal surfaces in a rational and controlled way.
