Dear Colleagues,

We would like to welcome you to the International Conference on NANOstructures and nanomaterials SElf-Assembly 2024 (NanoSEA 2024) in Marseille, France. It is the 8th edition of a conference series held every two years either at the french or italian seaside. NanoSEA began in Aix-en-Provence (France) in 2006, making this event a significant moment of scientific exchange for all the researchers involved in Nanostructured Materials, 2D Materials and Self-Assembly. This conference is now recognized as a tradition and important forum that during the last two editions attracted around 250 participants in Giardini Naxos (Italy, www.nanosea2016.imm.cnr.it) and in Carqueiranne (France).


NanoSEA provides a comprehensive overview of results from synthesis (of nanomaterials and 2D materials) to properties, processing techniques, and applications. The aim of the conference is to report the inherent progress of the nanoscience, addressing theoretical and experimental approaches to understand the mechanisms of 2D material and nanostructure growth and self-assembly. It encompasses fundamental issues in crystal growth, scaling and shaping of quantum materials to provide original quantum scale devices at atomic and molecular dimensions for applications in advanced microelectronic, spintronic, photonic devices.


Moreover, the symposium Bridging the Abyss: Exploring the Confluence of Art and Science aims to explore the synergies between these disciplines, acknowledging that they are not isolated entities but rather interconnected facets of human understanding, and a key element to invite researchers to think about our relationship with the society.


We look forward to welcoming you in Marseille.
