The NNS is a high-quality international scientific symposium held every two year that brings together scientist and engineers interested in the nanoscience and nanotechnology. This symposium is held under the auspices of the Materials Research Society of Indonesia (MRS-id) and the Physics and Applied Physics Society of Indonesia (PAPSI). The 4th NNS was held in Bali on September 23-25, 2011. This year, the 5th Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Symposium (NNS 2013), in conjunction with The 2nd Japan Powder Technology Forum, was held in Surabaya on 23-25 Oktober 2013 and organized by Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS), Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) and Padjajaran University (UNPAD) and supported by PT. Grafindo Nusantara and Horiba Scientific.
The aim of this symposium is to provide an up-to-date picture of the board research field of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Various topics concerning with nanoscience and nanotechnology, e.g., nanonaterials, nanoelectronics, etc., were discussed. Experts around the world shared new knowledge and exchange the knowledge and ideas in the field. This symposium was a good opportunity for the participants to learn together, to foster cooperation, to interchange ideas, and build capacity to get ready for any upcoming challenges.
We would like to extend our thanks to the Symposium Committee and our student helpers who run all aspects of the technical organization and program of this prestigious event. Special thanks go to our Plenary, Invited and Contributed Speakers and to all of you who came to Surabaya to present and share your own work.
