NNT 2016, the 15th International Conference on Nanoimprint and Nanoprint Technologies, the world's leading symposium on nanoimprint and nanoprint, will take place September 26-28, 2016, at INL, the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory. The date was selected to allow participants at MNE 2016 to take part in the NNT 2016. To encourage this, MNE participants will get a discounted access to NNT 2016.

In addition to paper presentations and vendor exhibits of the most recent science & technology advances, NNT 2016 will launch the third decade of Nanoimprint by introducing a set of lectures aiming to provide both newcomers and long standing participants a comprehensive overview of important technological basic concepts of NIL and Nanoprinting. To reinforce the inherent innovation capabilities for printing technologies, we have not only introduced as a bi-liner to our conference series: your platform for emerging innovation, but also included in the program a start-up session dedicated to the capture of novel ideas and to provide an overview of means and available resources for those of us with many of ideas for inventions. Inventions that with a little help, may end up as break-through innovations, either in existing companies or in start-ups.

List of Topics for Contributions:

NNT 2016 will focus the contributed part of the program in three main domains: 1) Stamps, materials and processes for nanofabrication, 2) Applications and 3) Emerging processes.

Braga is a lively city in northern Portugal, about 60 km from Porto. Founded by the romans and although one of the oldest towns in the country, it is now known for its young population. In 2012 Braga was the European Youth Capital. The region is often referred to as the "Portuguese Silicon Valley". This is due to the increasing transformation of an agriculture and trade based economy into one based on IT-services originating from many successful start-ups that emerged from the University of Minho. Find time to taste the famous Vinho Verde and don't leave without taking a leisurely stroll around the historic centre to visit some of the many churches, admire the baroque houses and historic buildings. The Atlantic Ocean is only half an hour away.
