Nanoscience and nanotechnology are prominent research fields, conduits for varied technological breakthroughs and innovative products, yet still a highly active frontier for new discoveries.  While the initial focus of the “nanotechnology revolution” has been upon production and applications of “free standing” nanoparticles and nanostructures, usually dispersed in solutions, the significance of interfaces has become apparent in many nanostructure-based systems and practical devices.  Furthermore, interfaces have been shown to have pivotal roles in shaping the structural features and physical properties of nanostructures produced upon them.  Indeed, research focusing on interfaces between nano-systems and other substances - both interfaces that are directly involved in the synthesis/assembly processes as well as interfaces serving as functional platforms for nanostructure practical applications - have gained a prominent stage in nanoscience and technology research.  In particular, patterning of interfaces with nanomaterials is of utmost importance, where communicating between the macro to the nano-world and addressing individual nano-objects is already one of the challenges in this multidisciplinary field. The proposed Workshop is designed to illuminate the diverse aspects of this multidisciplinary field, stimulate conversations among scientists active in this field, and highlight research efforts by Israeli scientists who have established major research programs focusing on nano-systems and interfaces.
