The Institute for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (INST) of Sharif University of Technology founded biennial conferences on Nanostructures with special support of Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council (INIC) in 2006 after a timely perception of the need of scientific and technological society to interact, exchange and discuss about the newfangled field of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology which had been experiencing fast progress.
In this regard, Sharif Workshop on Nanostructures (SWNS2006) was held in March 2006 as a start to achieve this target. Second Conference on Nanostructures (NS2008) and Third Conference on Nanostructures (NS2010) continued the path with more variant topics and more participant. Facing such a widely welcome, the Forth Conference on Nanostructures (ICNS4, 2012) was held with a high emphasize on participation of international professors and researchers and hosted participants from more than 30 countries all over the world. Sharif University of Technology continued the successful event with the Fifth International Conference on Nanostructures (ICNS5, 2014) hosting many distinguished professors such as Sir. Andre Geim (2010 Physics Noble Laureate) and Michael Gratzel (2010 millennium Technology Grand prize winner). Now we are honored to announce that the successful history of the Nanostructures Conference will continue to 2016 and the Sixth International Conference on Nanostructures (ICNS6) will be held on March 7-10, 2016 in beautiful Kish Island/Iran. ICNS6 would be honored to host national and international researchers from all over the world and waits for a worthy welcome to its participants.
