Speaker announcement:

John de Mello

John de Mello is a Professor of Nanomaterials in the Department of Chemistry at Imperial College London and holds a Visiting Professorship in the Department of Chemistry at NTNU. He researches nanomaterials for use in electronic devices and sensors.

John obtained his Ph.D. in semiconductor physics from Cambridge University. In 2002, he co-founded Molecular Vision Ltd - a company specialising in the use of organic LEDs and photodiodes for chemical sensing. He has been awarded both a Royal Society Industry Fellowship and the Brian Mercer Award for Innovation in Nanotechnology. His research interests include flow chemistry, organic semiconductors, quantum dots, light-emitting diodes, solar cells and sensors. He is on the editorial boards of the Journal of Experimental Nanoscience and the Journal of Organic Semiconductors.
Our stand is up and we are spreading the word of nanotechnology.

We are located next to the Natural Science Library (realfagsbiblioteket). Come by if you want to know more about INASCON 2018 over a coffee and maybe some chocolate!

Sol Jacobsen

Sol H. Jacobsen is a Post-doctoral researcher at the institute for physics at the Norwegian University of science and Technology. She got her PhD in theoretical physics under the supervision of Associate Professor Peter Jarvis at the University of Tasmania in Australia. She also possess a joint honors degree in physics and philosophy from the University of York, UK, and worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the Freiburg Institute of Advanced Studies, Germany.

She is currently working in the QuSpin Center of Excellence in quantum spintronics, specifically with the theory for superconductive and ferromagnetic hybrids. Her research interest is mainly in fundamental quantum physics, but she also has a background in entanglement, error correction, integrated systems and quantum optics.

Ursula Gibson

Ursula Gibson is professor of physics at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. She is currently doing research on the development of optical materials, using nanotechnology.

Ursula Gibson received her Ph.D. in physics from Cornell University in 1982. She has been an associate professor at the Optical Sciences Center at the University of Arizona and at Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth. She has also held several visiting positions, including the United States Air Force Academy, NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, Tampere University of Technology in Finland, Chalmers University in Sweden and the University of Queensland in Australia. Gibson was awarded the Fulbright Scholarship in 2008 to fund research on “Nanostructured ZnO for Wood Preservation”. In 2017, she was elected to be the 2019 president of the Optical Society. Today, in addition to being professor at NTNU, Ursula Gibson simultaneously holds adjunct professorships at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology and at Dartmouth College.
INASCON team presentation part 4:

Every conference needs PR to recruit delegates and to spread the word of the event. 
We are five students who are responsible for promoting INASCON on social media.

Our responsibilities include making the logo, posters, flyers and other graphic designs, all of which can be found on our webpage. So far, we have also contacted other conferences to inform of our whereabouts and are working on a film to promote our conference. Our job is important, as the number of participants are determined by how far we have reached with our work, and how many nanotechnology students who have seen our posters or other promotion material across the globe.

In other words, our goal is to inform students across Europe and beyond. Everyone is always in a good mood when we are working with this conference and we are all excited to see the results of our work in August. We are proud to be working with so many determined students who are doing their very best to keep this conference rolling. Every month, we meet to summarize our accomplishments so far, and every time it is surprising to see how many things we have accomplished in a 30-day period. It really is inspiring to see how our project is folding itself into the conference we wish to see in August.

We are really excited to see how new opportunities will unfold during this conference and how students may see these opportunities and use them to create new ideas and get inspired.
INASCON team presentation part 3

No matter how great your speakers or how many attendees, a conference is only as good as the logistics behind it. Our logistics group keeps control over all that happens during the conference. 
We, the logistics group, consist of 3 nanotechnology students. Our task is to ensure that the visiting participants have a place to live and eat as well as transportation to academic and social events. Additionally, we are responsible for setting up an overview and complete schedule of the conference, so INASCON 2018 can go as smooth as possible. This requires a close collaboration with the academics group and social group. It is incredibly exciting to arrange a large conference like INASCON. It requires a lot of planning in advance, and we are constantly working to make the conference amazing, while leaving participants with a wonderful experience, more knowledge about nanoscience and nanotechnology, and a new and larger network.
INASCON team presentation part 2:

A conference has to offer more than just the academic lectures. It's the perfect social arena to get to know people in your field of study from around the world. Our social group deals with this big and important part of Inascon 2018.

The social group is responsible for the social activities during INASCON. These include dinners, evening plans, entertainment, and activities during breaks. In addition, we organize social events for everyone involved in the planning of INASCON throughout the year. We strive towards creating a social program that will include and appeal to all the participants of the conference, regardless of background. In addition, a successful social program will let the participants get in touch with and inspire each other academically. Being able to contribute to the planning of INASCON 2018 is exciting, challenging and very rewarding. We look forward to continuing our work with the conference and to be a part of the final INASCON in August!
Today we're having a joint effort reaching out to businesses. We're proud to have so many hard-working volunteers helping out when needed.
We have several different groups that together constitute team INASCON2018! Each group works with different fields, and a total of 34 students are working hard to make INASCON 2018 perfect! We asked each group to present themselves to you and we are starting with the academics group:

We in the academics group are the ones responsible for the academical part of the INASCON program. Our task is to fill the conference with content that is academically interesting in a motivating and inspiring way. We put together a scientific profile for the conference, invite speakers, organize Ph.D.-presentations, and do many other tasks. Being in the academics group gives us a unique opportunity to connect with researchers that we otherwise wouldn’t have had the opportunity to contact. A part of our task has also been to find other technical universities around the world, to find both potential speakers and participants to the conference. Seeing all the different technical universities around the world is really cool!
Our PR manager is always on duty - even with a broken leg! Our roll-up has now been rolled up #inasconorway
