INASCON 2018 started with a bang (figuratively and literally) on Tuesday 💥, followed by an amazing opening cermony with speeches (even from the prime minister of Norway). Next up was a fun experiment show with Forsker-Frederic. Then we had an inspiring presentation from our first invited speaker, sir James Fraser Stoddart, who talked about his life after recieving the Nobel Prize in chemistry. Later we attempted to do the world smallest ribbon cutting 🎗✂️ (2 micrometre long and 50 nanometre thick)! Lastly, we took the tram to Lian Restaurant and had a wonderful dinner. A fine end of the beginning of INASCON 2018! ❤️

The first application deadline having now passed, we see a glimpse of how many participants are comming to Trondheim in August. With participants from over 10 different countries and well over 100 participants, this seems to be one of the  biggest INASCON conferences ever. We are very happy that the turnout has been so great.

However, we still have a few places left. We are therefore extending the deadline for registration to July 1st, 23:59. After this time, it will no longer be possible to register for the conference.

INASCON team presentation part 5:

Managing the finances is key to a well run conference. Our financial group makes sure we stay within budget.

We are three nanotechnology students in the finance group, who have the main responsibility for managing budgets, keeping accounts, and seeking sponsorship support from various institutions. Now, in the start-up phase, we have used most of our time to set up a budget while having a close dialog with NTNU NanoLab. It is quite challenging to find a balance because of uncertain revenues. However, this has been very educational! Additionally, we have written sponsor applications and sent them out. The fun part of planning and arranging INASCON might be all the exciting ideas that people come up with during meetings, working with amazing people and all the social activities we do together. We look forward to seeing the results in August and think this is going to be the best INASCON ever!
