Nano Seminar Series 2009 - 2011

The Nano Seminar Series (NSS) is co-sponsored by WMINST with Dr. William Mong donation, the School of Science, the School of Engineering, Department of Physics, Nano Science and Technology Program and a RGC Collaborative Research Fund Project (project number HKUST9/CRF/08). The NSS consists of 12 seminars.

 

 

Nano Seminar Series 2013 - 2015

NSS is organized by WMINST from 2013 to 2015.  It involves nano researchers in HK, the Chinese Mainland, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore and Spain. The seminar series is structured with different themes focusing on both fundamental research, technologies and applications. The seminar series also has an important subsidiary purpose of enhancing the communication between the graduate students and postdocs of the relevant research groups. It consists of 10 seminars.

WMINST has sponsored and organized  the Best Paper Award, which was held in February, 2011.  There were four submissions.  The four candidates gave presentation for the WMINST Steering Committee to select the awardee.  Mr. Chen Shuyu, PhD student of the Nano Science and Technology Program, was awarded the Best Paper Award and the amount of award is HK$10,000.  Mr. Wong Tai Lun and Miss Zhang Mengying, also PhD students of the Nano Science and Technology program, won the first runner-up and second runner-up respectively.  The amount of award to Mr. Wong Tai Lun is HK$5,000 and that to Miss Zhang Mengying is HK$3,000.

 

 

East Asian Postgraduate Workshop on Nanoscience and Technology 2011

WMINST is one of the sponsors of the East Asian Postgraduate Workshop on Nanoscience and Technology at HKUST in 2011 with support from Dr. William Mong Man Wai and the Shun Hing Education and Charity Fund Ltd. This workshop aims to set up a platform specifically for postgraduates involved in nanoscience and technology research, particularly in the East Asian region, to share their most recent work and research experience, and most importantly to seize the rare opportunity to initiate and establish international collaborative projects at the postgraduate level. Postgraduates will be able to obtain a global perspective of their research directions and often intuitions through communicating with other postgraduates working in associated disciplines of nanoscience and technology research.
