This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
The field of colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals is flourishing at the frontiers of discovery in nanoscience and nanotechnology. Recent advances in synthesis have enabled unprecedented properties and phenomena in diverse materials systems, including novel perovskite, pnictide, and multinary nanocrystals. Atomistic understanding of surfaces, dopants, and defects is facilitating systems-level design and integration of nanocrystals with other materials for applications in displays, (opto)electronics, energy, catalysis, biology, medicine, and sensing. Innovations in assembly, oriented attachment, and surface chemistry herald high-performance nanocrystal solids and metamaterials with emergent collective properties. The 2020 GRC brings the community together to discuss major advances, pressing challenges, and new directions, build collaborations, and foster the next generation of scholars in this vibrant interdisciplinary field.
