13th Seminar on Quantitative Microscopy (QM)
9th Seminar on Nanoscale
Calibration, Standards and Methods
|The white cathedral of Helsinki
|Evening view to Market Square from the sea
NanoScale 2023 took place in the conference centre Technopolis Ruoholahti (location map) in the West of the centre of Helsinki, just 2 km from the heart of the town (i. e. from Market Square, Cathedral, Esplanades...) from October 10th to 12th, 2023. After a break of 4 years due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it was generally appreciated that the conference was fully in person (with one hybrid session as open stakeholder meeting).
Deadline for MST submission extended: now February 29th, 2024 !!!
Please see the landing page for NanoScale MST submission Please also see below.
Who would like to host the next NanoScale, currently scheduled for autumn 2026?
Please contact the NanoScale office until Feb 29th, 2024, if your institute is interested.
106 participants from 24 countries on all continents took part at NanoScale in Helsinki.
This is about as many as in the record-year 2019!
Warm thanks to all participants for their inspiring scientific exchange and so many good conversations!
A total of 83 presentations were given - Many thanks to all authors!
31 oral presentations, 52 posters (see program at a glance - pdf)
As by far more abstracts for oral presentation had been submitted, the Scientific Committee reviewed all abstracts for talks based on a scoring system to decide whether these papers are accepted as a talk or as a poster.
In addition to the scientific talks and posters, an excursion to the VTT MIKES labs was organized on Thursday afternoon. Please see Program for details. Further lab tours were offered in conjunction with the other meetings of the Length Metrology Week on other days. We thank our colleagues at VTT MIKES for hosting so many groups of guests in their labs.
How to submit
NanoScale offers peer-reviewed publication of full papers in a (virtual) Special Issue of Measurement Science and Technology (MST) to all authors of NanoScale 2023. As so-called Transformative and Institutional Open Access Agreements have been concluded recently, most authors can publish in MST on an open access basis at no cost to themselves. Please write your manuscript according to the rules applicable for MST, submit it via the special issue MST landing page or directly on the MST submission interface and select “NanoScale 2023” from the drop-down menu at the bottom of step 1
Deadline for submission: originally set to mid-December 2023, but now extended until February 29th, 2024 !!!
Once published, all NanoScale participants will be granted free access to all papers (incl. those that are not open access) of this Special Issue for a given time.
Special Sessions and Labtours
NanoScale 2023 included Special Sessions on "High-speed SPM measurements of functional properties of nanostructures" and "3D roughness & dimensional measurements using optical 3D microsopy and optical distance sensors" (EMPIR projects 20IND08 MetExSPM and 20IND07 TracOptic). Lab tours to the metrology labs of VTT MIKES on the Otaniemi campus in Espoo were offered to the participants, too.
The Book ob Abstracts
All submissions are included in the Book of Abstracts that was handed out to the participants upon check-in and made available to them for download as pdf-file.
