The technical structure of AVS is organized as a matrix. Members can participate in one or more Divisions or Technical Groups, each of which is focused around a major topical area. Members may also participate in Chapters and Student Chapters, which are regional organizations that focus on local area needs.

Nanoscale Science and Technology - Meetings & Symposia


Upcoming Meetings

AVS NSTD Program Brainstorming Session
Date/Time: Thursday, April 29, 2021, 11:00 am EDT (UTC -4)

What topics of Nanoscience would you like to see at conferences? The Nanoscale Science and Technology Division wants to hear about it! We invite scientists of all career stages and nano-disciplines to join us for a one-hour Zoom session to propose and discuss new themes to be incorporated into the NSTD programming in coming years. Don’t miss this opportunity to help us build the future, learn where nanoscience is going, and contribute your own ideas to help guide it forward. The insights gained from this meeting will help sculpt the program committee and scientific program for the NSTD for AVS 68. If you’d like to be part of this initiative, please join us to start the process.

Please contact Dave Czaplewski for Zoom details.


AVS NSTD Nanofab Discussion Session
Date/Time: Thursday, May 20, 2021, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM CDT (UTC -5) or 12pm – 1pm EDT (UTC -4)

Facing challenges fabricating a nanoscale device? Having difficulty with a complicated process step? Then join fabrication experts in the Nanoscale Science and Technology division of the AVS in the inaugural Nanofabrication Discussion Session.
This event is open to all levels of experience (from no experience to seasoned professionals). We will focus the discussion on various ways of realizing nanofabricated devices and avoid discussions on the merits of any proposed device. Also, corporate promotions are prohibited.
This event will be a discussion amongst nanofab enthusiasts aiming to help anyone who is looking for advice on the creation of a nanoscale device.

Submitting questions ahead of time will facilitate the discussion. You can submit your questions here.

Please contact Dave Czaplewski for Zoom details.
