									Vladivostok, July 14-19, 2008


The annual International Symposium on Nanostructures is chaired by two Nobel Prize winners –
Professor Zh. Alferov and Professor L. Esaki, and traditionally organized by Ioffe Physico-
Technical Institute of the RAS, which is pioneering in many directions of this impetuously
developing area. The Symposium was launched in 1993 by its Cо-Chairs. It was one of the first
in the area, which now is becoming one of the leading in modern physics and technology. The
16-th Symposium will be organized together with the Institute of Automation and Control
Processes of Far Eastern Branch of the RAS in Vladivostok from the14th to 19th July 2008.
Vladivostok is the biggest city in the Russian Far East. It has nice and original architecture, lot of
scientific, educational and cultural centers. July in Vladivostok is one of the best months. The
weather is warm enough, without exhausting heat and humidity. One of the excellent qualities of
the Sea bays around Vladivostok is their geographical position: on one side they are protected by
the Black Mountains, on the other side - by the peninsula and the continent. So, high waves do
not enter the bays, and at leisure one can practice swimming and boating, which are among the
most ancient human arts. The forest around Vladivostok is very rich and impressive. There are a
lot of different mushrooms and berries, including famous Chisandra chinensis, wild apples,
grapes and strawberries.
        The aim of this Symposium is to focus on the newest achievements in physics,
technology and applications of solid state nanostructures and bring together various groups
working actively in these very important directions all over the world. The Symposium scientific
program will cover a wide spectrum of physical phenomena, both basic and applied, and
technological aspects related to nanostructures.
