Since 1995 the Center of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (CNyN), UNAM, Campus Ensenada, has carried out uninterruptedly this event whose main goal is presenting the latest results on Materials Science from research performed in prestigious institutions of Mexico and abroad. The first sixteen editions, the Symposium was named “Simposio en Ciencia de Materiales”; years later, between 2012 and 2014, the Symposium name was changed according to its new international scope and a change name of our institution: Centro de Nanociencias y Nanotecnologia (CNyN). In these years this event was named International Symposium on Nanoscience and Nanomaterials. In 2015 the event went back to a national scope and its name switched to Simposio de Nanociencias y Nanomateriales. From 2018 the Symposium of Nanoscience and Nanomaterials (IV SNN) has been jointly organized by CNyN and CICESE (Centro de Investigación Científica y Estudios Superiores de Ensenada). To date, there has been 25 editions of this academic event presenting the opportunity to stimulate interactions, to exchange experiences and to strengthen or initiate new collaborations.

This 2020 edition, the Symposium of Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology (SNN2020) will take place on April 20-23, 2020 in Ensenada, B.C. We hope we meet you here.
