Thank you for your participation at the conference!
You are warmly invited to the 11th International Symposium on Electrochemical Micro & Nanosystem Technologies (EMNT2016), taking place from 17th of August untill 19th of August. EMNT2016 will continue the series of successful symposia held in Grevenbroich (1996), Tokyo (1998), Garmisch-Partenkirchen (2000), Düsseldorf (2002), Tokyo (2004), Bonn (2006), Ein-Gedi (2008), Cannes Mandelieu(2010), Linz (2012) and Okinawa (2014). EMNT2016 will bring together researchers from various fields of micro/nanoscopic science and technologies and related devices, systems, and processes. The symposium is a co-organisation between (SURF-VUB, CHANI-ULB, CTE-TUDelft, UMons and ART-UAntwerpen). The main theme of EMNT2016 will be reliable electrochemical data at the micro and nano scale for Energy, Environment, and Health, encompassing fundamental and applied research related to electrochemical systems, fabrication technologies and modelling.

Brussels is the capital for 500 million Europeans, and is an important place for decision making and debate. But it's also a metropolis with a personal touch, internationally renowned for its conviviality, right in the heart of Belgium. It's a global and proudly multicultural city... it's both historical and modern, a meeting point of North and South, and where the differences are maintained yet meld together harmoniously.
Its cuisine can meet any challenge, its fashion is paraded on the world's leading catwalks, its Art Nouveau treasures offer more than 200 opportunities to be admired, and its comic strip heroes have recently become Hollywood stars.
Venue & Accommodation
EMNT2016 will be held at the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences in Brussels (www.naturalsciences.be). It houses the biggest dinosaur gallery in Europe. The museum is located in the heart of Brussels, close to the European quarter. It takes about 20 minutes (13km) to reach the museum from Brussels National airport (Zaventem) by taxi/car. There are also several public transport options (www.stib-mivb.be). The closest train station, Brussels-Luxembourg, is a five-minute walk from the museum.
There are many hotels in the neighborhood that have very convenient locations (Radisson Red (newly opened), Radisson BLU EU Hotel Brussels, Sofitel Brussels Europe, Renaissance Brussels Hotel …).
The Radisson Red Hotel Brussels has blocked a number of rooms for our conference, on a special rate. Click here to book a room for the conference. The promotional code is "EMNT16". You can book a room for 70€ per night.
The social program will include a welcome reception, an excursion and the conference dinner. The excursion will be a guided walk on Friday afternoon through Brussels, highlighting the beautiful and famous Art Nouveau architecture, combined with a Belgian beer tasting. The conference dinner will be scheduled on Thursday. Details are to be announced.
