Dear Colleagues, on behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is a great pleasure for us to invite you to attend the 5th Asian School-Conference on Physics and Technology of Nanostructured Materials (ASCO-NANOMAT 2020). The meeting is organized by Institute of Automation and Control Processes of Far Eastern Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences and Far Eastern Federal University. The ASCO-NANOMAT 2020 will take place from July 30 to August 03, 2020 in the Conference Hall of Far Eastern Federal University (Vladivostok, Russia). The Organizing Committee is making every effort to ensure that your participation is being pleasant, scientifically fruitful and giving rise to new ideas, contacts and cooperation. We hope that forth meeting as the previous ones will leave in your memory for a long time.

Vladivostok is located in the Russian Far East, geographically close to Asian Countries: China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, India and Australia. Therefore, one of the aims of the school-conference is to bridge Asian and European scientific ideas through the Russian science where both of them are presented. The ASCO-NANOMAT 2020 is intended as a forum for scientists and technologists from Asian and European universities, academic institutes and industry at which they might present their latest findings and develop new synergies on Physics and Technology of Nanostructured Materials and all related subjects. There is a hope that the ASCO-NANOMAT 2020 is promoting new scientific contacts and meetings between noted and young participants in future. We invite contributions on all aspects of nanostructured materials for modern and future industry.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee,

Professor Nikolay GALKIN

Chair of ASCO-NANOMAT 2020
