Event Details

Join PerkinElmer and SFU at Nanolytica 2019 on May 2nd!


This symposium brings together industrial, government, and academic researchers to discuss recent developments and challenges, and future opportunities at the interface of the analytical sciences and nanotechnology.


Presentations will discuss:

  • New techniques and needs to analyze nanoscale materials
  • Use of nanoscale materials to develop new analytical techniques
  • Challenges and needs for analytical capabilities in nanotechnology
  • Importance to life sciences, energy, environment, and other sectors

Registration begins at 8:00 am. A series of oral and poster presentations start at 8:45 am from researchers in academic, industry and government sectors. The event concludes with a networking and social period starting at 6:00 pm, following the awards ceremony for all of the poster presenters. There will be prizes for the best poster presentations in each category (undergraduates, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows), including an Apple iPad for the best graduate student and postdoctoral fellow presentations!*


*To be considered for the poster competition you must have your poster in place before 8:30 am on May 2, 2019.  Plan accordingly as registration can take up to 15 min.
