2018 NanoScientific Symposium Korea, which will become a community for AFM researchers in Korea, will be held at the Korea Advanced Nano Fab Center from August 22 to 23, 2018. This event hosted by Korean Society of Microscopy, organized by SPM Research Society and supported by Park Systems Corp., Korea NanoTechnology Research Society and Korea Advanced Nano Fab Center, will focus on introducing and sharing various AFM application technologies with experts in Korea’s nanotechnology and AFM fields. In particular, a tutorial session will be held on Wednesday, August 22, with a lecture on the basic principles and applications of AFM by Professor Yunseok Kim of Sungkyunkwan University, and an user experience session of AFM. We’re looking forward to sharing information on the latest trends in AFM application technology and increasing exchanges between AFM researchers at the NanoScientific Symposium Korea. We hope that many of you will participate and help us make this event a success.
