Advances in Nanotechnology (RAN'20)

October 11, 2020 - October 13, 2020 | Lisbon, Portugal
Due to COVID'19 pandemic it will be done VIRTUALLY

The RAN'20 Congress is composed
of 2 conferences

IMPORTANT: We have been carefully monitoring the likely situation for our upcoming congress regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and as a result, we have made the decision to hold the 5th World Congress on Recent Advances in Nanotechnology (RAN'20) virtually on October 11 – 13, 2020. As our first priority is to the health and safety of our participants, we believed that it was necessary to take the action.

Please note that we will publish the proceedings of the congress including all accepted papers and extension abstracts prior to the virtual congress. This is to make sure that we can meet the expectation of the authors regarding the publication of their papers in the congress proceedings.

All registered authors with accepted papers for oral or poster presentations should prepare a recorded video presentation or PowerPoint slides with voice and submit it to the congress administrator (info@rancongress.com) at least 15 days prior to the congress.

  • Oral Presentations : 15 minutes of video presentation
  • Poster Presentations: 3-5 minutes of video presentation (Actual poster does not need to be included)

All presentations will be presented by the session chairs which will be followed by a few minutes of Questions and Answers. We would appreciate if authors can make sure to be available for the Q&A session.

Apart from the virtual congress, the 6th World Congress on Recent Advances in Nanotechnology (RAN'21) will also be held physically in Lisbon, Portugal in June 14 – 16 , 2021. Therefore, our participants can choose there options for the attendance.

The congress proceedings will be indexed by Scopus and Google Scholar.

RAN is aimed to become one of the leading international annual congresses in the field of nanotechnology. The congress is composed of 2 conferences. While each conference consists of an individual and separate theme, the 2 conferences share considerable overlap, which prompted the organization of this congress.

ICNNFC'20 - 5th International Conference on Nanomaterials, Nanodevices, Fabrication and Characterization
NDDTE'20 - 5th International Conference on Nanomedicine, Drug Delivery, and Tissue Engineering

This congress will provide excellent opportunities to the scientists, researchers, industrial engineers, and university students to present their research achievements and to develop new collaborations and partnerships with experts in the field.


Submissions in the form of extended abstracts, short papers, and full manuscripts are welcome. .

  • all submitted papers will be peer-reviewed
  • the congress proceedings will be published under an ISSN and ISBN number
  • each paper will be assigned a unique DOI number by Crossref
  • the conference proceedings will be indexed by Scopus and Google Scholar
  • the proceedings will be permanently archived in Portico (one of the largest community-supported digital archives in the world).
  • selected papers from the congress will be submitted for possible publication in the International Journal of Theoretical and Applied Nanotechnology (publication fees may apply)
