The 10th International Workshop on Advanced Materials Science and Nanotechnology (IWAMSN) Postponed to July 2021 due to COVID-19
On behalf of the Institute of Materials Science – the organizer of IWAMSN series, I regret to inform you that we have made the very difficult decision to postpone the 10th IWAMSN originally scheduled for November 8–11, 2020 in Da Nang Vietnam to July 2021 due to the ongoing situation of COVID-19 pandemic.
Despite the fact that Vietnam has successfully contained COVID-19 and goes nearly 70 consecutive days without new infection in the community. But the COVID-19 pandemic in Vietnam is part of the ongoing worldwide pandemic of coronavirus. Vietnam’s borders still remain closed to foreign visitors. Meanwhile, in many countries and regions, the governments recommend self-quarantine and many academic institutions have restricted employee travel, preventing many of our participants and speakers from attending the 10th IWAMSN in November 2020.
Protecting the health, safety, and well-being of our speakers, participants, staffs and supporters is paramount, and serves as the reason for our decision to postpone the IWAMSN for the first time in our 20-year history. Put simply, we believe that rescheduling the 10th IWAMSN is the right thing to do during this time.
If you have further questions, please contact IWAMSN Secretariats, [email protected] Updated information will be posted on the website, www.iwamsn.ac.vn, in few weeks ahead.
Thank you for your understanding and unwavering commitment to the 10th IWAMSN.

Local Organizing Committees
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we would like to warmly invite you to attend the 10th International Workshop on Advanced Materials Science and Nanotechnology (IWAMSN), which will be held in Da Nang, Vietnam from November 8th to 11th, 2020. The venue for the Workshop is the Pullman Da Nang Beach Resort, which overlooks one of the most beautiful beach in Vietnam. IWAMSN has been a major international scientific platform organized once every two years since 2000 to bring together international researchers from the diverse areas of advanced materials and nanotechnology as well as their applications in the industry and real world.
The Workshop is co-organized by the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology and National Institute of Materials Science of Japan. The organization of the Workshop is also strongly supported by many professionals from different leading universities and institutes in the world.
Following the success of its nine editions, the IWAMSN 2020 will be an international forum for introducing, debating, and discussing on boiled topics in nanotechnology and advanced materials science. We greatly appreciate your attendance and contribution to the success of the IWAMSN 2020. Moreover, it will be a chance for you to explore not only Da Nang – but also nearby charming cities, Hue – the historical capital with the richest traditions and Hoi An – one of the oldest towns with unique cultural heritages in Vietnam.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Da Nang this November.
