The EMN meeting began in 2008 as a small workshop held at a traditional villa in Orland, Florida. Since then we have organized five successful workshops under the theme of Energy, Materials and Nanotechnology. In honor of the 2008 Orlando conference, these workshops were grouped under a conference series entitled “Villa Conference”. The Villa Conference series have grown beyond the traditional villa setting and have had continued success in 2009 (St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands), 2010 (Santorini, Greece), 2011 (Las Vegas, Nevada) , 2012 (Las Vegas, Nevada) and 2013 (Houston, Texas).
The 2013 EMN Fall Meeting will take place at Orlando,Florida. The EMN Fall will not only be a time to enjoy the company of fellow researchers in the field, but also a time to have fun with friends and family! And what better place than in Orlando Florida, the family entertainment capital of the world, home of Walt Disney World, SeaWorld, and Universal Studios Florida; one can also enjoy the Kennedy Space Center and the beaches around Orlando. Orlando’s numerous vacations spots afford an individual with many opportunities for leisure. We eourage you to give yourself some time for recreational pursuits!
