Dear IFN Researchers: The Institute for Functional Nanomaterials (IFN) is accepting applications for Summer Doctoral Internships and Summer Undergraduate Internships exclusively in the area of Nanotechnology. Below is the information...
“Art and science are two fields that value life, finding the unknown and experimental action. Undoubtedly the reflective look of the artists to the immediate reality has been tied to advances and discoveries of science.”

To participate you must be affiliated to the Institute of Functional Nanomaterials. You cannot designate another person to show your artwork for you.
Submissions are limited to one image per contestant and should be related to the science components of Institute of Functional Material Interdisciplinary Research Areas. Multiple submissions by a single contestant will be disqualified.
Images may be obtained by any material imaging technique. They can also be the result of modeling and simulation, or can be obtained by combining multiple images into one artistic image. Because the focus is on art, the aesthetic rather than scientific quality of the image is the key element in the competition. Nevertheless, the images must have some connection to nanomaterials science.
Format: All submitted images must include a short description of the technique used, the object that was imaged and any special conditions. In addition, the submitter's name and e-mail address must be given. If selected as a finalist, the image and caption (24-point size) should be made ready for mounting on a sturdy backing board at the meeting. Do not frame your image! Overall dimensions should not exceed 22x28 inches. Mounting boards of this size, along with display easels and appropriate mounting materials, will be provided by IFN
