Dubai, The United Arab Emirates

To continue its success of last events at Las Vegas, USA (2013), Hong Kong (2014), Phuket, Thailand (2015), Prague, Czech Republic (2016), San Sebastian, Spain (2017), Rome, Italy (2018) and Hawii, USA (2019). The 8th International Conference on Small Science (ICSS 2020) will be held at Ibis One Central Hotel, Dubai, The United Arab Emirates from April 13 to 17, 2020. The conference will bring together the international research communities from various scientific disciplines, including materials science, physics, chemistry and biology, to discuss new and exciting advances that involve microscale and nanoscale materials, techniques and methodologies. ICSS 2020 will be a few days of intense collaboration, exciting small science, and great social occasions.

The Dubai is a city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates known for luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture and a lively nightlife scene. Burj Khalifa, an 830m-tall tower, dominates the skyscraper-filled skyline. At its foot lies Dubai Fountain, with jets and lights choreographed to music. On artificial islands just offshore is Atlantis, The Palm, a resort with water and marine-animal parks.
