Nanostructures, particularly those from the families of inorganic metal oxides, organic, carbon, polymers, etc. family, are very important material candidates due to their extraordinary surface-to-volume and morphology-dependent extraordinary properties suitable for various advanced technologies. The ongoing deployments in the direction of 0D (quantum dots), 1D (hybrid nanowires), 2D (from new semiconductors) and 3D networked materials have further become very relevant towards various applications, due to their excellent nanoscale features and simplicity of utilization. Due to their compact synthesis forms, they can be easily handled or integrated in the desired manner in devices or sensors. The 0D, 1D, 2D nanostructures from noble metals (Au, Ag, Cu, etc.) have found immense applications in sensing, biomedical, waveguides and telecommunications, etc. Nanostructures from metal oxides have also been very interesting (fundamental as well applied) materials due to their bandgap values (intermediate between metals and insulators), suitable for various advanced technologies. When these metal oxides and metals are combined together in hybrid nanomaterials, they become further very relevant in terms of understanding the properties and accordingly applications. Concomitantly, the carbon nanostructure family, i.e., nanodiamonds, fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, graphene, graphene oxide (GO), etc., have shown very strong potential ranging from fundamental properties to advanced electronic, energy and sensing applications and hence have been the subject of huge research attention in the last couple of decades. Recent developments in the direction of 3D carbon networks have opened an entirely new dimension in nanotechnology research. Similarly, research on 3D soft ceramics from metal oxides interconnected networks, which is currently in the main stream research focus, is very important, because it can be very helpful in up scaling the nanotechnology-related applications in modern life.

Appropriate growth strategies of different structures (0D, 1D, 2D and 3D) using simple methods, understanding their properties, their applications in different directions, etc. are still key issues. Interdisciplinary research platforms are required, which are equipped with: (i) synthesis groups for developing different nanostructures, (ii) advanced characterization techniques for understanding the structure-property relations, and (iii) application experts, who can accordingly utilize these materials in various applications. Demonstration of the recently gained advances while tackling these challenges will the main aim of the proposed symposium.
