About the symposiums


Advances in Microfluidics & Nanofluidics (AMN) aims to provide a forum to promote scientific exchange and to foster closer networks and collaborative ties between leading international micro/nanofluidics researchers across various disciplines from engineering, physics, chemistry, biology, material science and biotechnology. Former meetings were held in Hong Kong (2009), Singapore (2011), Dalian, China (2012), Notre Dame, USA (2013), Taipei, Taiwan (2014), Beijing, China (2015).   The scope of AMN is deliberately broad and interdisciplinary, encompassing the latest advances and the most innovative developments in micro/nanoscale science and technology. The 2017 meeting will will be focussed on New Directions in Electrokinetic Analyte Pretreatment, Manipulation and Detection Strategies  for Biomicrofluidic Applications.

Advisory committee


The ISMM is a series of symposia that started in Kanazawa, Japan in 2009. It is now an annual international symposium which is held in Asia and Oceania regions: Hong Kong (2010), Seoul, Korea (2011), Hsinchu, Taiwan (2012), Xiamen, China (2013), Singapore (2014), Japan (2015) and Hong Kong (2016). The 2017 symposium will focus on separation science, microfluidic technologies, nano-bio devices, biomedicine, microsensors, and micro-nano engineering.

APCBM is a bi-annual meeting established especially for the Asian-Pacific region to attract researchers in the field of chemical micro reaction technology to contribute with their research results in the field of chemical and biological processing in micro-structured reactors or chips including investigation of micro flow patterns (continuous flow, droplets, emulsions, spray, etc.), as well as simulation, modelling and fabrication.  The 1st  APCBM was held in Hong Kong in 2009, with subsequent meetings in Nanjing, China (2011), Seoul, Korea (2013), and Danang, Vietnam (2015).

The ANZNMF meeting is the annual gathering of the ANZ Microfluidics community, which is an informal network of researchers working in the field in Australia and New Zealand with the aim of facilitating exchange of ideas and collaborative interactions. The network was inaugurated at the first ANZNMF meeting in Melbourne at Monash University in 2009. Successive meetings were hosted by University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney (2011), the MacDiarmid Institute in Wellington (2012), University of South Australia and Flinders University in Adelaide (2013), University of Tasmania in Hobart (2014), RMIT University, Deakin University and the Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication in Melbourne (2015) and Griffith University in Brisbane (2016).  


ANZNMF strives to provide an equitable and diverse forum for the discussion and exchange of scientific ideas. For more information please see our gender and diversity policy
