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) and 2011 (Las Vegas, Nevada). 

The 2012 conference will take place at the Doubletree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld hotel during the week of April 16th to 20th.   The hotel spreads across 28 acres of rich tropical landscape in the heart of Orlando, minutes from the most popular attractions.  In this friendly and stimulating atmosphere, we will create a dynamic platform where scientists and engineers focusing on various issues pertaining to current and emerging technologies in the areas of clean energy, complex oxide materials, environmental research, metamaterials, iron pnictide superconductors, topological insulators, and nanotechnology can converse, discuss, debate and share knowledge and ideas about prospective directions and approaches.
