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), 2011 (Las Vegas, Nevada) , 2012 (Orlando, Florida) and 2013 (Houston, Texas).

The 2015 conference will take place at Cancun during the week of June 8th to 11th. Cancun is situated on the south-east coast of Mexico in the state of Quintana Roo in the Yucatan Peninsula. Warm white powdery sand beaches and turquoise crystal clear waters together with the famous Mexican hospitality make this a place like no other! We encourage you to give yourself some time for recreational pursuits! In this friendly and stimulating place, 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.
