On July 19, the Nano Korea Organization committee announced that 'Nano Korea 2010 with IEEE NANO ' will be held from August 17 to 20 at KINTEX, Korea. The theme of its 8th event is "'Nanotechnology for a Green World'. During the event they will redefine various issues about environment and energy in the nano-technical perspective, share of nano-technology information from the world's scholars as well as exchange different opinions to solve these issues.

Especially this year, IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) to host the conference and large numbers of international scholars will visit including two Nobel Prize winners in the field of nanotechnology. It is confirmed that the status of Korea is No. 4 in Nanotechnology, internationally.

Starting with keynote speeches by Robert Grubbs (2005 Nobel Prize), Peter Grunberg (2007 Nobel Physics Prize), Kim Ki-nam, President  of Samsung Electronic, 1,000 studies will be announced with more than 300 lectures for four days.
