COMPinNANO Workshop

From October 2nd – 3rd 2015 the by University of Ljubljana / Slovenia is hosting together with the Institute of Life Sciences (Ahmedabad University, India) the Workshop COMPinNANO - Computational Approaches in Nanosciences. Interested students and scientists are cordially invited to attend the workshop and to present their current work by poster and short oral presentations. Topics covered include Organisation of large data sets for modelling, nano QSAR and data sharing amongst others.



  • Organisation of large data sets for modelling in general
  • Modelling of interactions between nanomaterials and biological models
  • Quantitative nanostructure activity (property) relationships
  • Organising data for risk assessment / data quality
  • Data sharing - Academia, Industry and Regulatory bodies

Spotlight Research

In September we would like to present a paper of the BMBF project Fe-Nanosit. The project dealt with the use of iron-containing nanomaterials in groundwater and wastewater remediation. A comprehensive assessment and weighing of benefits and possible environmental risks resulting from the application is now presented by the project partners in this paper.
