After 4 successful editions organised in Madrid, Bilbao & Avila, NanoSD2018 will again provide an opportunity to discuss general issues and important impacts of nanotechnology in the development of security and defense. A broad range of defense and security technologies and applications, such as nanostructures, nanosensors, nano energy sources, and nanoelectronics which are influencing these days will be discussed.

It is evident that nanotechnology can bring many innovations into the defense world such as new innovate products, materials and power sources. Therefore, NanoSD2018 will present current developments, research findings and relevant information on nanotechnology that will impact the security and defense.
