Terms & Conditions

Special Instructions and Code of Conduct at #NanoSeries2024

As we eagerly count down to the #NanoSeries2024 Conference at Instituto Superior Técnico University in Lisbon, Portugal, from June 17 to 19, 2024, we're delighted to share some important details to enhance your experience:

1. Weather in Lisbon during June:

Lisbon, renowned for its Mediterranean climate, offers a delightful ambiance in June. While the days are pleasantly warm with average temperatures ranging from 18°C to 28°C (64°F to 82°F), it's advisable to be prepared for slightly cooler evenings. The city basks in sunshine, so don't forget to bring sunglasses, sunscreen, and a light jacket for the evenings.

2. Cultural Fusion:

Lisbon, a city steeped in history and vibrancy, offers a cultural fusion that extends beyond the conference walls. Take advantage of your time here to explore the city's treasures and network in a relaxed environment.

3. Venue Elegance:

Our chosen venue, Instituto Superior Técnico University, is not just a space for learning but an architectural marvel. Nestled in the heart of Lisbon, it promises an inspiring backdrop for the exchange of groundbreaking ideas in nanotechnology.

4. Climatic Conditions to Consider:

Given the warm weather, it's crucial to stay hydrated. Lisbon's sunny climate can be deceptively intense, so we recommend carrying a reusable water bottle to ensure you remain refreshed. Additionally, consider bringing a hat, especially if you plan to explore the city during breaks.

5. Professional Attire:

We encourage all attendees to dress in business or business casual attire to maintain a professional atmosphere throughout the conference. Men may opt for dress shirts, slacks, and blazers, while women may choose business dresses, blouses with skirts or slacks, or professional dresses. Comfortable yet elegant footwear is recommended as you may be on your feet for various networking opportunities.

6. Meeting Room Etiquette:

To ensure a conducive environment for all conference attendees, please adhere to the following meeting room etiquette:

  • Timely Arrival: Begin each day by arriving at least 30 minutes before your session. This ensures a smooth start and allows for any updates to be communicated promptly.
  • Connectivity: Enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the conference venue. However, please note that electrical outlets will not be available for safety reasons.
  • Tech Etiquette: To maintain a focused environment, please switch your mobile phones to silent mode before entering sessions. Capture the moments responsibly, ensuring camera flashes are turned off during presentations.
  • Advertising Guidelines: Respect the conference environment by refraining from distributing advertising materials, except for our valued exhibitors and sponsors.
  • Networking Oasis: Leverage the networking breaks to connect with fellow participants and speakers. Engage in discussions that extend beyond the conference sessions and forge lasting connections.
