The ICSNN (International Conference on Superlattices, Nanostructures and Nanodevices) is a biennial conference series with a tradition lasting back to the 1980s, usually being the largest satellite conference to the International Conference on the Physics of Semiconductors (ICPS). Next year the ICPS will be held in Montpellier (France) the week after ICSNN. In the past decade ICSNN was held in:
Kyongju, South Korea (2000)
Toulouse, France (2002)
Cancun, Mexico (2004)
Istanbul, Turkey (2006)
Natal, Brazil (2008)
Beijing, China (2010)
Dresden, Germany (2012)
Savanna, USA (2014)
Hong Kong, China (2016)
