The Nanoscale Editorial Office is delighted at the success of the Nanoscience Symposium which occurred at the ChinaNANO 2015 conference in Beijing from 3rd-5th September. This one-day symposium included talks from the Nanoscale Associate Editors about their latest research covering topics such as carbon nanomaterials, nanoelectronics, bionanomaterials, nanophotonics, nanoclusters and nanocrystals.
Some articles submitted to Nanoscale from delegates of the ChinaNANO 2015 conference can be found below.

There was a great turn-out and we received a lot of useful feedback from the attendees.
A prominent highlight of the event was the reception organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry to celebrate the launch of Nanoscale Horizons as well as the Nanoscale and Nanoscale Horizons partnership with the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology (NCNST) in Beijing which included cutting an enormous cake!
