Description: Nanotechnology refers to the creation of useful materials, devices and systems via the manipulation of matter on a miniscule scale; a nanometer being a billionth of a meter. Nanotechnology is being applied to almost every field imaginable, including electronics, magnetics, optics, information technology, materials development and biomedicine. The 190 selected peer-reviewed papers presented here are grouped into: Chapter 1: Nanotechnology and Industrial Application, Chapter 2: Computer Science and Engineering, Chapter 3: Communications and Management, Chapter 4: Control and Automation. This is an excellent introduction to the field for those interested in the exploitation of nanotechnology.

Description: This collection comprises selected papers from the 3 rd International Congress on Energy and Environment Engineering and Management. Each Congress provides an opportunity for academics, scientific consultants and companies to share days of interaction that permit the free interchange of experience and, at the same time, create and renew links between different work-groups. This Congress included a total of six thematic areas, covering a broad spectrum within the applications associated with environmental engineering, energy installations, renewable energy, electromechanics, materials and project engineering. The contents therefore provide a handy introduction to the subject.

Description: During the past twenty years, digital design and manufacturing technology has become indispensable in many and various applications world-wide; involving many products and rapidly expanding markets. It has not only provided industry with new methods, tools and digitalized products - from design, materials processing to operating and management procedures - but is also changing the approaches, thinking patterns and working environments of people in the manufacturing field.
The rapid growth of digital design and manufacturing processes has also brought with it some processing work-flow challenges. While the various resultant products provide an ideal solution for some processing steps, more dedicated and integrated systems are sometimes required. How best can one handle incoming data and orders, automate the design and perhaps engineering, make robust plans, manage the process and data and deliver quality goods.
