Dear Colleagues!

The 7th International Conference on Nanomaterials and Advanced Energy Storage Systems (INESS-2019) was organized by Nazarbayev University (NU), Institute of Batteries (IoB), National Laboratory Astana (NLA) and Kazakh National University (KazNU) and was held on August 7-9 in Almaty at Kazakh National University Library . Researchers from Singapore, France, Korea, Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, China, Taiwan and Kazakhstan participated in the conference to share their knowledge about the latest development in the field of nanomaterials, energy conversion, storage systems, modelling and nanobiology.  The participants stated that INESS, although keeping an almost constant number of participants, is a rapidly growing conference in terms of its level, and became a well-recognized international platform to exchange the ideas and build new collaboration.
