Register Now! www.ceramics.org/electrospin2014 3rd InternationalConference on Electrospinning PLENARY SPEAKERS Il-Doo Kim, KAIST, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Korea Kim received his Ph.D. (2002) from the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). From 2003 to 2005, he was a postdoctoral fellow with Harry L. Tuller at MIT. He returned to KAIST as a senior research scientist, and in Feb. 2011, became a faculty member in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. Kim’s current research emphasizes controlled processing and characterization of functional nanobers via electrospinning for practical applications in exhaled breath sensors and energy storage devices, such as Li–ion, Li–S, and Li–air batteries. Kim served as a conference chair at the 2012 International Conference on Electrospinning in Jeju, South Korea. He has published more than113 articles and holds 122 patents. Kim is a deputy editor of the Journal of Electroceramics. Luana Persano, Nanoscience Institute, National Research Council-CNR, Italy Persano, who holds a Ph.D. in innovative materials and technologies (2006), is staff researcher at the National Research Council– Nanoscience Institute. She has been a Marie- Curie fellow at the Foundation for Research & Technology– Hellas, Greece, and visiting scientist at Harvard University and University of Illinois. Her research interests include nanomanufacturing, conventional and soft lithography on organics and nanocomposites semiconductors, photonic and piezoelectric devices, and electrospinning technology transfer. Since 2003, she has authored or coauthored 70 papers in refereed journals, book chapters, and one international patent. She has several oral and invited contributions to international conferences. Among other prizes, she received the CNR-Start-Cup award in 2010 and the Bellisario award as Young Talent in Industrial Engineering in 2011. Alexander Yarin, University of Illinois at Chicago, Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, USA Yarin received his Ph.D. (1980) and his D.S.C. (1989) from the Institute for Problems in Mechanics, USSR Academy of Sciences. He has been senior research associate at The Academy of Sciences of the USSR, Moscow (1977–1990); professor at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology (1990–2006), and at the University of Illinois at Chicago, USA (2006–present). Concurrently, he has been professor at Korea University, Seoul, South Korea (2013–present). Yarin was a Fellow of the Center for Smart Interfaces at the Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany (2008–2012). Yarin is the author of three books, 10 book chapters, about 250 research papers, and six patents. He is an associate editor of the journal Experiments in Fluids and one of the three coeditors of Springer Handbook of Experimental Fluid Mechanics, (2007). The recent book by A.L. Yarin, B. Pourdeyhimi, and S. Ramakrishna is Fundamentals and Applications of Micro- and Nanobers, (Cambridge University Press 2014). 40 www.ceramics.org | American Ceramic Society Bulletin, Vol. 93, No. 5
