Nanophotonics and Micro/Nano Optics International Conference 2017

NANOP 2017: Putting Nanophotonics to work.

Owing to the unique optical properties of nanometre-scale systems, Nanophotonics has become a very efficient tool to control light-matter interaction beyond the limit of diffraction. Recent developments in this field have shown the immense potential of nanophotonics to contribute to a wide spectrum of scientific disciplines, ranging from fundamental physics to optical engineering, and from biology to clean energies.

This second edition of the NANOP conference focuses on the transversal nature of Nanophotonics, by offering an international forum on the latest advances in the field from basic to applied research.

The full paper submission is optional: once your abstract has been accepted by the Scientific Committee and presented during the conference, you can choose whether to submit your full paper for publication or not.

The conference proceedings will be published by the Journal of Physics: Conference Series (IOP).

Partner-400x200pix_IOP-institute-of-physics-publishing-JPCS-Journal-of-Physics-Conference-Series-150We are delighted to announce that the SCOPUS-indexed Journal of Physics: Conference Series (IOP) has been chosen as its publication partner this year.

Only authors whose abstracts have been presented at NANOP 2017 can submit the corresponding full paper to be considered for the Conference Proceedings. The full paper length is limited to 6 pages and authors must comply with the following guidelines when submitting:

For each submitted paper, the referees will be appointed by the Conference Guest Editor Committee. Once the reviewing process is completed, the result will be notified to the author. The authors are required to follow the referees’ recommendations in order to improve their paper before the final submission.

The full papers must be submitted and reviewed via an online platform (The platform link will be available after the conference)

Important deadlines

  • Submission of manuscripts start: September 25, 2017
  • Submission of manuscripts end: November 14, 2017
