Nanophotonics and Micro/Nano Optics International Conference 2018
2018-10-01 to 2018-10-03
Rome, Italy

Nanophotonics in the last years is showing clearly its inclusive nature. Several disciplines are taking advantages in using novel tools derived from the astonishing progress in Nanophotonics, for exploring novel fundamental properties of materials on different length scale. The optical methods, both experimental and theoretical, are ubiquitous in several fields facilitating the development of a common language even for disciplines considered far, just a few years ago.

This third edition of NANOP confirms a broad topics list with the aim of bridging the macro with the molecular world. link

This year, the Spanish Network of Advanced Light Microscopy (REMOA, and the Portuguese Platform for Bioimaging ( will join for a second time following the former successful meeting 2016 in Bilbao (Spain) in order to celebrate the Spanish-Portuguese Meeting for Advanced Optical Microscopy (SPAOM2018). This event will take place in Granada (Spain) from the 23rd to 26th (Tuesday to Friday) of October 2018.

The Scientific Committee of the Congress has defined an appealing scientific program, full of opportunities for bioimaging scientists and professionals from Spain, Portugal and beyond to meet and interact within this growing community. These opportunities include lectures by keynote speakers, invited speakers, selected speakers, numerous flash communications, poster presentations, a broad commercial exhibition with company workshops, broad participation of REMOA/PPBI members in community technological workshops and of course social events.

We would like to cordially invite you to participate in our meeting. The event will take place in Granada, the capital city of the province located in the Andalusian region (Southern Spain), just at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains range, and just an hour from the Mediterranean and the tropical coast by car. Granada’s vast heritage includes the Alhambra Moorish citadel (UNESCO’s World Heritage Site) and the Generalife palaces, which combine Nasrid works of art with rich architecture embracing numerous Renaissance and Baroque buildings. Granada is also a centre of scientific excellence, and has been recently awarded the official distinction of “City of Science and Innovation” by the Spanish Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness, to recognise the activity of the numerous research institutes, technological infrastructures and institutions, including the prestigious University of Granada. link
