The International Workshop on Nano and Bio-Photonics (IWNBP), organized jointly with the French-Korean Meeting on Functional Material for Organic Optics, Electronics and Devices (FUNMOOD) will be held on Domaine des Hautannes in Saint Germain au Mont D'Or near Lyon (France) from October 23th to October 28th 2011.

Second Circular now on-line

This symposium will be an excellent forum for state of art presentations by invited speakers, leading specialists in the field of photonics, short oral presentations and poster sessions on most recent achievements and progress realized in the field covered by the conference. An important amount of time will be devoted for discussions. As a lot of the conference participants will be lodged in the same site; so contacts between them will be greatly facilitated, leading to enriched discussions and facilitating also start of scientific collaborations

Important Deadlines

August 31st, 2011: Registration and payment.
October 23rd , 2011: Manuscripts submission.

Symposium Chair

Chantal Andraud (École Normale Supérieure de Lyon, CNRS, Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, Lyon, France)
François Kajzar (Université d'Angers, Angers, France)

The meeting will cover multidisciplinary disciplines as optics, chemistry, physics, and materials sciences for photonic devices with original optical, electronic, electrochromic, photochromic, photoluminescent or electroluminescenc properties. The design and properties (from synthesis to characterization, computational modeling, device fabrication) of novel, engineered materials with potential for applications in nanophotonics or biophotonics will be of special interest in this symposium. The meeting will consist of plenary and invited lectures giving the state of art in the field of nonlinear optics and practical applications. The most recent achievements will be presented in shorter contributed talks.

A poster session will be also organized.

Lot of time will be devoted for discussions!


The Conference Proceeding will be published in a special edition of a peer review international journal. For more information, see the abstract and proceeding page.
