The Third International Workshop on Metallic Nano-Objects (MNO 2016) will be held at the University Lyon 1 from 2nd to 4th November 2016.

This workshop will be built on the success of the previous editions (Saint-Etienne 2012 and Lille 2014). It aims to provide an overview on recent advances and challenges in the development of metallic nano-objects and their applications. Academics from various national and international universities and institutes are expected to participate to the workshop. During these three days, invited and submitted talks will be given by key expert speakers on the elaboration, assembly, manipulation, modeling and characterization of metallic nano-objects, as well as on their applications.
