Nano-Synergetics is a French/Japanese International Associate Laboratory built on research groups from ENS Paris-Saclay, Lille University, Osaka University, NAIST, Kyoto University and Aoyama Gakuin University. Projects within Nano-Synergetics aim at designing and studying novel complex photochromic molecular nanomaterials (organic and hybrid) based on nonlinear cooperative effects, multi-photon processes and multifunctionality.

This Nano-synergetics Workshop for Young Researchers, March 29ᵗʰ – 30ᵗʰ 2018, will be devoted to “Photo-active Materials with Cooperative and Synergetic Responses” and will take place 29ᵗʰ March at Lilliad and 30ᵗʰ March at CERLA – Lille University – 30ᵗʰ 2018 – Lille University (Campus Cité Scientifique) . The scientific meeting will consist of about 4-6 keynotes from established Japanese & French Professors, 30-40 oral presentations of young researchers and a poster session / cocktail on Thursday evening.

This Workshop will also actively contribute to the celebration of the 160ᵗʰ anniversary of diplomatic relations between France and Japan in 2018, encouraging future collaborations among the new generation of researchers (Master2, Ph.D. course students, Post Doctorates or assistant professors).

We expect participants not only from our laboratories but from a wider scientific community. Topics will be related, not only, but mainly to the following aspects

Photo-mechanical effects
Magnetism and Plasmonics
Photo-emissive (nano-)materials
Supramolecular materials
Multiphoton processes and dynamics
Advanced data analysis and chemometrics


Registration & Abstract submission

Registration is free and limited to the first 100 participants. It includes coffee break, lunch & diner on 29ᵗʰ March and lunch on 30ᵗʰ March.

Deadline for registration and oral / poster abstract submission is 31st January 2018.

Oral acceptance and final program will be announced by 15th of February.
