The Workshop will provide an interdisciplinary forum for Polish and French scientists working in the field of molecular and polymeric materials with emphasis on novel phenomena in electronics and nanophotonics. The objectives are to deepen existing and open new co-operations of researchers and to stimulate growth in this field.

The Second WOREN'2011 is a sequel to the previous highly successful First Workshop on Organic Electronics and Nanophotonics, held on 31/01-04/02, 2010 in Swieradow-Zdroj, Wroclaw, Poland. The conference had an attendance of about 80 highly selected participants from Poland and France.

This year 2011, this Conference will be organized by University of Angers on 4-9 September 2011 in Angers, France. The scope of the Workshop contains all the topics of interest of the first WOREN'2010 and the topics are as listed below:

  • Nanophotonics/Photonic crystals
  • Biophysics/Biophotonics applications
  • Functionalized compounds for NLO applications
  • Laser-matter interaction and nonlinear optical processes
  • Novel photonic nanostructures for optoelectronics applications
  • Applications of nanostructures and nanomaterials
  • Advanced materials and technologies

The proceedings of the conference (20 selected papers) will be published in the special edition of Optical Materials
