Scope of the Topical Meeting:

We kindly invite you to the Joint Topical Meeting on Nanoparticles Synthesis, Assembly, Characterization and Applications, Working Groups 1-4 and Management Committee Meeting, and Textbook Optical Nanospectroscopy Meeting, which will take place on 13-16 September 2016 in Warsaw, Poland.

The topical meeting on "Nanoparticles Synthesis,  Assembly, Characterization and Applications" will be a forum for scientists with experience in the field of the nanoparticles to present and exchange new research data and cutting edge ideas related to the scope of the workshop. We hope that meeting will also open new opportunities for collaboration between COST action members.

The scientific focus of the meeting will be on the fabrication of nanoparticles and their composites, nanoparticles assembly, techniques for their characterization, and a range of their applications.


  • Nanoparticle Synthesis and Assembly
  • Composites of Nanoparticles
  • Nanoparticles Characterization
  • Applications of Nanoparticles
