Welcome to the website of the workshop "Nonlinear Nanophotonics meets Nanomagnetism" that will be held at the Université du Maine, France. It is organized at the Institute of Molecules and Materials of Le Mans by Alexandr Alekhin, Gwenaelle Vaudel and Vasily Temnov.

This will be the 8th in a series of small format workshops devoted to selected topics in nanomagnetism that were started in 2009 by Prof. Dr. Hamid Kachkachi at the University of Perpignan, France.

The workshop will cover contributions related (but not restricted) to the following topics:
1. Optical and magnetic properties of metallic nanostructures
2. Nonlinear optical phenomena in optical materials and thin films/nanostructures, at surfaces/interfaces
3. Ultrafast dynamics of electrons, spins and phonons in thin films/nanostructures, at surfaces/interfaces
4. Ultrafast and nonlinear magnetization dynamics (ferromagnetic resonance/magnons) 
5. Nonlinear plasmonics and magneto-plasmonics

The workshop will last 4 full days (20-23.09.2016) and the program will include only invited talks (25+5 min or 20+5 in case there will be too many talks).

No registration fee will be charged. Participants will have to pay their accommodation and travel expenses.
All meals (lunches and dinners during the conference) will be covered by the project "Nonlinear Nanophotonics and Nanofabrication at TELECOM frequencies" (NNN-TELECOM):

For those who wish to stay on Friday, September 23rd, we will organize a one-day trip Chateaux de la Loire (see, for example, http://www.chateaux-de-la-loire.fr/paris.htm ).
It will be a full-day trip to one or two beautiful castles with lunch included. If you participate, it is recommended to plan the departure on Saturday, September 24th.

We are looking forward to see you in Le Mans!!!
Best regards,
Alexandr Alekhin and Vasily Temnov
