Ongoing rapid progress in the synthesis of different nanostructures and their fascinating physical and chemical properties not associated with bulk materials, have motivated a significant and potentially long-lasting increase of human resources and financial investments into this research field all over the world. No other area of materials research combines the exciting progress in fundamental research with the immediate promise of its realization in new devices & products that have both high societal impact and high commercial potential. The potential of nano-sized elements and nano-structured materials for electromagnetic fields manipulation and processing motivates recent invention of a new research discipline - nanoelectromagnetics. This conference aims to provide a forum for scientists specializing in different areas of the nanoparticles and nanostructured materials synthesis and applications to interact with their counterparts working in the areas of electromagnetic theory and applied electromagnetics. We expect fruitful discussions to both stimulate the development of nanoelectromagnetics and introduce the language and the problems of the present-day electromagnetics and photonics to the nano-materials research community. The conference thus has a very wide scope that encompasses various aspects of general theory, modeling, design, synthesis, characterization, applications ranging from commercial thin-film coatings to metamaterials to circuit components and nanodevices.
