5th EMN Croatia Meeting on Photonics & Nanowires

Attention: Considering the global situation of COVID-19, we have to postpone the meeting. Please do not book tickets, accommodation for the meeting until further notice.
The 5th EMN Croatia Meeting on Photonics & Nanowires will take place from October 26 to 30, 2020 in Importanne Hotels & Resort, Dubrovnik, Croatia!

The meeting aims to be a unique platform for leading scientists, researchers, scholars and engineers from academia, R&D laboratories and industry around the world to exchange, share and learn the most recent advancement on various aspects related to photonics and nanowires.

Attracted by the city’s limestone streets, baroque buildings and the endless shimmer of the Adriatic, you will find many reasons to visit Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik is a city on the Adriatic Sea in southern Croatia. It is one of the most prominent tourist destinations in the Mediterranean Sea, a seaport and the centre of Dubrovnik-Neretva County. In 1979, the city of Dubrovnik joined the UNESCO list of World Heritage sites. Croatia is a member of the European Union (EU).

The meeting will be a few days of intense collaboration with great social occasions. It will be not only be a time to enjoy the company of fellow researchers in the field, but also a time to have fun with friends and family!

Look forward to having the pleasure welcoming you to the meeting.
