the first edition in Besanšon (France) in 1992, NFO conference
has since been held every second year all over the world. This
conference is now the most established and outstanding
scientific event that focuses on near-field optics,
nanophotonics, plasmonics and related domains.
26 years later, and 2 years after the latest successful
presentation of this event in Japan, NFO is back in France!
The University of Technology of
Troyes (UTT) is proud to host NFO-15. UTT is a young,
modern and dynamic University where high level science and
technology are developed at the service of knowledge,
humanity and society.
We invite you to discover the city of Troyes and the Champagne
Region. Experience French culture, art and history in our
medieval city located on the Seine river about 93 miles
southeast of Paris. Time hasn't taken its toll on many typical
16th-century houses that have survived in the old town. Dating
back to the Roman period, the once so-called Augustobona
Tricassium stood at the hub of numerous highways, primarily
the Via Agrippa and used to be a major international trade
center. Nowadays, besides its famous local cheese and
chocolate makers, Troyes is also renowned for its factory
outlets for international clothing brand names of which some
have set their production headquarters locally.
Please, do join us and enjoy a great scientific program,
engaging discussions, delicious food, amazing art and history,
and of course, drinking Champagne!!
On behalf of the organizing committee: Renaud Bachelot and
JÚrome Plain, conference chairs.
