You are cordially invited to attend the 15th international conference of Near-field Optics and Nanophotonics (NFO-15) that will take place in the beautiful city of Troyes in the Champagne Region of France on August 26-31 2018.

Save the date!!

Following 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.
