We are glad to invite you to take part in the 7th edition of the Workshop on Plasmonics and its Applications, "PLASMONICA 2019", to be held on June 19-21, 2019 in Naples, Italy.

Plasmonica is an annual conference aimed at bringing together a thriving community of researchers working on Plasmonics and Nanophotonics. In particular, the conference encourages early career researchers, PhD students, and post-docs to share their latest results, to discuss recent advances in the field, and to start new collaborations on challenging scientific problems.

PLASMONICA 2019 is organized by the University of Naples "Federico II" and by the CNR Institute for Microelectronics and Microsystems (IMM) - Naples unit, and it is supported by SIOF (the Italian branch of EOS)

Looking forward to seeing you in Napoli !

San Marcellino & Festo Complex

The construction of the chiostro began in 1567, when the monasteries of Santi Marcellino e Pietro and Santi Festo e Desiderio (both dating back to the VIII century) were unified, and ended up in 1772. It has a rectangular courtyard surrounded by a portico (three pillared arches) with decorations in piperno; an eight-twentieth-century garden decorated with various fountains in piperno and marble stands in the center. On the south side, there is access to the splendid church of San Marcellino e Festo, now crown jewel of the University Congress Center.
