It is our great pleasure to invite you to take part in the 8th edition of the Workshop on Plasmonics and its Applications, "PLASMONICA 2022", to be held on July 7-8, 2022 in Turin, Italy.

Plasmonica is an annual conference aimed at bringing together a thriving community of researchers interested in Plasmonics and Nanophotonics. In particular, the conference encourages the attendance of early career researchers, PhD students, and post-docs, as an opportunity to share their latest results, to discuss recent advances in the field, and to start new collaborations on challenging scientific topics. The Workshop will follow the Third Edition of the International School on Plasmonics and Nano-Optics, July 4-7, 2022.

The Politecnico di Torino main campus is a large complex of buildings in Corso Duca degli Abruzzi. It was opened in November 1958, after the former Industrial Museum was completely destroyed during World War II.The buildings were originally designed for use as classrooms, laboratories, offices and rooms for the requirements of the various institutions. Over the years the campus has been extended to meet the changes in both teaching and management needs. Particular attention has been paid to creating study rooms, green areas and other facilities in order to create a pleasant environment. All communal areas across the campus are easily accessible with no architectural barriers and comply with current fire safety regulations. The construction of the new Cittadella Politecnica complex in Corso Castelfidardo began in 1997 when Politecnico di Torino acquired the former Officine Grandi Riparazioni. The Cittadella has greatly extended the main campus and demonstrates the importance placed on developing strong links between the Politecnico di Torino and the socio-economic structure of the surrounding region. The Cittadella is a single integrated complex of buildings of high architectural and urban value whose spaces are used by companies and management services, University and individual citizens.
