The 11th International Conference on Nanophotonics (ICNP 2018), will be held on 2–6 July, 2018, at the Wrocław University of Science and Technology, Wrocław, Poland. ICNP is a unique event where the latest advances in optics and photonics, both in nano- and micro-scales, are reported and discussed. It was conceived with the primary aim of bringing researchers from around the globe together to present novel ideas in nanophotonic science and technology with social and economic impacts, in areas of global concern. The topics of discussion include applications of nanophotonics from information processing to communications; from biomedical to life sciences; from energy harvesting and storage to environment and conservation. The conference’s broad themes and highly exciting 21st century challenges, ensure that researchers at all levels in this growing field to have an excellent opportunity to report their work and exchange information with fellow co-workers.
In the past two decades, nanophotonics has emerged as a multidisciplinary frontier of science and engineering, which is capturing the imagination of many researchers worldwide because of its vast potential to unleash breakthroughs in many areas of technology. It has already expanded our physical intuition beyond the usual boundaries of science, including engineering the photon density of state, negative index materials, cloaking, and generalizing Snell’s law.
This Special Issue on nanophotonics is expected to select excellent papers on the topic of nanophotonics; contributions from researchers who did not attend the ICNP are welcome and will be given full consideration. It aims to explore novel ideas in nanophotonic science and technology that enable technological breakthroughs in high impact areas including, but not limited to:
• Metamaterials and metasurfaces
• Photonic Crystals
• Random and Nanolasers
• Nanofibers and integration
• Self Assembly and Nanochemistry
• Nanobiophotonics: Imaging, Sensing, Nanomedicine
• Nanofabrication and Nanocharacterization
• Green Nanophotonics, e.g., Photovoltaics
• Modeling and Simulation at the nanoscale
• Quantum Optics and Computing at the Nanoscale
• Silicon Photonics
• Nonlinear Optics at the Nanoscale
We also cordially invite researchers from the conference who would like to publish their original research articles in this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
