This 5th edition of the international conference wholly dedicated to Optical Nano-Systems covers a spectrum from applied to basic research of this domain providing a forum for all the aspects with the purpose of advancing the state-of-the-art of nanoscale optics.

New properties in nanoscale structures can be dramatically tuned with size and shape of the nanostructures. Completely different optical behaviours are produced compared to the bulk counterparts, such as narrow linewidths for emission, solar energy conversion, etc. Indeed materials and applications require strong effort to develop spectroscopy and microscopy tools allowing visualization and manipulation of optical properties with nanoscale resolution.
