Because the size of magnetic object could be shrink down to typical magnetic characteristic length like (domain size, domain wall thickness, exchange length ..) or typical electrical transport length like (electron mean free path, spin diffusion length ..) new spintronic properties were recently discovered. Moreover the possibility to manipulate magnetisation using polarised current and polarised light open new fields for research and applications. Consequently a lots of effort is focussing on the study magnetisation manipulation of e nano-object and their applications. The aim of this workshop is to gather different scientific community on this particular topic of the manipulation of spin and Magnetisation at the nanometer scale.

Nanomaterials 2016 is divided in two chapters : the scientific school IWST 2016 and the industrial Day N4S (Nanomaterials For Sensors).
