Dear Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to announce the 5th International Conference from Nanoparticles and Nanomaterials to Nanodevices and Nanosystems (IC4N). Following four previous successful conferences, this year's IC4N goes to the exclusive area of Porto Heli, Argolid-Peloponnese. Argolid is one of the most historical and beautiful locations in Greece and home of the ancient sites of Mycenae, magnificent theater of Epidauros, and Nafplion.

As in previous editions of this highly popular conference series, the overarching goal of this event is to combine a very high quality of scientific dialogue with a relaxing environment. This is a unique opportunity for both senior and junior researchers to exchange ideas and stimulate collaborations on a global scale. This year's event kicks off with plenary, keynote and invited lectures by renowned scientists from all over the world making IC4N the Nano forum of the highest quality.

We look forward to seeing you in Porto Heli
On behalf of the Organizing Committee.
