Following the success of the previous editions of ElecNano 1-4 (2006, 2008, 2009 and 2011) the electrochemistry group of the French Chemical Society, the electrochemists of the University of Denis Diderot in Paris, and the electrochemists of the Institute of Molecular Sciences in Bordeaux (Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie, Biologie et Physique, ENSCBP) have the pleasure to organize the fifth edition of Electrochemistry in Nanoscience meeting. This 5th edition will be held in Bordeaux at the ENSCBP Engineering School from May 15th to 17th 2013. The topic of this special edition will be:

The nanoscale and electroanalysis:
surface nanostructuration, nanobiological systems, coupled techniques, microsystems

The major goals of the meeting are to show the contribution of electrochemistry in nanoscale and electroanalysis for microsystems with a special emphasize on surface nanostructuration, nanobiological systems and coupled techniques. The purpose of ElecNano5 is to bring together the leading scientists in electrochemistry and the scientists working in nanosciences and nanotechnology for microsystems, in order to stimulate intensive discussions, initiate cooperations, and improve the personal exchanges regarding these topics. Participation of young scientists (PhD, Students and Post-Docs) is particularly encouraged.
