Call for communications

The French “GdR Nanofils Semiconducteurs” is organizing its next workshop focused on “Semiconductor
Nanowires Based Sensors” on November 13-14, 2012. This event will be held in Rennes (Bretagne,
It will cover all topics related to chemical, biological, mechanical sensors based on nanowires.
The program will consist of invited talks, oral presentations and posters. The workshop is intended to be a
forum for lively discussions in a relaxed atmosphere.
