WELCOME the International Nano-Optoelectronics Workshop 2016, organized jointly by the Walter Schottky Institute of the Technische Universität München (TUM) and the Julius Maximilian University of Würzburg. The physics of nanoscale materials and their devices is a blossoming area of research and development in both academic and industrial laboratories around the world, and the iNOW 2016 workshop will be an unmissable opportunity for young researchers in the field to engage in discussions and share their own ideas on state-of-the-art nanoscale semiconductor processing and synthesis, the new physics behind controlling the optical and electrical properties of materials, cutting edge characterization techniques, and new devices with novel functionalities. As with previous iNOWs, the workshop will feature tutorial-style talks given by leaders of research fields, poster sessions for student presentations, rump sessions, and ample time to enjoy two of Germany's most beautiful cities: Würzburg and München! The iNOW 2016 will be held in two locations in the state of Bavaria: the first part will be held at the Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS) at the Campus Garching of the TUM and the second part will be in the city of Würzburg, held at the Toscana hall in the archbishop's palace the Residenz, a UNESCO world heritage site.

There will also be several social events such as the banquet and excursions in both cities. The workshop promises ample opportunities for interaction with peers, inspiring presentations, exciting discussions, and invigorating debates. We hope your experiences here will stimulate future collaborations and spark future breakthroughs.

We are looking forward to welcome you to München and Würzburg for the iNOW 2016!
