We are happy to announce the Seventh Nanomanipulation Workshop, which will take place in Jena, Germany, on February 20-22, under the sponsorship of COST Action MP1303. Following the tradition, which started in Portugal six years ago, we aim to bring together scientists who are active in the field of controlled manipulation of atoms, clusters, and nanoscale objects using scanning probe techniques. Additionally, some of us will try to answer the closely related question: "How to tune nanofriction?" Jena is located…

The Second European Workshop on Understanding and Controlling Nano and Mesoscale Friction About the workshop Recent years have seen widespread efforts to understand the mechanisms of friction and tribology in micrometric structures (mesoscale) down to the realm of atoms and molecules (nanoscale), with the ultimate goal of controlling friction, adhesion and wear by design. This research has generated an interdisciplinary scientific area, nanotribology, with great potential impact on technology and everyday life. Applications include safety, economy, life quality, energy and…
