The URSI-France 2022 workshop, organized under the auspices of the French Academy of Sciences, will focus on "Nano, meso, micro: science and innovation for radio and photonics". Although based on very powerful physical concepts, these technologies disseminate towards the application, by offering technical or technological solutions with high innovation potential. The workshop will be held on the campus of Telecom Paris, Institut Polytechnique de Paris, in Palaiseau (France), from March 22 to March 23, 2022.

These Days are intended to bring together the scientific communities concerned with the development, physics and integration of micro, meso and nanocomponents based on semiconductors or new materials with the aim of micro and nano electronics, radio science, optoelectronics, and quantum photonics.

In this context, the workshop will be organized around oral sessions and posters. Most sessions will be introduced by invited speakers, presenting the state of the art and / or recent developments, followed by papers that have been selected by the Scientific Committee.

The scientific fields covered are broad and range from the study of elementary materials and components to quantum technologies and their integration into systems with particular emphasis on the themes below.

Main topics:

  • Micro-nanotechnologies and systems, new materials and nanostructures, 1D & 2D nanomaterials Metasurfaces, large surface nanostructured materials;
  • Metamaterials and reconfigurable components and circuits, micro and nano-antennas;
  • Micro and nanophotonics, photonic crystals, metamaterials, plasmonics, order and disorder, mesoscopic systems;
  • Photonic components, photonic and optoelectronic integration;
  • Electronic components and micro-nano-electronic integration, THz components and technologies;
  • Components in extreme / specific environments;
  • Electronics and organic nanophotonics, nanosensors, MEMS and NEMS;
  • Quantum technologies, quantum sensors, spintronics, quantum communications, quantum computing
  • Development of instruments for radio and photonics at small scales / very high frequencies.


The 2022 URSI-France workshop was taked place on the TELECOM PARIS campus (https://www.telecom-paris.fr) in Palaiseau, on March 22 to 23, 2022.

URSI-France Medal, Radiosciences PHD Award

The workshop will be the opportunity to remit the annual URSI-France Medal as well as the Radiosciences PhD Award, under the aegis of URSI and URSI-France.

Young scientific grant 

Young scientific grant of 300 euros and a free registration will be awarded to the principal author and presenter of the best article, if he is under 35 and affiliated to a European laboratory other than French.


The texts of the communications will be grouped together in proceedings, an electronic version of which will be available on this web site.

A selection of papers will be proposed for publication, either in a special issue of the Comptes rendus Physique de l’Académie des sciences or in the Revue de l’électricité et de l’électronique (REE).

Submission Information

Proposals for papers should be submitted online via https://ursifr-2022.sciencesconf.org/ in the form of a clear and concise text of one to two pages, with sufficient content to allow their scientific evaluation. For further information on paper submission, see Template
