In nanotechnology, nanomachines are envisioned as the most basic functional unit able to perform very simple tasks at a nanoscale. Molecular and nanonetworks are the inter-connections of nanomachines expanding the capabilities of a single nanomachine. In this context, traditional communications paradigms are not applicable, and novel ones are required to interconnect them.

This workshop aims to capture the state-of-the-art by soliciting original novel contributions in this and related areas including, the following:
